Captured on Blue Lake, Ontario, Canada…This is my 15 year old grandson Brett, wake boarding on the water here. I was the photographer in the boat…
What is wakeboarding?
Wakeboarding was created from a combination of water-skiing, snow boarding and surfing techniques. As in water skiing, which most people are at least familiar with, the rider is towed behind a boat, or a cable skiing lift at a speed of about 18-24 mph. The main difference is that instead of skis, the boarder uses a single board (like a snowboard) with bindings. The boards are shorter in length that a snowboard (typically 130 – 147cm) and wider (up to 45cm) as well as being convex (tips 15 – 25cm) rather than concave as a snowboard.
One relatively new board sport – wakeboarding – originated from Orlando, Florida. This newest craze will surely attract sports fans and players alike. For fearless and fun-loving individuals, it is a greatway to experience life in another perspective.
