along with wakeboarding this year i would like to wakeskate a little. It looks like a lot of fun. Now i have rode on a wakeskate before and can control it quite well but i was wondering what is a good to start with.....i would like one with grip tape because i dont think the foam has good grip but all the boards with grip tape seem to be a bit pricey for me.....what would you guys recamend(SP?) i would like to keep it under like $150.
also can i buy a board with foam, tear the foam off and put grip tape on it?
