I've been skateboarding for like 7 or so years on and off. I can wakeboard a little but aren't very good at all. how hard is wakeskating? does anybody wakeskate and skateboard? how much of a difference is it? i can also waterski very well.

Best name ever.

A lot of of used to skateboard, but we are afraid of concrete so we quit and splash around in the water with each other and play marco polo in between sets.

You will love wakeskating.

icanskateboard.caniwksk8?, Wakeskating is really fun. If you are good at skiing and can wakeboard and skateboard like you say, wakeskating will come natural to you.

icanskateboard.caniwksk8?, It's the simple things in wakeskating that are the most fun. Lipslides on the wake, pop shuvs in the flats, just messing around, carving/slayshing... learning it all and getting comfortable is a really satisfying "journey". Enjoy it.

And the better you are at Marco Polo, the easier wakeskating will be. As long as you don't open your eyes underwater because that's just cheating.

icanskateboard.caniwksk8?, it's hard if you try comparing it to skateboarding like 80% of wakeskaters. Just think of it as a new experience and a new hobby, have fun learning the basics and just splash around with your friends, no homo.

It's not skateboarding and it's not wakeboarding, it's wakeskating. Knowing how to skateboard is just going to jump start your progression. Knowing how to wakeboard is just going to make wakeskating feel like learning to ride a bike without training wheels.


Cool

Ya, I am so excited to try it, and I know when I first try it I'm going to be hooked on it. I just see videos of people doing some crazy shizzle, and I just want to do it so bad.

Up at school everyone used to flood a McDonalds that was next to the main strip of clubs/bars once everything shut down for the night. I saw a drunk blind kid play marco polo to find a table of his friends.
