Why do SOME wakeskaters at the cable think it is ok to cut to the front of the line? If you are waiting for a wakeboarder to put on bindings in front of you and there is an opening that's cool, nobody is complaining about that. Why do some skaters think it is ok to cut in front of 20 people.

I think it depends on the park. Where I used to work, it was ok for wakeskaters to jump up if they started from the ramp and not the bench. I think the logic is a wakeskater tends to fall more often since the tricks can be harder to land, so they don't ride as many times around as a wakeboarder does, but that logic goes out the door if the wakeskater is good enough and never falls. Cutting too much isn't cool though.

Why do some wakeboarders think it's ok? Why not say people? We're not here to discriminate against those who choose a more skilled and artistic water art form are we? Or is this part of a secret plan to rid wakeskaters of all the cable parks. I want answers Mr. Melvin.

Not hating on wakeskaters at all, I wakeboard, skate and surf. I snowboard too. I live in michigan and I am on a board close to 50 weeks a year.
The skater cutting in line question comes up on the wakeboarding forum every few months and I just wanted some insight.
I see SKATERS are the ones cutting 9 out of 10 times. I just want to know why SOME skates think it is ok to go to the head of the line EVERY time?

Wow this forum is dead, not one post in a week. Maybe wakeskaters are out riding instead of posting on the internet

Or they're hanging out on a wakeskating site. Maybe ask a wakeskater the next time you see them cut?

Hey E-snow. Thought you might find this interesting since you are a collector and all (not the board ;P
