Hello all.

Has someone ever tried to wakeskate on a regular skateboard without the wheels?

Cause i think it would be verry cool on such a small board :-)

How about putting some trucks & wheels on a wakeskate?

Dustin - if you've tried that, you should check into trying a snowskate (I believe that's what it's called). It basically looks like 2 skateboard decks stacked on top of each other with a few inches in between the two. You just stand on it. Very hard to control, I'm told, but I guess a blast. Most mountains out here don't allow them, but I did see 3 guys using them at Copper Mtn last year and it was pretty radical! this is like the ones i saw: http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A9G_Rq06MLZF_3kAoHajzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTA4NDgyNWN 0BHNlYwNwcm9m/SIG=14c0510ld/EXP=1169654202/**http%3A//www.bluetomato.at/magazin/stories/stories.php%3Flink=1%26jahr=2003%26ereignis=bos_ka prun_event%26datei=index.html and here's a different type: http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A9G_Rq.bMLZFre8A9_SjzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTA4NDgyNWN 0BHNlYwNwcm9m/SIG=12r67b8s2/EXP=1169654299/**http%3A//www.gadgetblog.it/post/231/railz-snowskate-skateboard-sulla-neve

iv been pulled behind a boat on a skate deck. you need a lot of speed to stay up, feels like slalom skiing

Tried it the other week, the board was too small for me. Nearly got up on it but I gave up after about 10 attempts.

I wakeskated a lunch tray before. I was a submarine for a bit until i got enough speed to come out of the water. I rode for about 10 seconds until the tray cracked and sank out from under me, haha.
