One of the major decisions facing wakeskaters is whether they should purchase concave or flat wakeskates. A concave wakeskate is thinner in the middle with thicker portions on either end of the skate. Many wakeskaters who enjoy performing tricks prefer the concave style of wakeskate because it allows for more foot contact. However, concave wakeskates are significantly more expensive than flat boards. The two types of wakeskates perform similarly on flat stretches. Wakeskaters who do not perform tricks may opt for a flat board to avoid paying more for features they won't use.
