How To Choose A Wakesurf Board

Wake surfing typically involves slower speeds, making it more beginner-friendly, and it does not require perfectly calm water conditions. There are numerous wakesurf board options available, catering to different rider preferences, with variations in board length, shape, and style.

Skim style wakesurf boards are typically smaller in size, with less buoyancy and smaller fins, allowing for a more playful and agile experience on the water.

On the other hand, surf shape wakesurf boards are reminiscent of surf shortboards, with a directional shape and fish or square tail, and are usually larger in size and total volume.

These boards have a wide variety of material, length, and configuration options, often with multiple fins, providing riders with the ability to fine-tune their on-water experience by generating speed and power.
