Derived from and very similar to wakeboarding, wakeskating involves riding on a fibreglass board across the sea while being towed by a speedboat. The main difference between wakeboarding and wakeskating is than the wakeskate boards do not have any foot bindings. Clearly this makes it more challenging to stay on the board while it is moving at high speed, but it also allows the wakeskater to perform a different array of tricks than those used by wakeboarders. There is a strong influence from skateboarding which has led to a number of moves being virtually the same. .
