Wakeboarder -> Kiteboarder <BR> <BR>Following the boat got stale. Much better making your own lines and hitting some different conditions.

kneeboarder > wakeboarder > dabble in surf n' skate when frustrated, bored, or injured.

Cool profile pic JG. <BR> <BR>I'm a strapper. Wakeskating doesn't do much for me.

waterskier-->slalom-->barefooter-->wakeboarder-->wakesurf-->wakeboarder again-->SKYSKIER! <BR> <BR>*Any of the above now, depending on my mood and water conditions <BR> <BR>Hey Karl, you learned to ski as a fetus...that's one better than Parks! <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

wakeboarder at the cable-> wakeskate on the boat cause my wake is super small

denverd1 01-26-2010 1:33 PM

I'll warm up with the skate, then strap in. Ride skate mainly for a few days when season starts to get my balance back.

wtrgrl 01-26-2010 1:55 PM

wakeskate or die

benjaminp 01-26-2010 2:26 PM

Ski and slalom till 07, got wakeboarding a couple times behind my uncle's boat, my family got a boat the next year, and now its all wakeboarding unless I take a hard slam and want to screw around for a set (wakeskate raileys make fun crashes).

Dave - I am just that old. I started skiing at the age of 5. Only Tony Finn and a few of his friends were wakeboarding before I was. I got a board off of the first production run. I got a lot of strange looks on the lake back then. I shortened the rope to just about wakesurf length - just behind the rooster tail.

waketx05 01-27-2010 10:13 AM

wakeboard and then wakeskate for fun.. or just to be dumb. not saying wakeskating is dumb.. i just suck and anything other than riding it

wakemitch 01-27-2010 2:38 PM

Ryan P, i wakeskate for fun too. but why do you wakeboard if it isnt for fun?
