What is Wakeboarding?

Wakeboarding is a surface water sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water.

It was developed from a combination of water skiing, surfing, and snowboarding.

The rider is strapped onto the wakeboard by the bindings/boots just like a snowboard and is usually towed behind a motorboat (18-25 mph).

A  wakeboarder can also be towed by other means, including a closed-course cable systems, winches, and personal watercrafts. There are many tricks, grinds, and acrobatic maneuvers that riders perform but it is a sport for all ages.
