So itís been a long time since I managed to get out wake skating due to having to be an adult. Finally after some time it looks like I can have my hobbies back again the only trouble I have is that I recently lost all my skates and gear after a flood. Looking around it does seem like skates are harder to get now days and by the looks of other topics on the message boards itís understandable I guess. All that being said Iím pretty pumped to get back into riding again and was going to start a thread for people like myself and anyone interested in finding new skates now days.

I have seen brands like Fatties, Quantum, Original Wakeskates, Virtue and Liquid Force (for the Tao) are around but do you guys have other recommendations for new skates now days?

Cheers guys

Hand made in the USA check out Grain or Leaf. They both have some videos of the production process I enjoyed.

Grain www.grainwakeskates.com I'm currently riding Grain it's my favorite board now. Their instagram showed some new boards dropping soon.

Leaf www.leafwakeskates.com cool options for a custom board (length, thickness, graphic). The kicktails are smaller and the thin ply boards flex, I'm just not used to that.

Watermonsters www.watermonsters.co just dropped some new boards for this year they always have top quality boards.
