So i find myself limited to what im able to do on the wakesurf board and have looked at 2 different surfskate boards but seems it hasn't become very popular. Has anyone ridin the trick boardz surfskate or placebo surfskate. I realy like the looks of the placobo one but it runs for $550 and by the time it got shipped to canada i think its more then i wanna spend. Not sure how a wakeskate would work for surfing but im gonna try tommorow. Share your thoughts on skatesurfing Rockon.gif

Here's a vid surfskating

What board are you on now?

wakeskate won't work (well). If you're looking to add some tricks to your bag, then a broadcast would be fine and it's a "normal" price. It's also a function of wake and you'll notice that that guy was behind a very well-weighted centurion.

That surf skate thing looks just like some of the skim style wakesurf boards.

I saw the surfskate up close last year at a surf competition, and talked with Larry, the guy who designed them. I didn't get to ride it, but he rode it behind the boat and I thought it was cool. He was slashing and spinning that thing pretty good. If you're into the skate or skim-style tricks like spins and shuvs, etc, then it might be the board for you.

EDIT: Larry is from Trick Boardz. I thought they were the only ones with a surfskate, but apparently not now!

Is that a combination of a wakeskate and a surfboard?
