Has anyone else tried wake surfing? I hadn't either until some friends invited me out with them to Somerset dam for the weekend.

Its a mixture of surfing and wake boarding I guess? Whatever it is, its so much fun.

You or your friends do need a wake boat to be able to do the activity and a board and its actually quite easy to get the hang of!! (much easier then wake boarding in my opinion) (and Ive never tried normal surfing)

You start off in the water and once you get moving your up really close to the boat riding its wake and after you get the hand of it, you actually let go of the rope and are surfing in true style behind the boat not holding onto anything..

Check it out on youtube for some video and if you get a chance, give it a go!!!
