I don't know if this particular association is the right one, but I do think that one is very necessary. Let's face it, wakeboarding and wakeskating are not the same. I think it would be best if wakeskating had their own governing body because wakeskaters have their own outlook for where wakeskating needs to go and this is just one way of taking it there. (via contests and just spreading the word. It's not the only way,but it's one way). Also, this single organization can focus on wakeskating and what the wakeskaters want, rather than the WWA or the AWA trying to have it under their umbrealla and maybe not focusing on it enough, or possibly making their own rules, as opposed to listening to the wakeskaters.
So, I do think one (a separate governing body) is very necessary, but it's important to have everyone's support before going off and trying to start something like this. And I'm not saying he did that, but he didn't speak to all of the riders that are currently pushing wakeskating.
