Me and my sister were trying it this weekend and having fun. One of us would lay on the skate (foam top!! wouldnt recommend it on skate grip...) and hold onto the handles while getting pulled by the jetski.

At about 7mph it will start to plane and go nicely, then you start to get some enjoyable bumping at 13mph. We didnt make it past 16mph before either falling off or letting go in fear of a smack from the board.

never seen that but have seen the skate used to start footin. Just sit on it and lean way back when you start. Pretty much just like a knee board. I also saw a guy step off the skate and start footin. That was pretty sweet.

Tell me you were lying on your back…

I tried to sit down with my knees bent so my feet where at the nose and my butt towards the back, but it didn’t work.

We lay face down, with our chest leaning on the board a few inches from the nose. Which is why we let go after it starts bumping for fear of a major headache. Once its planing, you can even curl up yours legs and be completey our of the water.

Like Chad Sharpe on “Welcome” in the bonus on the broadcast. I tried it standing up on the landlock behind the waverunner… TOO CRAZY & FAST for me!!!
