you did great for someone that's never rode one, and without shoes no less.

Yeah, i don't know many people who skate. I had a hard core crew of about 4 guys, but they've all moved away, so i'm the last one standing. We could get pretty rad for a while. I've pulled off a wake to wake big spin and shuv before, but now just getting up and riding around makes me sore! what a drag it is getting old...

But it is a nice change of pace when the water is right and I want to mix things up.
what's your height/weight. I prefer the longer boards too, being about 6'2.

wake to wake jumps on a skate are something else. i didn't attempt any my first time out this year. i've eaten it pretty hard before trying wake to wake tricks, and that's not gonna help somebody my age get to work on monday. especially behind a loaded up wake boat. pulling hard into a wake that size on a skate will make ya think! it'll make boarding seem a lot easier though...

Picked one up from a friend a while ago. My friends like it, but I'm still a little leary after an epic fall. Was running a narrow channel behind the boat, came to the end and the boat needed to turn around in a narrow area. I swung to the outside hoping to get a slingshot, and it worked too well! Came around super fast, stuck the nose and did an epic faceplant. That was the last time I rode it, haha!

I have been wakeskating for quite a while now. The freedom of not being strapped in is awesome.
