In this instructible i will show how to make the wake skate.
I did some research on the web using the following sites:
And following some links on those sites.
I decided on what I believe to be a two stage rocker with dimensions of the board being 1000mm in length 375mm width and 174 tip and tail width with an approximate 50mm rocker. I took an image off the web to scale up and copy.
Step 1: Cut Plywood.
Step 2: Clamp Ply in Your Jig.
As you can see I made clamps out of wood and bolts. I believe that it is quite a good method but if you have loads of clamps that will be fine too.

Step 3: Draw Your Design on the Glued Plywood.
You can see from the photos that the gluing process isn't perfect and thats why it is good to cut your ply a little bigger than your design.
Step 4: Cut Out Your Design.
Step 5: Final Shaping.
Step 6: Make Some Fins.
Make sure to resin the holes you drill in the board. Also counter sink the holes slightly.
With more research and help from a mate we uncovered this:
It seems its better to use Aluminium as fins. I will give this a go and update the 'ible.
Step 7: Fiber Glass Resin. YUK!
Read the instructions on the tub and coat. Use gloves!
All that is left is to put regular skate board grip tape on the top and it will be ready.
