My boat is 90% footin, but I do some slalom, and pull the nieces, nephews and my children on 2 skies and tubes, and waiting for the day I can get them to drop the skies also? :toast:

JB,

Can you add an "all of the above"?

I choose barefoot, but show ski stuff is a close second, then slalom as a distant third.

It wouldn't let me change it now. Maybe UMP can come to the rescue and tell me what to do or if it is possible.

I pull alot of different watersports also, but this is to post your favorite, or what you do most. I must say that I am surprised that there are not more barefooters and wakeboarders.

Definitely due to this particular group. Go to Wakeworld & you'll find more boarders than skiers. Go figure.

What I've been told by boat dealers is that the market is about 85-90% wakeboard and 10-15% ski these days. I've heard that from 3 different dealers in the Seattle area.

Slalom. But, when I get too tired for that & still want to play - Footin if the water is good, otherwise wakeboard or trick.

We wakeboard, kneeboard, ski 2 or 1, and keep trying to learn to Barefoot.

Slalom is first, with kneeboard and barefoot for second. If I have the energy barefoot, if I am half dead, get out the kneeboard. Don't see to many kneeboards anymore, but they are still fun.

Where does pulling Erkle through the slalom course while he is barefooting go? :D

SAY IT AIN'T SO !!! I can continue to live in denial if I so choose.

Barefoot & Slalom tied for #1 spot
Wakeboard in at #2

Teaching the kids takes over the #1 spot whenever the opportunity is there. The question is, can I encourage well-rounded watersports development and avoid total wakeboarding freakdom? Just want them to be multi-disciplined....

Footin on the calm morning water.....then once things start getting a little rough its time to get out the Sky Ski. If things calm down in the evening.....time for a little more barefoot action and maybe a slalom run before cranking up the lift one last time.

Slalom. Do a little footing and trick skiing on the weekends after I have taken my slalom sets and still want to play. If we ever get the jump ramp back in our lake I may start splitting my time between slalom and jump sets.

It looks like there are a lot of people that foot, but not as the sport of choice. Once I tried it, I was hooked and my skis, for the most part, collect dust. As long as the water is ok, just hand me the rope.
I'VE GOT THE NEED FOR SPEED! :firejump:

Barefooting is on the list of things to learn.

I am a wakeskater by daylight hours, and a wakesurfer under the halogens. It has been quite a while since I have been strapped to any type of board/ski.

What is the difference? Just the size of the board? Why different day or night. Excuse my ignorance, but these are new sports to me. Have seen it out on the river but have not tried it yet. Looks like fun!

Wakeskating is kind of like wakeboarding without bindings (I know there is a lot more to it than that, but...).

Wakesurfing is just that, you surf the wake that your boat makes. I think most people get up with a rope then, once they are surfing, toss the handle back to the boat.

As far as the poll, I'm slalom only now. Haven't been barefoot in about 5 years, no wakeboard in 3 or 4 years (except with a pumpkin on my head last halloween), gave up kneeboard 15+ years ago. I ski on combos about once every other year.

Barefooting is on the list of things to learn.Be my guest and com'on down to this ... it's way more conducive for higher barefoot learning excelaration.
Did I mention - Winter Haven, Fla.

I will have to take you up on that. I have to go the the Redneck Riveria this weekend for a Bachelor Party. Look out LaVela a bunch of overweight, late 20's early 30 something are on their way.

HB and UMP pull coolers, cause they are too big to fit in the boat!

Just curious…if you start off with two skies and then jump out of ‘em, does it fall under the two ski category or the barefoot category? ;)
