The cool new sport of wakeboarding

has kids leaping, spinning and

catching some big air on lakes and in

coves all over the country.


Rapidly rising in popularity, the sport

appeals to anyone who loves extreme

excitement on the water.


WHAT IS WAKEBOARDING?


Basically, wakeboarding is the sport

of riding a short, wide board

somewhat like a surfboard while

being towed behind a motor boat.

Basically, wakeboarding is the sport

Wakeboarders fly over the water

while performing all sorts of

acrobatic maneuvers, constantly

thriving on the challenge of learning

new and more complex tricks each

time they head out on the water.


Basically, wakeboarding is the sport

of riding a short, wide board

somewhat like a surfboard while

being towed behind a motor boat.

Typically, the boat travels between

16 and 25 mph, with speed

determined by the rider’s weight

and comfort level as well as the

board size and the types of tricks

being performed.


Basically, wakeboarding is the sport

of riding a short, wide board

somewhat like a surfboard while

being towed behind a motor boat.

Wakeboards can also be towed

by personal water craft.


WHAT IS THE HISTORY

OF WAKEBOARDING?


A cool combination of

waterskiing, surfing and

snowboarding, wakeboarding

was originally called skurfing

and got started after the advent

of snowboarding.


The sport began in Australia and

New Zealand. It was renamed ski

boarding and took off around

the world, with the first World

Skiboard Championships held in

1989 in Kauai, Hawaii.


WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO

YOU NEED FOR WAKEBOARDING?


Although a regular runabout is fine

for wakeboarding, a true

wakeboarding boat has a

wakeboard tower made of stainless

steel or aluminum tubing.


This tower places the pull point

about seven feet off the surface of

the water, a high tow point that

makes it easier to jump and get

sufficient air for stunts and tricks.


Some modern wakeboarding boats

even have ballast tanks that

increase water displacement,

producing a bigger wake.


WHAT SORTS OF TRICKS DO

WAKEBOARDERS DO?


Wakeboarders can move outside

the wake or cut inward, with jumps

performed by riding up the wake

and launching into the air.


Popular tricks have lots of cool names

much like snowboarding maneuvers.

It’s fun to work toward progressing

from beginner to intermediate …


… and maybe even expert levels,

learning tricks with funky names

like fashion air, air raley, blind judge,

krypt, batwing and tantrum.


CAN YOU WAKEBOARD

WITHOUT A BOAT?


Basically, wakeboarding is the sport

of riding a short, wide board

somewhat like a surfboard while

being towed behind a motor boat.

Amazingly, there’s been a

system developed whereby fans

of this extreme sport can

perform wakeboarding tricks

without the expense of a boat.


Basically, wakeboarding is the sport

of riding a short, wide board

somewhat like a surfboard while

being towed behind a motor boat.

Wakeboarders use an overhead

cable-ski system consisting of a

series of towers, or masks,

surrounding a small lake.


Overhead cables rotate around

the lake with ski ropes attached

for pulling a rider or skier along

the wake.


Some wakeboarders, especially

beginners, prefer the system

because you can do all the tricks

you can do from a boat without

associated expenses.


Cable boarding is really green

too, as you can practice tricks all

day long without burning lots of

gas or dodging other boats on a

crowded lake.


WHERE CAN I WAKEBOARD?


Wakeboarding is a popular sport on

rivers, lakes and any relatively calm

body of water.


You can head out on a friend’s boat

or try the cool sport at a cable

wakeboarding facility.


Always remember to wear a

lifejacket and helmet and to have

two people in the boat, one to drive

and one to watch the boarder.


Many summer camps have

added wakeboarding to their list

of lively lakefront activities, and

some camps …


… even have dedicated programs

allowing kids to specialize in

wakeboarding and waterskiing.


Canadian Adventure Camp is a

coed overnight summer camp for

kids located on a beautiful private

island in the Wilderness Lakes

region of Temagami.


Founded in 1975, it provides

acclaimed programs to children

from around the world!
