How to wakeboard

Wakeboard equipment guide

Wakeboards: This is a single board with fixed bindings for each foot, standing sideways as on a skateboard. It can jump higher, turn faster, flip over and pull off harder than any other water sport board.

Wakeboard towers: These are cage like device which are joined to the middle of the boat to give riders the height with its high rope hook.

Pylons: Pylon is a pole that extends up from the center of the boat on which the tow rope is attached. It balances the boat and prevents sliding.

Wakeboard ropes: The wakeboard ropes keep us attached to the back of the boat. Its ends are held by the boat and the rider.

Wakeboard handles: Handles are used by the riders to get grip. They are usually elliptical in design with a slight bend, smooth rubber surface and small fingertip grip.

Wakeboard racks: Racks are attached to the tower in order to hold the boards to get them out of the way.

Wakeboard fins: This is a turning device to keep the wakeboard moving in the steered direction. Lack of fins makes the movement uncontrollable.
