Wakeboarding Information

Wakeboarding is a surface water sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water. It was developed from a combination of water skiing, snow boarding and surfing techniques.

The rider is usually towed behind a motorboat; typically at speeds of 18–24 miles per hour depending on the water conditions, board size, rider's weight, and rider's comfort speed. But wakeboarding can also be performed with a variety of media including closed-course cables, winches, PWCs, and ATVs.

Boards are buoyant with the core usually made up of foam or honeycomb mixed with resin and coated with fibreglass. Metal screws are inserted to attach bindings and fins. The most popular wakeboards are Ronix, CWB, O'Brien, Hyperlite, Liquidforce, O'Neill, Ripcurl, Gator, Byerly and Slingshot.
