Wakesurf is a variant of the sport of wake boarding. The primary distinction between wakesurf and wake boarding is that there is no rope involved in the former. As you all know, the rope or the cable plays a very important role in the sport of wake boarding. However, this rope is practically absent as far as wakesurf is concerned. view this
How does a person find propulsion in the absence of a rope? The individual is towed by the motor boat for a short distance. He or she is attached to the motorboat with the help of the rope for a short distance. However, once the individual gathers momentum, the rope is released and the individual surfs the wake on his or her own. The most obvious question is- Is it possible to surf the wake without any other form of propulsion? The answer is obviously- yes.
The person who surfs the ocean makes use of the waves to move forward. This enables him or her to surf the waves without any other form of propulsion. However, it is impossible to find waves on lakes. That is the reason why motorboats are used to create wakes to replicates the wave that is found in the ocean. The person then proceeds to surf the wake without the assistance of the boat. The individual uses the aerodynamics of the wake to keep moving. Of course, sooner or later, the momentum of the person is lost and he or she has to start all over again. However, depending on the choice of the motorboat and the choice of the wake surf board, you can keep moving for a long period of time.
