About the Sport

Water skiing and wakeboarding are surface water sports where an individual is pulled behind a boat or cable tow. It is both a recreational activity and a competitive sport although most people ride for fun and to keep fit.

You can participate by skiing on two skis, one ski, riding a wakeboard or a kneeboard, barefoot, or on a disc or other means of keeping afloat! You don’t even need to own a speed boat to take part, as many facilities have club boats or cable tows, making participation in this sport much more affordable.
