DANG thats bad. Did anyone else pickup that One of the first wakeskates was in-fact a bi-level. Shocked thats awsome. Just goes to show what a couple of years can do.


One more thing. Jason if your reading this, i think i speak for all of us when I say thank you. I can honestly say that wakeskating has changed my life.

I used to be spun out on drugs really bad, Ive been arrested gone to rehab and when it was all said and done I found myself board again and So i started wakeskating to keep myself out of trouble. And well the rest is history, Now im doing way way way better then I was 2 yrs ago. Im married, i have a son, I wakeskate a ton, I have companys that believe in me (sattelyte, DSO and OneWest) I get to ride contest and travel a ton. I am so greatfull for all the things ive been blessed with..... anyway im rambling but thanks again.

EvanPark, Don't feel stupid, I don't know who he is either. Who is he? He is a radical pioneer, taking it way back. He got hooked on the feeling the way we did, except he had to make the board himself and try what worked. Mad respect to Jason, and respect to Pirate. Way to come clean matey, that one was from the heart.

I can't wait for the rest of this story, thanks Dave.

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaamn. Mad respect...

Evan, He was the first to make a business out of wakeskating, Fresh Water Traction. He made "grip" pads that you could put on your wakeboard to wakeskate. I'm sure electricsnow could give us more information on it...

Wakeskating IS The Messer... Don't feel stupid for not knowing who he is, just give credit as to where credit is long past due.

I'm so happy to see this is up on the site finally. Very Happy
