Whether you are an expert skier looking for the next water sport to try, or just a first timer to the lake, the experts at WakeSurf NC will get you out on the water and having fun. Wakesurfing is really exciting and no prior experience is needed. It is an easy and safe way to enjoy being towed behind a boat. Surfing is something that both young and old can enjoy. You will still need to be of average physical condition.

With our expert team riders coaching you along you will be surfing the wave before you know it. The Surfer starts out in the water, holding the rope and planting their heels on the surf board. The boat starts to accelerate at a slow speed pulling the surfer up to a standing position. The boat will top out at 10-11 mph. Once the Surfer feels comfortable riding the wave and they find the “sweet spot” the surfer will toss the rope and ride the endless wave unassisted.

Once the surfer can control the board and has the hang of it they can ride up and down the wave creating bigger distance between them and the boat. WakeSurfing is fun for the entire family.
