Did you know?
Legend has it that Wakeboarding was invented in 1979 by Tony Finn in California; the 'skurfer' was born out of surfing frustration. When there were no waves, the surfers could get towed behind a loaded-up speedboat whose increased wake provided some surf-style relief. In those days, the lumbering 'skurfer' would be surfed on the wake, but as the years went by, lighter more manoeuvrable symmetrical boards were developed and the wake's role changed from wave to launch ramp. In the early nineties, the sport now known as 'wakeboarding' encompassed influences from snowboard and skate scene.
Wakeboarding is the fastest-growing board sport world-wide. Akin to snowboarding, the sport’s popularity is spreading like wildfire around the globe. Evolving from a combination of surfing, snowboarding, skating and waterskiing, wakeboarding is not only the world's fastest-growing water board sport but also the most accessible.
