Lake surfing

Posted By on Tue, May 29, 2007 at 3:01 PM



Over the weekend, during the long race rain delay, I rode around in this fancy ski boat with my future in-laws and their friends. My soon-to-be brother-in-law is a former champion wind surfer and a huge gearhead. Last Christmas, his wife bought him a wake surfboard and it'd just gotten warm enough for him to try it out.

It was one of the damnest things I've ever seen. There are scores of other wake surfing videos out there. For all its graininess, I chose this one because it captures how terrifyingly close surfers have to stay to the boat. Course this is something people only do with inboard motors, and you'd have to defy physics (or the boat would have to run aground) to crash into the back, but still. Shew. Not for me. But really cool to watch.

Anyone seen anyone wake surfing in Arkansas?
