Getting Up
By: Dave Barousse

One of the first tasks of enjoying the great sport of wakeskating is learning how to get up. This is similar to getting up on a wakeboard and will be very easy if you already know how to get up on a wakeboard. In this instructional, we will explain two different methods of getting up on a wakeskate. The reason for two methods is to show different ways that may be more comfortable for all levels of riders. Either method can be used by riders of all skill levels.

Method One - Board On Water
Getting up using the board on water method enables you to lay back on the water and relax while the boat driver gets the boat situated before getting under way. It may seem awkward when reading this instructional, but once on the water, you will find that it is very simple and realxing.

    Method Two - Board Under Water
    The board under water method is used more by riders that are expereience wakeskaters or wakeboarders and requires a more balance while you are wating for the boat to get situated. You basically will stand on your board, but the board will be submerged under the water.
