I just picked up a wake skate and wondering what the technique is for getting up on them. How should you start? Any help would be great.

you hold the skate to ur feet, and hold on the the handle with the other hand. Have the driver put it in gear, so the board pushes up against your feet. Situate your feet on the board, and then tell the driver to HIT IT! Have fun.

nah, i think its easier to start on your stomach and try it like a surfboard. (;

get your friends to try it first and tell them that's the way you do it, it makes for an interesting day. bring a video camera so you can laugh at them later.

it may be easier to just rest your heels on the edge of the board. Then have the driver pull slowly, at this point the board will come up against your feet. Wala, now it's just like wakeboarding.

I forgot to mention that you should be laid back while your heels are resting.

getting up on one of these things is real tricky. it's like getting up on a wakeboard, but more difficult cuz of the lack of bindings. hold it on your feet with the one hand. make sure your feet are situated on each end of the board. next, hold the handle (duuuuh), when you feel comfy, tell your driver to hit it, and boom, you should get outta da watah. email me if you catch some huge-ass air.

haha yeah definitely try and vget your friends to get up like a surf board. i tried it for the hell of it and hit my face on the board like 4 times. it was hilarious. any way just rest your heels on the top and have th driver put it in gear and the board will pop back to your feet and then just go. its sweet. its easy too.

another way i picked up on getting up is put the board directly uderneath you and then stand up on the board in the water then let the board push up against water and you will be in your normail wakeboard position get the slack and your ready to go

The easiest way is to start off the dock,hold in your hand and when the boat takes off kick it in front of you and underneath your feet . The higher the dock the better
