Living in a landlocked country can be hard if you need vitamin sea badly. It’s a good thing we have lakes and boats on them. Combined correctly, the two of them give us solution number two for landlocked surfing: wakesurfing.
About 15 years ago, wakesurfing evolved from wakeboarding (allthough the idea of surfing the wake of a boat might be older) and went through the roof in no time. At least in Switzerland, which must be a combination of so many surfers gathering in a country so far away from the next surfable beach. Around ten years ago I spent a fortune to go wakesurfing on a daily basis and made some nice progress. But that’s long ago and today I’d rather spend that money for my next surf trip.
But it was still nice to have a ride and see how much skills I had left after 10 years.
