Wakesurf- A Variant Of Wakeboarding Without The Rope

Wakesurf is a variant of the sport of wakeboarding. The primary distinction between wakesurf and wakeboarding is that there is no rope involved in the former. As you all know, the rope or the cable plays a very important role in the sport of wakeboarding. However, this rope is practically absent as far as wakesurf is concerned.

How does a person find propulsion in the absence of a rope? The individual is towed by the motor boat for a short distance. He or she is attached to the motorboat with the help of the rope for a short distance. However, once the individual gathers momentum, the rope is released and the individual surfs the wake on his or her own. The most obvious question is- Is it possible to surf the wake without any other form of propulsion? The answer is obviously- yes.

The person who surfs the ocean makes use of the waves to move forward. This enables him or her to surf the waves without any other form of propulsion. However, it is impossible to find waves on lakes. That is the reason why motorboats are used to create wakes to replicates the wave that is found in the ocean. The person then proceeds to surf the wake without the assistance of the boat. The individual uses the aerodynamics of the wake to keep moving. Of course, sooner or later, the momentum of the person is lost and he or she has to start all over again. However, depending on the choice of the motorboat and the choice of the wakesurf board, you can keep moving for a long period of time.

Unlike wakeboarding, the choice of the motor boat becomes very important in wakesurf. The rear side of the boat is often weighed down with ballast, lead, sand or even people. The excess weight in the backside forces the boat downwards into the water and this leads to the creation of a strong wake. Since the person surfs the wake at a distance of not more than five feet from the boat, he or she is in a position to keep moving for a long period of time.

The proximity of the individual towards the boat creates a serious safety risk. Making user of any ordinary motorboat is not acceptable because most of the boats have an outward or inward outward motor. The risk of the person being pulled into the propellers is very high. This can lead to serious injury to the wakesurfer. To ensure this problem does not arise, only those boats that have an inward motor should be used for the sport of wakesurf. No other motorboat must be used.

The sport may be a variant of wakeboarding. However, the absence of the rope and the close distance between the individual and the boat makes it a completely different sport. The tricks, techniques and the stance involved in the sport are totally different as compared to wakeboarding. Further, the individual has to focus a lot on being mobile for as long as possible. In this sport, one cannot take motion for granted and one cannot simply focus on coming up with the most outrageous tricks when riding the wake. A trick that stalls your momentum will require you to start all over again.
