im thinkin about dropping wakeboarding and wakeskating all the time. this doesnt sound like that big of a deal, but every time i go to o-dub or on a nice boat with a big wake i wanna skate but everyone else is wakeboarding and i get put down for it. and today my friend calls me up to ride and so i go over there and i didnt bring my board i just brought my skate and when i got there he was like " im not pullin you wakeskatin. we wakeboard on this boat, dont come up here with a wakeskate" im sick of that sh_t. now that i can actually lay down some good tricks on the skate, i think its right to put the wakeboard in the shed so to speak... any comments or advice on what to do? im very self-conflicted

I dropped wakeboarding, it got to where i just couldn't ride a wakeboard anymore. My wakeboard is sitting in my closet collecting dust. I wakeskate at least 2 times a week. At first I took some crap from my dad when i was first starting out, but now that I'm doing tricks, he'd rather watch me wakeskate.

And that guy was an jerk. "We wakeboard on this boat". That's some ol bulljive right there. Eh I say just take your wakeskate up there and keep throwing down the shizzle you're doing, get him to try it.

Heh, I just remembered something.. you think your situation is bad? I'm the only one within about 30 mins that wakeskates, i took crap from some guy who does nothing but two ski and kneeboard. Even the guy that was heading the camp didn't like it, he said "You have to start at rock bottom wakeskating" but he'll teach a kid how to slalom or wakeboard in a second.

Morphine, i got him to wakeskate one day on my jet ski when his boat was broken and his first day he got shuvits, ollie 180, ollie bs 180, front lip 270 shuv out and 360 shuvits (which pissed me off cuz it took so long for me to be able to do them all) while we were riding you could tell he was having so much fun and hed get exited whenever hed land a new trick, but after that he went back to the same old act "wakeskatings gay" so i sed chickity china the chinese chicken it and went to the beach found a couple of my friends that skimboard good and took them out and taught them to wakeskate so now we ride like 4-5 times a week

I wakeboard more than I wakeskate just because I can W2W on my wakeboard and I can't ever do it on my skate, I suck at cutting. I love to skate though, I like them both the same, they both take a shitload of talent.

I don't wakeboard anymore either. What happened to you with your friend is why I talk so much about the need for wakeskating to separate before it gets any respect. It's funny that Ryan Lemons never wakeboarded before but according to KENTO, the best wakeskaters were once wakeboarders.
