Wake surfing comes to Ibiza
This summer will see the first wake surfing school opening in Ibiza, called Wake on Ibiza who will be based in San Antonio which is located in the south west of the island.
For those who don’t know what wake surfing is, it is a very cool watersport in which a rider trails behind a boat, riding the boat’s wake without being directly pulled by the boat.
After getting up on the wake, typically by use of a tow rope, the wake surfers will drop the rope, and ride the steep face below the wave’s peak in a fashion reminiscent of surfing.
So you end up riding the wave or wake from the boat in front of you and as long as you can keep your balance and the boat keeps moving forward you could continue for as long as you like, the never ending wave.
Wake on Ibiza are the first to offer this water sport in Ibiza. It is suitable for all ages and most people are able to wake surf successfully within 20 minutes with the minimum of teaching.
The boats used have been specially designed for water sports (Super Air Nautique G25) and as well as being luxurious they have the ability to adjust the wake behind the boat and also encompasses on board cameras to catch all the action from your wake surfing trip.
