Hey everyone, so i've been wakeboarding in the summer and snowboarding/freestyle skiing in the winter and i recently saw a pair a twin tip water skis call wake skis, does anyone know anything about these things?
I have seen a video on them at Hyperlite dealer days last year and the guys on the video were doing some pretty sick stuff. These are going to be great for people that like jumping the wake on skis but not really into wakeboards. Definetly worth checking out or demo a pair.
I have been out on the HO wake skis before and they are actually really pretty easy to use. They are not hard to hit the wake with and go wake to wake. I dont even ski any more... still pretty easy. We had a guy that wake boards quite a bit out on them and he got up first time and loved them. Just takes a little getting used to the landings.
Also, a little birdie told me that HO is comming out with a binding that is built specifically for the wake skis. Way more supportive - pretty much a wakeboard binding with a ski plate.
