Wakeskating


(Video Link)


Wakestaking involves maneuvering a wakeboard over a skateboarding course. It appears that competitors are yanked along a tow line and must safely but acrobatically pass the obstacles. Here are highlights from a recent competition in Cologne, Germany. Link -via @Christopher Jobson

"Wakestaking involves maneuvering a wakeboard over a skateboarding course." That looks like a pool to me. It's hard to skateboard in water.

Aww is it sad that I liked the music? Granted, I wasn't focusing on listening to it.

Wakeskating is actually done using a wakeskate (it's like a wakeboard without bindings and the surface has more grip), it doesn't matter where. The video has highlights from both the wakeboarding and wakeskating parts of the competition.

Sigh...Neatorama.

Wakeskating does not involve a wakeboard whatsoever.

This video is just plain ol' wakeboarding using a wynch.

Wakeskating involves using a board with a top surface similar to a skateboard. You wear shoes, and you are not strapped to the board.

This is an example of wakeskating: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuCf_OT65fg
