Oh, how I liked that deck. It was too small for me but it felt so much better than the 140 under my feet.

We did the same thing a couple years back! Works for off axis tricks too.

Where did you get the foam grips?

That Belmont/motive is a still my favorite board for learning new tricks. It's super consistent and predictable off the wake. I keep one in a 144 on the boat at all times.

Hey guys, besides learning raleys and such, which I agree this works like a charm, what other tricks have you guys learned using this method?

kerry-off axis spins
Old    Dan (hco)      Join Date: Jun 2006       06-15-2012, 12:51 PM Reply   
so for the off axis spins I am assuming that you make no attempt to keep the board under your feet?

@ dan, no.

Interesting. So basically just jump and spin. Makes sense. Anything to save the whiplash! I'll have to give this a shot.

Where do you get the grip for your feet? How did you make the raised section?
Old    Tommy (Readyaimfire)      Join Date: Jun 2012       06-26-2012, 12:00 AM Reply   
They are surfboard traction pads. They come with the raised sections.

Where did you get that foam from? I might be starting a wakeskate project in the near future and want to use foam. I can't find any that looks that sturdy.

These boards look like the mid 90's when everyone was hackin there old boards into make shift skates. Then Thomas saved us all. U guys are weird, just use a wakeskate.

I don't know about the wakeskates though. I feel like a wakeboard (without bindings) tracks better and more comparable for when you try the actual trick on your wakeboard (attached). However though I don't feel the need to put these traction pads on any of my boards. I just wear my wakeskate shoes and that seems to work fine?

wakeskates dont track nearly as well. and i use the traction pads so i can go directly to the wakeboard. plus i dont own a wakeskate or skate shoes. @jim thanks for your kind donation!!
