Tried Wakesurfing?

Has anyone tried wakesurfing? It looks like a fun and leisurely sport. Boards are expensive though. Any opinions from those who have tried it?

It is a blast and a great way to end the day. If you want to save money, buy the board on e-bay, that's where I got mine for about 1/2 price.

Wakesurfing is an absolute kick in the ***. Once you are done skiing or wakeboarding it is a great activity that just about anybody can enjoy. It is also good to do when the water is rough.

start with a longer board it will make it easier to learn. Have fun.

I agree, it's fun and relatively easy. You do do need a large wake on the side you are surfing. I would do some research on the boards before you buy. I have a landlock which is a very long board and once you lose your momemtum you go down. Still it is a lot of fun.

That looks cool, is it easier than regular surfing? How do you get started? (if the answer to the first question is no, disregard the second one, because it ain't happening!)

I hear that, by the time I get out I'm just about spent. I just have a regular surfboard, good enough to give it a try I guess. Do you hold onto the swim platform until you get up to speed? How fast do you go?
