Wakeboarding

Wakeboarding is a high-octane water sport that involves skimming across water and requires a combination of the techniques used in water-skiing, surfing and snowboarding. When wake boarding you are towed behind a motorboat, typically at speeds of 18 to 24 miles per hour, attached to a board.

Wake boards can vary in shapes and sizes, but generally are thin rectangular boards with bindings for the rider to insert their feet into. They are made up of either foam, honeycomb or wood depending on the budget and skill of the rider. Wakeboarders hold onto a handle attached to the boat and ride the wake whilst enjoying the wind and spray in their face. Alternatively, wakeboarding can also be done on a cable tow around a lake, using the same techniques and equipment.

Beginner wakeboarders tend to concentrate on getting up, and staying up whilst seasoned wakeboarders use the wake of the boat or jet-ski to perform tricks and jumps.  Advanced boarders can also use obstacles and ramps within the water to launch off and practise flips and twists.

Looks can be deceiving and it is not as tricky to master as it may first appear. Don’t be disheartened if you encounter several wipe-outs on your first few attempts, it takes practice and balance to begin with but once up on your feet you’ll be a pro in no time.

Wakeboarding is highly accessible to all and can be performed on any large body of water behind a jet-ski, boat or cable and all that matters is that there is enough room for a reasonable tow. This activity is a great excuse to get outside and enjoy a summer’s day and is a great source of thrills no matter your age or experience. It doesn’t have to be a solo activity, take a group of friends out on the boat and catch up whilst taking it in turns at wake boarding. Find a venue near you below.
