I was just wondering how to go W2W on a skate? Is it the same idea as a wakeboard, or do you have ollie when you hit the wake? I am completely lost so if someone has any websites I could go to or if someone just has some advice please post it. Thanks a lot.

go down to the w2w and shuv it help, how do i, or getting air threads they all have a lot of good info on jumping w2w. that will be easier than posting it all again. But here are the basics.

cut hard
ollie at the top of the wake(dont stand tall like wakeboarding)
suck your front leg up, then your back leg
start pushing your legs down at the top of your jump.
stick the landing...or at least try to it will take some time.

You want to ollie. You don't have to, but for starters it will help.

Like skating it's all in the legs. Front foot pressure and back foot pressure.
When doing wake to wakes the key is to lift your front foot up and bring your legs up to your body somewhat. By lifting your front foot and legs (front foot first) you will allow the board to rise off the wake and stay underneath you while in the air. From there its all about just staying in position and sticking the landing.

ha ha - I didn't see your post Jason.
You're on it.

Jason, I just saw you're profile. We had an 86' Nauti when I was growing up in Lake Mary in the same color scheme as your ride. Good boats for sure.
You've been skating religiously lately - got any pics?

wakeguru yeah I really like the boat just does not have much room for a bunch of ppl. But thats cool more riding time for me right...I have basically hung up the wakeboard for the skate these days..I just have so much fun on it. I do have some pics I will post them as soon as I get them off the camera, and I got my ollie body varial on video so I will try and post it soon, and I will try to get my shuvit on vid also to post. Working on 1 wake 180s now...You?

no problem Aaron...anytime, goodluck with it. If you have a place to get Snap it really helped me out on some body position, which foot to jump off of, and stuff like that.

I know a lot of guys here in FL and that's all they ride is the skate.
I divide my time, but am hooked for sure.

isn't it a good feeling when you stomp that first one...problem is on our boat the rule is gotta land 2 in a day before you can claim it...that makes it tuff. Good job Tim.

Luke- you gotta get all you're weight over your toes on the landing. It helped me to grab mute with my arm in front of my front leg. Also you have to get the handle behind you're hip on the landing.
I think the gotta land 2 rule is pretty standard, we use that in our boats too.

the way we look at it is anybody can get lucky and do it once...but if you can do it twice it's yours. Most of the time if somebody puts a leg on a trick we will not let them back in until they pull it again...

sweet Tim...congrats. I finally pulled a solid W2W grab yesterday(twice). I had pulled a few slap grabs, but finally got a good hand full.
