If you had to choose between one or the other giving up one forever which would you choose. I would choose wakeskating but I would change the name to something else like waterboarding because there aren't skates on a wake skate. A skateboard is just a roller skate with a board on it. Why can't people realize that wakeboarding and wakeskating have far greater potential then there silly non accurate names.

Tim, A name is just a name. It has no bearing on potential. <BR> <BR>Damn-it Tim, They should have named the keyboard a fingerboard. Then I would have been a faster typist. <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>To answer your question, It would be a tuff choice, but I think I'd choose wakeboarding.

It would be a tough call, but I would have to choose wakeskating cause it never seems to get boring, like with wakeboarding I tend to progress.. then plateau and it gets frustrating. But with wakeskating I can be working on like a bunch of different stuff, it seems like there is more room to be creative, its more fun and for some weird reason i can take longer sets. I like I can only last like 20-30min on wakeboard but I can ride for like 45min on the wakeskate, i think its cuase the bindings hurt after awhile and the sneakers keep my feet warmer in the salt water. Plus wakeskating doesn't require perfect conditions, wakeboarding doesn't necessarily require perfect conditions... but well i think u guys know what i mean, not sure how to articulate it. Don't get me wrong I luv wakeboarding to no end but if I HAD TO CHOOSE, after many nights of lost sleep I'd prolly choose wakeskating over wakeboarding.
