The guy I bought my 23 lsv from included a bunch of equipment and one of the things is this wake skate:

Reading about wakeskating, I saw that you can either have real grip tape or foam grip tape. This board has foam grip tape. However it seems like all the videos I watch and all the threads I read are always only referring to real grip tape. Is foam grip tape considered sub par and has been phased out?

Is this wake skate decent enough to start learning on? I use to skate when I was younger, so I tried this last time I went out. I had no trouble getting up and riding. But when I tried to ollie, it just seems to not work ( I was barefoot, if that mattered). The tail would just goo into the water but never pop up.

Will it just take more practice, or is it because its an 'old school' board?
