Best Wakesurf Boat

January 19, 2014

Have you ever heard about wakesurfing? Wakesurfing uses a board that has some surfboard and some wakeskate influences. Essentially you are able to surf on the wake created by the boat without holding onto a rope of any kind! It has been out for a few years now and is really growing in popularity. If you ever get the opportunity to do it, definitely give it a shot. It’s much more relaxing and low impact compared to wakeboarding, as the speeds are around 12 mph. If you fall, you won’t get hurt.

The biggest part about an enjoyable wakesurf experience isn’t necessarily the skill level of the rider, but the quality of the wake that you are surfing on. First and foremost only surf behind an inboard boat! Losing a body part in the prop will surely ruin everyone’s session. I have surfed behind several wakeboard boats with built in ballasts, and they do throw a nice wake that is surfable. However the best wake I have surfed was on actually a ski nautique with a wedge and loaded up with two fat sacks. The nice thing about the fat sacks is that you are able to load them up on one side of the boat to really shape the wake whereas often on a boat with a ballast you can’t load up on one side. 

You can even drink beers and wakesurf at the same time – talk about relaxing! Happy Surfing!
