Post Wakeboarding is a surface water sport
Wakeboarding is a surface water sport in which a rider stands atop a wakeboard, similar to a snowboard, and is pulled across the water by a boat or cable winch. The speed of the boat usually varies between eighteen and twenty four miles per hour.

Similar to skiing, the wakeboard is a single platform in which the rider uses the edges to maneuver back and forth across of the wake of the boat. Wakeboarding has found itself a home in the world of extreme sports because of the speed of the sport and the number of tricks that can be performed when the rider launches across the wake.

The wakeboard itself is very light and usually is made of foam mixed with resin. The outside of the wakeboard is coated in fiberglass. Extreme sports enthusiasts like the lightness of the wakeboard because it can be used to perform aerials and other tricks that heavier boards would make cumbersome.

The board comes with metal peg hole in which fins and bindings can be attached. The wholes run from the tip of the board to the back of the board so that the bindings can be adjusted for the individual rider or fins can be attached so that the rider can get more stability or cut during their ride.

Post Re: Wakeboarding is a surface water sport
Wakeboarding is a surface water sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water. It was developed from a combination of water skiing, snow boarding and surfing techniques.
The rider is usually towed behind a motorboat, typically at speeds of 17–24 miles per hour, depending on the water conditions, board size, rider's weight, type of tricks, and rider's comfort speed. This speed could also depend on the year, make, and model of the boat because some boats, which are not designed for wakeboarding, create a different size wake which the rider may not feel comfortable with. But a wakeboarder can also be towed by other means, including closed-course cable systems, winches, personal water craft, trucks/cars, and all-terrain vehicles.
