Wakesurf is the most recent addition to the towed water sports.  In wakeboarding, the rider is pulled by the boat via a tow rope while a wakesurfer only uses a tow rope to get them started on the wave. Once a wakesurfer is up and on the wake, they drop the rope and ride freely on the wave, much like ocean surfing. Only the energy of the wake and their own skill propels them forward.  Riders are closer to the boat than other disciplines, making it a more social discipline then the others, as the rider can easily talk to those on the boat.

With a high level of fun, and a low level of risk, wakesurfing is growing in popularity. And although you may not see spins and twists high in the air, don't be misled into thinking it takes low skill! 

There are three different styles of wakesurf boards: skim, surf, and hybrid.

Skim Style

A skim style board is popular for doing spins, airs, and skate inspired tricks behind the boat. If you are looking to get tricky surfing the endless wave, a skim board is the best option. Best suited for advanced riders only.
