What is wakeboarding?
Wakeboarding evolved from waterskiing – the once popular form of skiing on water. Today, instead of using skies, a board is used, like a surf board. During the session, the person stands on the waterboard and is pulled by a boat. All that is required is that the person can balance the board and go along for the ride. The feeling is sort like riding a large skateboard – but there’s no need to worry about falling over – the only thing you need to worry about is getting wet.
Where can one go for wakeboarding?
Wakeboarding can be performed anywhere. Be it a large lake, river or the ocean, the only condition is that there should be plenty of room for the jet ski or the boat pulling you to safely maneuver, there should be no other boats or vessels in the water that can pose a risk for the surfer and the boat.
