Thought I might give wakeskating a try. Seen people do it at the cable lakes and coule be somthing fun to mess around with vs wakeboarding all day. My first question is what kind of shoes do I need? I have some old DCs that I used to skate in..they are pretty phat and I would imagine they are heavy but they prolly like any other skate shoe. Also what size board should I look into getting I am like 5'10" 165lbs. I was thinking prolly some sort of concave board, not sure what kind. Thanks for the input :-)

Shoes? Something light that won't soak up a ton of water, and dry fast in the sun. I've been using some old indoor soccer shoes that work perfect, but going to use Reef Byerlys this year.

Board? I was told to go big to help with balance and ollies. I'm 5'5" and 150+ and I started on a 116 Grubb. Liked it, but needing to go smaller to help with board control for lip tricks, so I'm going to a 107 Byerly or 40 Cassette. I would hook up with a good local shop and see about a demo or rental and try a few different sizes and styles (wood or molded, concave or flat, foam or grip tape). I went with the molded because it's lighter and more buoyant, and super concaved.

Pickup Snap & Sfumato on DVD and you will be hooked!!!
