Wakeboarding is one of the most appreciated water sports because you can practice wherever and whenever you want. The feeling of boarding the wake of a boat looking to find the right point of your body to avoid falling into the water can be compared with few things in life. Imagine yourself doing wake and strike another line in your list of pending adventures. Let’s start!
1. You do not need waves
The wakeboard board slides on the infinite wave that creates the boat with which you go out to carry out the activity. That's why it lasts as long as you want because it only ends when the boat stops. So you do not have to be aware of the conditions of the sea, no matter how calm the waters are, your session is assured. Oh! And for the same reason you can also practice it in a reservoir without having to travel to the coast.
2. It is suitable for all ages
There is an initiation wakeboard session, so simple that you can start these courses with children from 5 years old. It only takes an adult to be aware of them while they are in the table. Of course the older ones have it easy to start their journey in the wake with a first phase that is dedicated to achieving standing and staying. You will fall into the water a few times but each time you do it will be a new opportunity to get up and take another step to be an expert. We recommend that you enjoy each dip because it is part of the way.
3. Share experience and boat
You will need to rent a boat with an engine of at least 300 hp to test the wakeboard. The best thing is that you do not have to go alone, in addition to obviously the skipper, on the boat 3 or 4 more people will be able to accompany you. Your friends can divide the time of the wake session with you, since they are usually at least 1 hour. In this way while one rests another one is in the water. Keep in mind that it is not compulsory to do the activity to ride on the boat so that whoever wants to be by your side to take pictures or be a witness of how you have a great time, will be welcomed.
4. Improve your physique while having fun
Throughout this discipline, you will use almost all the muscles of the body. With the hands and the strength of the arms you will hold the palonnier, with the legs you will maintain the position and with the back you will work the balance to hold on the table. You will tone up all the areas without putting to much effort whilst laughing and trying new attempts to approach perfection as a wakeboarder.
5. Learn to communicate by signs
Wakeboard shares its own language by signing with other drag sports. Keep in mind that you will have to tell the ship's owner if you want it to go faster, stop or give you a break. Adding the noise of the engine to the rumor of the water and your distance with this professional is difficult to hear and it is not a matter of shouting as in the market. So that you don’t need to scream, they will give you some basic symbols that you will do with your hands so that at a glance the skipper knows what you need.
When is it most appropriate to plan your wakeboarding trip?
Actually, the wake can be done almost during the whole year, it only depends on how “shivery” you are. Summer will be more appealing to navigate because of the heat. However, autumn and spring can be very interesting seasons because you will find beaches and reservoirs without swimmers with which you have to always be careful.
