Thoughts on home wakeskates and other custom wakeskates. Considering hetting a home wakeskate cause they look sick.

Home skates are fantastic. Great construction and its nice being able to pick your ideal rocker line/weight. With that said, just know they are one off boards and handbuilt so expect a wait time.

Here is a thread on wakeskating.com about them with rider reviews.

I have one that I absolutely love. The customer service sucks though and I was lied to throughout the process. It took me 5 months to finally get it

I agree with Wakemitch.

It took me 6 months to get my skate, with a serious lack of communication, to discover it was not the board I had ordered. Its been another 6 months and I'm not holding my breath. Having said that, the skate is built well, the graphics are great, and it has the potential to be a great company to support.

If you have lots of patience, money to burn, more patience, a bunch of other boards to ride, and patience, then you might want to consider.

We make our own - (well actually my brother made mine ) It's super fun, creative and in my case, it's the best deck I've ever ridden. Mine is VERY simple, but a little shorter & wider. There's something about making & riding your own stuff!

Reddog78,
Did you really buy one? How were you able to do that?

I love that you said two weeks ago. I know people that waited almost years.

Please, this is not a bash, just a realistic warning. Many people have struggled with Home and Dieter coming through as he has said. Hes a good guy, means well, but taking people's hard earned money and not delivering or communicating at all is wrong. I am blown away he is taking money for new boards.

PM me if you have any other questions.
