By using our exclusive, easy-to-use Wakesurf Selection Guide, with two simple questions, we can narrow the results to just a few options.
Wakesurfing has quickly become the fastest-growing watersport. Experience the excitement: riders trail behind a boat, riding the boat’s wake without directly being pulled by the boat. As you venture out on the water, riders will use a tow rope to get up on the wake, but then the rope is dropped, and wakesurfers ride the steep face just below a wave’s peak. It is just like surfing.
Leading brands such as Hyperlite, Liquid Force, and Phase 5 offer boards for the two different styles of riding: skim-style or surf-style. Another point to weigh in when selecting your wakesurf board is that each board style is specifically configured for different wave sizes. Up until recently, wake surfing has been possible only behind inboard or v-drive boats. Now, Volvo/Penta offers forward drives that have impacted runabout brands such as Cobalt, Chaparral, Regal, and Sea Ray, to actually construct dedicated surf boats. Not looking for a surf boat, but want to wakesurf? Don’t worry! Wholesale Marine stocks ballasts from Fat Sac that add more weight to boats help to build bigger waves.
Skim vs. Surf-Style Boards
Skim-style surfboards like the Hyperlite Hi Fi, or Byerly Action, are designed for boats that throw larger wakes. These lightning-fast boards are ideal for 360s, 720s, or more traditional surfboard tricks.
Surf-style Boards like the Hyperlite Quad, or Liquid Force POD, are engineered on the thicker side and offer greater buoyancy as well as push down the wave. These boards are easy to ride, making carve surfing attainable regardless of skill level. The Surf-style boards also allow riders to catch air, then land back into the wake.
Original Hybrid Boards options include Liquid Force Fish, Hyperlite Shim, or Hyperlite Broadcast. These boards are designed with a wakeboard style construction, are great behind any boat, and are great for beginner and advanced level riders.
