      shammy,

      I always started like a wakeboard and used one hand to hold the wakeskate while the boat was put into gear. After that, pressure will keep it on your feet and you start just like a normal wakeboard. I dont remember boat speed much but I'm thinking it was around 18 or 20. Its been a while since I wakeskated since mine sank (yes my cassette skate SANK) in the bottom of lake guntersville.

                  Put the boat in gear and the pressure will hold the board on your feet. You can go as slow as 13 or 14 and still stay up. I learned that slow sppeds are the best way to learn. 18 is a good cruising speed. I have have some pics under my photos of me wake skating.
