Wakeskate is an activity which requires very agile ankles and feet, much more so than on the wakeboard because there is nothing that holds your feet to the board. Just as on a skateboard, gymshoes are worn but the board itself is a little larger and the surface is covered in a special high-grip material to increase adherence.

Whether you use the wake of the boat or not, you can execute a variety of movements on the board just as if you were riding it down the street, with the difference that the surface is water, not tarmac. Equipment suppliers are as above.
