This thread comes on the heels of Scott Byerly being rejuvenated with wakeboarding in WBM this month. I also saw a fellow rider (who only wake skates) actually get on a wakeboard last summer on a guys trip and had fun wakeboarding again.

Which are you?

- wakeboarded only
- wakeskate or die
- wakeboarder -> wakeskater
- wakeboarder -> wakeskater -> wakeboarder again
- wakeskater -> wakeboarder
- wakeskater -> wakeboarder -> wakeskating again
- wakeboarder possing as a wakeskater sometimes
- wakeskater possing as a wakeboarder but making it look good.
- Confused
- I am a WAKESURFER man

tuber --> kneeboarder --> skier --> wakeboarder

picked up a wakeskate and love the "slow motion" falls....but I don't plan on making the switch from boarding.

Hmmmm....

About '69 started skiing. About '71 slalom

About '78 or '79 made some wakeskates - fun, but never did to much with them.

1983 - got the first Skurfer.

2000 - first wakeboard comp

2001 - first wakeskate comp

2002 - started wakesurfing

2009 - rode wakesurf more than wakeboard, did not skate more than once.

I guess I am confused or suffer from old age....

Wakeboarder -> Kiteboarder

Following the boat got stale. Much better making your own lines and hitting some different conditions.

kneeboarder > wakeboarder > dabble in surf n' skate when frustrated, bored, or injured.

Cool profile pic JG.

I'm a strapper. Wakeskating doesn't do much for me.

waterskier-->slalom-->barefooter-->wakeboarder-->wakesurf-->wakeboarder again-->SKYSKIER!

*Any of the above now, depending on my mood and water conditions

Hey Karl, you learned to ski as a fetus...that's one better than Parks! :-)

I'll warm up with the skate, then strap in. Ride skate mainly for a few days when season starts to get my balance back.

Ski and slalom till 07, got wakeboarding a couple times behind my uncle's boat, my family got a boat the next year, and now its all wakeboarding unless I take a hard slam and want to screw around for a set (wakeskate raileys make fun crashes).

WAKEBOARD FOR LIFE!!!!!

Dave - I am just that old. I started skiing at the age of 5. Only Tony Finn and a few of his friends were wakeboarding before I was. I got a board off of the first production run. I got a lot of strange looks on the lake back then. I shortened the rope to just about wakesurf length - just behind the rooster tail.
