My husband bought me a wakeskate for Christmas. I have skiied most of my life and wakeboarded the past 5 summers. I love playing on the water. I have had 4 knee surgeries and he thought the skate may be a little better on the knees that the wakeboard. I have never wakeskated, so I would appreciate any info you can offer. Do you get up the same as you would on a wakeboard? what is a good boat speed to skate? where can I find some good instructional videos/advice? Thanks! Ready for warm weather now!

jbcs16, Lots of info if you search wakeskating.com. You get up pretty much the same as on a wakeboard, just have to be a little more careful to make sure the board sticks to your feet. May take you a few tries but if you're comfortable on the water you'll be good.

Skate at 20 mph or so. Don't do a split with that bad knee. Try "Snap" for a very good through instructional video.
