Thank you to those who posted. I had the best time! I didn't get up my 1st time but got up after that. I tried the feet on top of the board start and it worked great. Wakeskating is so much fun and I learned right away that you don't edge on the wakeskate the same way you do on a wakeboard. The superman-bellyflop was a good reminder of that.
Now I want to buy my 1st wakeskate because I had so much fun and want to learn more. The wakeskate I got to ride was the 2006 LF Melissa 41. Thanks again Maven, Malibu Rocky, and Wintersport for giving me the opportunity to try wakeskating.
