I'm a fan of coconut water too. during skating, I use a mix of water and zero calorie vitamin water(containing electrolytes). sometimes just a packet of emergen-c in water (contains electrolytes and a mix of vits) - both a re low or zero calories drinks.

pre-skate I mix an emergen-c into fruit smoothie of: coconut water, ice, mixed fruits (banana,mango, pineapple, orange), and a little kefir to cream it up. I am not a fan of eating lots before working out so, a light smoothie for breakfast followed by real food post-skate.

there are tons of electrolyte drinks out there, just read labels, and steer clear of sugars and food colorings, and you 'll be fine.
