Choosing the right WakeSurf Board
Wakesurfers span a wide array of shapes in order to accomodate for different riding styles and ability levels. Wakesurfers are measured in feet and inches like surfboards. There are no strict length recommendations. Below are guidelines for choosing a bigger or smaller wakesurfer.
Have more surface area and more float, which means they work well for heavier riders. If you are riding behind a boat that throws a smaller wake, choose a bigger board. Larger wakesurfers move more slowly through the water and are easier for beginners to learn on. Are more maneuverable, spry and faster on the wave. These are an excellent choice for more advanced riders and lighter weight riders. Big wakes will support use of a smaller wakesurfer.
Wakesurf board shapes come from the surf / skimboard worlds, and fall into 3 general categories:
This is the most common and versatile wakesurf board shape, reminiscent of surf shortboards, but in a smaller package. These boards come in a wide variety of materials, lengths, and configurations. Just what you might imagine: a mix between surf and skim. There are a huge variety of hybrid shapes, but skim style shapes equipped with surf fins and surf style shapes with smaller skim fins fall into this category, too. The goal of these boards is to combine the playfulness of a skim board with the power of a surf board.
Skim style surfers are usually shorter, thinner and are often equipped with fewer fins for a fast, ultra-playful "skim" style feel.
