🙉 What is Wakeboarding?
Don't worry, you aren't the first person to want to ask this! I imagine from looking at the photos you'll get a better idea, but wakeboarding is like waterskiing, expect on a single board like a snowboard.
You are pulled along by either a cable system or boat, once you're up and riding you can learn tricks and build up to jumps off obstacles. It's kinda like snowboarding or skateboarding on water!
Check out our blog on why learning to Wakeboard on a 2.0 cable system is AMAZING!
Wakeboarding is great for all fitness and strength levels! You don't need to have crazy good upper body strength to do it, relax and go with it.
If you snowboard, skateboard or have surfed before, you'll find the board skills pretty similar. Don't worry if you've had no previous experience, check out our 5 Reasons to Learn blog post!
