What is Wakeboarding?

Searching on the web, I found the following short definition of wakeboarding:

1. wakeboard — a buoyant board (resembling a surfboard) that is used to ride over water while being pulled behind a motorboat

However, it’s not that simple! It never is…

Like water skiing, which most people are at least familiar with, the wakeboarder is towed behind a boat, or a cable skiing lift at a speed of about 18-24 mph. The main difference is that Instead of skis, the boarder uses a single board (like a snowboard) with bindings. Wakeboards are shorter in length than snowboards and slightly wider.  For more details about the sport’s beginnings and evolution, visit our wakeboard history page.
