Take the smooth flow of surfing, mix in some airtime and you have Wakesurfing. One of the most fun activities you can do behind a boat. Easy to learn and an infinite range to expand and progress. From first time to expert rider we have all the gear to get your riding. We All Ride Here!
FIRST TIME HITTING THE WATER
So it's time to get up and surf!
Sit in the water with your heels on the edge of the board, toes pointing towards the sky and relax.
As the board begins to move, let your knees come into your chest as you dig in on your heels.
Keep your knees bent until the board flips up to your feet and your weight is over the board.
Stand up gently, planting your heels on the board and ride away.
The best advice for riders new to wakesurfing is to relax and let the boat do the work. Getting started is all about your setup, and patience. When you’re fully over the board and ready, you can gently stand up. Once you feel in control you can drop the rope and surf. Don't rush, have fun and always stay safe with a life jacket.
CHOOSING THE GEAR
Of course, you’ll need a boat, but what else do you need to go wakesurfing? Only A few things: you’ll need a proper wakesurf board, a wakesurf rope, and perhaps most important, an appropriately sized life jacket.
Choosing a light board set for your kids weight and height will make learning a lot easier. Also consider a Surf style for more wave control and a Skim style for a more playful experience.
Changing the way you weight your feet helps you to control your speed while wakesurfing. In essence, your front foot becomes your gas pedal. So let's speed up and look at some of the amazing Adult boards. Skim / Surf choose what fits your ride style and hit that water.
Once you are comfortably surfing, with a consistently slacked line, it’s time to toss the rope. Either throw the rope directly back into the boat, or across to the other side of the wave so that you don’t get caught up. It’s helpful to have someone on the boat managing the slack in your rope as you get a feel for moving around on the wave.
Suns out and you may want to show off that summer body, however opting for some more coverage will help to keep you protected. New wakesurfers, will likely spend more time in the water; so choosing a comfortable fitting Coast Guard Approved life jacket will help in all areas. Not only do life jackets keep you afloat, but they’ll also offer some protection when you fall.
