Nick Taylor is one smooth operator. It’s not even fair how effortless he makes wakeskating look. People have probably watched Nick ride in videos or in person thinking wakeskting is super easy, only to find out how ridiculously technical it is when they step on a skate for the first time. Thanks to Nike 6.0 for the video; here’s their official write up.

“I’ve been water dancing for ’bout 5 years now,” says Nike 6.0’s Nick Taylor when asked how long he’s been wakeskating. And in those 5 short years, Nick has amassed a career that is the envy of riders everywhere. With a multitude of contest wins under his belt, banger film sections and trips to every corner of the globe, Nick has developed into one of the best water dancers in the game. We caught up with him down near his home in Florida to find out the secret to his success.
