You're supposed to wear shoes on any wake skate.

I know. Just feels wierd.

I put hydroturf or something similar on mine so I can ride it barefoot.
Pretty much only ride it when too worn out to wakeboard or barefoot.

Hmm didnt know that.. The only wakeskate I've ever been on was a hyperlite with a rubber tread on it. I assumed it was for no shoes

The EVA foam tops are still slippery without shoes. Sure, you can stand on it and ride it without shoes, but you'll have a hard time catching it during flip tricks. Also, you reeeeally don't want to be landing on it fin side up without shoes on your feet.

Gotcha.. I just ride the wakeskate for a laugh. usually when I'm to tired to wakeboard and just want to goof off, so I'll more than likely never be doing any flip tricks.

I'd still be careful. A fin will slice your arch no problem.
