Well, I was thinking about makeing a skate compleatly from scratch out of some plywood and stuff... But then it hit me! What if there's a way I can turn my old wakeboard into a new wakeskate... <BR> <BR>So last night I pulled of the bindings and fins and started to think if there was a way I could sand down the wakeboard to wakeskate size, then put some griptape on it. <BR> <BR>Like I said, I just started last night, and I think I'm about 1/4 of the way done. I just hope it works, so I dont ruin a fairly good wakeboard. <BR> <BR>What do you guys think? I'v never realy been into wakeskateing untill about a week ago, and I think I'm gonna love it. But I dont want to spend 200+ bucks on somehting I might not like. <BR> <BR>So if this works, I'll post some pics and see what you guys think of it. <BR> <BR>dave ; )

do a search for this on google or something cause i was reading an article somewhere and it showed you how to take a wakeboard and make it into a wakeskate, but i forget the website. but good luck. i made my own wakeskate a couple of weeks and i think its awesome, ive only been wakeskating twice only and both times on my homemade deck so i dont know how it compares to a factory made. i call it the shifty board and i got a logo and everything so a few years down the road SHIFTY WAKESKATES may the just be the next casette.

there used to be alot of people who would cut the ends off the board, seal them with resin. Put griptape on and there you go. one wakeboard into wakeskate. <BR>
