About wakeboarding

Wakeboarding is a surface water sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water. The wakeboard is a small, mostly rectangular, thin board with very little displacement and shoe-like bindings mounted to it. It was developed from a combination of water skiing, snowboarding, and surfing techniques.

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,[1][2] winches, and personal water craft.

History

Wakeboarding, which was initially called skurfing, emerged in the late 1970s after the approach of skiboarding (now snowboarding).

wakeboarding artworkSkurfing is a game that has numerous roots yet is said to be made in Australia and New Zealand with bindingless hand-formed sheets outlined particularly for towing[citation needed] A ‘skurf board’ was loaned to Jeff Darby and companions in Queensland, Australia, who began to make their own particular and who later interacted with Tony Finn who was to later deliver their image “Skurfer” under royalty.[citation needed] On the opposite side of the world in 1983, Howard Jacobs made a few wakeboards by mounting windsurfing foot straps and fractional hydroslide cushions on some littler surfboards that he had molded; by 1984, he was tossing reverse somersaults on the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida.[citation needed]
