- What is Wake Surfing?
Wake surfing is a water sport in which a surfer trails behind a wakeboard boat, surfing the boat’s wake without being directly attached to the boat. The wake from the boat mimics the look and feel of an actual ocean wave. After getting up on the wave by use of a tow rope, wake surfers drop the rope and ride the steep face below the wave’s peak in a fashion reminiscent of ocean surfing. Wake surfers generally use special boards, usually five feet or shorter.

- I heard that you have one-on-one lessons with the professionals. How do I sign up?
Demand for lessons at wake surfing events is always popular. By registering early as a sponsor, you’ll have greater choice in selecting your time slot. As a sponsor, you’ll also have access to some pretty impressive swag.
- Will spectators be able to watch the championship?
Spectators will have two fantastic vantage points to view the competition and cheer on the competitors. Viewing areas, both direct and digital, will be erected on the beach at Calabogie Peaks Resort. Alternatively, spectators with boats will be able to view the event up close and personal from the comforts of their own boat.
- Will there be an admission fee?
No. The event is completely free to spectators.
- Is it just going to be wake surfing?
Again, no. We are working to bring a variety of activities to the event grounds so that spectators can enjoy much of what Calabogie has to offer. Stay tuned for updates!
- Will that squirrel be surfing?
No, he’ll be competing in Russia that weekend. However, we’re expecting a few loons to show up.
