THE WAKEBOARD AS A TRICK SKI
With the popularity of wakeboarding, it is often difficult to separate a youngster from the wakeboard to practice trick skiing. One solution is to remove the fins from the wakeboard and pretend it is a trick ski. Most water ski tournaments allow the wakeboard to be used as a trick ski provided the fins are removed. Because of the stability of a wakeboard, elementary single ski tricks such as the side slide are relatively easy and fun for youngsters without separating them from their beloved wakeboards. Shown below are typical single ski tricks using a wakeboard.
