What is wakesurfing?
Wakesurfing is a water sport in which a rider trails behind a boat, riding the boat's wake without being directly pulled by the boat. After getting up on the wake, typically by use of a tow rope, the wakesurfer drops the rope and surfs the wave produced by the boat.
What is the difference between wakesurfing and
Wakeboarding involves being towed behind a boat with a rope at speed while wake jumping and getting air. Wakesurfing involves actually surfing the wave created by the boat without a rope.
As its name implies, wakesurfing is closer to ocean surfing.
Compared to wakeboarding, wakesurfing is generally more mellow [gentler] and accessible to all. It’s more beginner-friendly and doesn’t require mirror-perfect water – a little chop is usually not a problem for surfing behind a boat.
All our boats are set for wakesurfing, with wakesurf boards and shorter tow ropes
Only some of our boats are equipped for wakeboarding as well, with specific wakeboard boards and longer tow ropes onboard.
Please check in the boat service description if it is set up for wakeboarding and wakesurfing or only wakesurfing.
Who can wakesurf?
If you can swim you can wakesurf! And you can wakesurf from 5 to 100 years old.
First timers are very much welcome on all our boats and locations.
Our captains will teach you how to get out of the water and onto the wake. Soon you will be surfing the wake ropeless and you will start carving.
Is wakesurfing safe?
Wakesurfing is very safe. When you wakesurf the boat speed is very low, under 20km/h and you are never too far from the boat. Moreover, our boat captains always keep an eye on you.
