wakeskate speed help!!!!!!!
Ok... Im new to wakeskating, but dont get me wrong. I am a 6 year boat owner and have plenty of time towing, but just recently started to try wakeskating, and im gonna have to say IT'S SICK!!!! Coming from a skateboarding past I love it! But I need help with speed. Do I pull a wakeskate faster than a wakeboard? Please help make this easier!!!

I usually wakeskate slower than I wakeboard for shuvit tricks and body varials, but for wake to wake tricks we speed it up so it is easier to clear the wake... Hope this helps! I love wakeskating after a wakeboard set or before...Its hella fun

Depends on the boat. Usually 22-23 around 70 feet for me. That works for wake to wake and flats tricks. If it's too wide there, you can shorten up the rope.
