Wakeboarding is a surface water sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water. It was developed from a combination of water skiing, snow board and surfing techniques. The rider is usually towed behind a motor boat; typically at speeds of 18-24 miles per hour board and surfing techniques.And depend on the water conditions, board size, rider’s weight and rider’s comfort speed.
Using edging techniques, the rider can move outside of the wake or cut rapidly in toward the wake. Jumps are performed by hitting the wake and launching into the air. This can also be done by hitting a kicker (a jump).
There is also the slider (a rail bar) in which a rider approaches and rides along keeping his balance. Once a rider improves in the sport, he or she can progress to tricks high in the air. As the rope tightens the rider gains speed toward the wake.
When the rider goes airborne, the tightened rope launches him. While in the air the rider attempts to do tricks.
