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
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).
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.
