Wakeboarding is an extreme sport where athletes are dragged behind a high-powered speed boat on a supremely engineered board.
They then proceed to carve from left to right and back again, each time jumping to astonishing heights off the wake created by the boat.
It’s a fast and furious sport with a degree of danger sufficient to get the most discerning adrenaline junkie’s heart pumping after landing a big jump.
Like most professional board sports, over the years the designs have evolved with the manufacturing and precision of the boards themselves.
Today’s line up of boards are nothing short of stunning in their designs, all of which are vying for your undivided attention. There are so many different boards out there that we can really only show you a few of the best, but if you want more then there are plenty out there just waiting to be found.
What do you think? Have you seen any really stunning wakeboards ? Have you designed any yourself, or do you own any? Let us know in the comments below!
