At the dentist office last week I was looking threw the latest Water Ski mag. There is a photo sequence shot of a guy on a wakeskate edgeing in and hitting the wake and doing a raley he lands with out the wakeskate and starts barefooting. Pretty awesome IMO

You have to be going about 40 MPH to barefoot. Pretty fast for a wakeskate!

He is probably a barefoot jumper. look up barefoot jumping and see just how similar it is to doing a raley

Yes the guy looked like a Barefoot jumper. He had a barefoot suite on. Yes I was thinking the same thing 40mph is suoer fast for a wakeskate

That's badass.

Sure you were at the dentist...it's okay if you subscribe to WaterSki mag Grant.

You don't have to go 40MPH to barefoot. The speed depends on your body position and your weight. In show skiing we had 210 lb guys barefooting at 32MPH, which is still fast for a wakeskate.

David, thats hilarious!!
