i have heard of people breaking or cracking the wakeboards, i was wondering if anyone has broke a wakeskate or cracked one.

Yea i did, first day on a two week vacation. The plys on my cassette came apart. luckily they sent me a new one for free. I think i was to big so they send a bigger size.

Ya, cassettes 3ds don't last very long, especially if you hit rails with it.

lukem 06-03-2003 6:26 PM

I only rode wake with my last one(exept a couple times) and it made it around 6 months.

ya ive broken a wakeskate... I was shortlining... about 10 ft behind the boat and some JackA$$ in the boat threw a wakeboard at me... and being that I was not looking at the boat ran over it and shattered my skate into pieces... also since I fell and I was on the short line the kid 20 ft behind me ran my a$$ over... I was a very unhappy camper to say the least.... and no wakeskate will last while sliding it... as long as its made of wood... <BR> <BR> <BR>Peace

Don't get discouraged Luke. Most Cassettes last MUCH longer than 6 months - unless ofcourse, if you're hitting sliders or docks. The Concave Cassette is also much sturdier than the flat deck.

thinair 06-05-2003 6:42 PM

I disagree with the concaves are much sturdier than the flat deck. My flat decks have lasted my friends and I longer the the 3Ds have. It isn't just me, I have 5 guys that I wakeskate with that have had the same experiences as me. The 3Ds don't last them a month. If you are just getting into it though the 3D should last you a year, I don't mean to discourage you, I like the way they ride a lot.

wakeguru 06-06-2003 9:27 AM

Foam, how are these guys trashing their skates in a month? You've got to be talking sliding. <BR>Greg, I heard the fiberglass Hyperlite's are tough. What up?

thinair 06-06-2003 7:17 PM

Ya rails and D-ups. Scratch a board all up on sketchy rails and water gets in=broken board.

gvw686 06-07-2003 1:24 PM

o ya were slidin em but breakin in like a week or so is quick, and it didnt break on the slider it broke when i did like 1 of them runnin jumpin off a dock starts, its not the new hyperlites it was a core, but we got some new wood decks now so itll b sweet thell b a lot harder to break

wannagowakin 08-25-2003 12:36 PM

will a flat cassette break that easily w/ an occassional slide?

todd_g 11-05-2003 8:42 PM

i broke a old hyperlite wakeskate on a huge wakejump. It broke right in half

dropzero 11-06-2003 3:37 PM

Todd, you also broke a Liquid Force Cassette 41 on a huge wake jump...

motoxxx02 01-19-2004 7:39 PM

Im confused ? how long does it take for water to get into a wood cassette to make it break ?

huckleberry 01-21-2004 7:54 PM

I've got a Obrien Triffic w/ that Impact Base. Will that help keep the water from getting inside when sliding?

wakeskate247 01-21-2004 8:31 PM

if its wood water WILL get in bc thats what wood does, it absorbs water and the water then breaks away the glue holding the plys together and that causes the board to break, so a wood deck will eventually break, just depends how much damage you do to it. I havent heard of one of the new Hyperlite boards breaking but who knows, a pro could break just about any kinda board, but the average wakeskater probly wont break one.

afxsguy 05-25-2004 9:31 AM

what if you clear coat the heck out of it to protect water from getting in? i know sliding rails and stuff will wear it down, but water shouldnt get in if the wood is protected right.

wakeskate247 05-26-2004 2:37 PM

thats right but the screw holes for the fins is your biggest concern, the screws will strip the protectant out and then water will seep in <BR>the only other thing i could think of is to put a plastic layer in the screw holes for your fins <BR>
