How to Create and Ride the Perfect Wake


Calgary resident Adam Drybrough serves as an independent business strategy consultant. When he is not helping startup companies or guiding local real estate developers, Adam Drybrough can often be found wakeboarding.

Creating a good wake is the first key to fun wakeboarding. Boats need about 1,800 pounds of extra weight to produce a robust wake. This weight should be arranged so that it is largely on the rear of the boat and off to one side. 

This arrangement will make the boat lean to one side, which is ideal for wakeboarding. Boat drivers must remember that turning carefully is extra important when the boat is off balance, especially when a wakeboarder falls from the board. 

Once a large wake has been created, wakeboarders should focus on finding the sweet spot on that wake. Look for the trough about 5 feet behind the boat. Forgoing the rope entirely is possible in this section of the wake, and learning to stay within it by shifting body weight is good practice for any wakeboarder.
