To the untrained eye the differences between a wakeskate and a wakeboard may not be immediately noticeable. This is because the boards used in these two sports are very similar. The primary differences are wakeskates are shorter in length than wakeboards, and wakeskates do not require bindings. A wakeboard also has a series of drilled holes necessary to attach the bindings to the board while a wakeskate has a slip resistant side instead of holes. This no skid surface is necessary because the rider is not attached to the board in any way.
