  • 1. Top Ten Factsabout Wakeboarding
  • 2. 1. Wakeboarding was first introduced in the 1980s. Originally, it had many versions such s “skurfing” from Scotland, “skurf board” in Queensland Australia, and later the names SSS, “Wake-snake”, and “surf ski” from the US.
  • 3. 2. The name “wakeboarding” was invented by Paul Frasser. He is also the one who introduced the concept and design along with his brother Murray and a Pro snowboarder.
  • 4. 3. The World Skiboard Association was established in 1989 and it was in Island of Kauai, Hawaii that the first World Skiboard Championships was held.
  • 5. 4. Wakeboarding competition began popping up in the early 1990s until it was added as a competitive sport in X Games II. Later on, the World Skiboard Association was re-named to now the World Wakeboard Association (WWA).
  • 6. 5. Wakeboarding was arranged by the International Waterski and Wakeboard Federation (IWWF)and was officially made part of the World Games in 2005.
  • 7. 6. Wakeboarding was derived from the combination of snowboarding, surfing, and water skiing techniques.
  • 8. 7. Wake boarders are towed behind motorboats at top speeds of about 17-24 miles per hour. But this depends on the water condition, rider’s weight, size of the board, and the rider’s comfort speed.
  • 9. 8. Wakeboards are generally designed to be buoyant and are usually made of honeycomb, foam, combined with resin and coated with fibreglass. Bindings are attached thru metal screws. The configuration and positioning of fins and bindings are adjustable may vary depending on the rider’s preference.
  • 10. 9. The wake boarder is usually towed by a motorboat. But he can also be towed by other means such as closed-course cables, PWCs, trucks or cars, winches and ATVs.
  • 11. 10. In order to move or cut outside the wake, the rider uses edging techniques. Jumps are done by hitting the wake and launching the board into the air. The ability to ride the wakeboard is a challenge. Using edging techniques, riders are able to ride or cut the wake without falling or submerging into the waters.
