wakesurf

wakesurf

To ride on a short surfboard atop the wake created by a motorboat. The sport differs from wakeboarding in that the rider's feet are not strapped to the board, which is longer and narrower, and they typically ride without being towed by the boat once they are able remain upright. My cousin taught me how to wakesurf when we were out at the lake house last summer. It felt weird not having my feet strapped into to anything at first, but it was a lot more thrilling when I got the hang of it!

Wakesurfing always looked like fun, but I never had the patience learning how to balance on the board without holding on to anything.
