WELCOME TO OUR WAKEBOADING SPORTS PAGE!
Wakeboarding was first invented in Australia in the 1980's. It was originally named skurfing and used bindingless hand-shaped boards designed for towing.
In wakeboarding, the rider is fastened to a board and towed behind a motor boat at speeds of 30 miles per hour. The rider can ride the surface of the water, as well as perform wakeboarding tricks behind the boat.
Wakeboarding is essentially a combination of three sports: surfing, water skiing, and snowboarding.
Water skiing - The wakeboarder will essentially be skiing across the water, but using one board instead of two.
Surfing - The rider will be able to ride the waves on a single board, although they will be towed by a boat and have a rope to hold onto.
Snowboarding - The rider is using a single board to maneuver swiftly across the water, much like someone would on snow.
