joe, if you have a camcorder you can do exactly as JONb suggests. most camcorder analog outputs also function as inputs.
hook up your vcr to the analog connections of your mini-dv camcorder and then hook your mini-dv up to your computer via firewire. you should now be able to play your vhs tape and capture straight onto your hard disk.
and yes, a wakeboard film will easily fit on a vcd formatted cd. my friend put higher education on cd.
and yes you can use premiere 6.5.
