Grab some air wakeboarding

The most fun you can have in a wetsuit! That is my explanation of wakeboarding, although most of us here on the Okanagan don't use them (we go board short style).  Not only can you look good out there on the lake, but its one of the healthiest sports going. Now we may not have a crazy cool wakeboat, and no bladders to make that huge wake, but thats not we are about, Luxury Lake Tours is about having fun with family and friends with lots of room to move around and for the ladies, our boat has a full bathroom below deck!

Okay now back to the health benefits that we were talking about that wakeboarding offers us. Let us find out what they are. Read on.

  • Improves flexibility:
    Wakeboarding has a lot to do with your hands and feet. You need a lot of strength in your hands to hold on to the rope and in your feet to balance yourself while the boat pulls you forward. The jumps and turns that you have to make in this water sport increases the flexibility in your hands and feet, which you can carry over to your common household or usual activities.
  • Strengthens muscles:
    Like we discussed in the earlier point, wakeboarding involves a lot of strength on part of your arms and legs. It involves holding, resisting and flexing positions for longer periods. All of this actually proves to be a great exercise to strengthen your arms and legs’ muscles.
  • Your reaction time is improved:
    With a lot of sudden twists and turns, wakeboarding involves sudden changes of positions and directions due to the shift of waves and the boat’s changing directions. This eventually helps to improve your reaction time and versatility.
  • It proves to be a great workout session:
    Doing the air tricks while holding on to the rope using your hands and balancing yourself at the same time with your feet is not only a fun activity, but it requires a lot of strength and effort on your part too. It can drain you physically in the beginning. This is because it is a full body exercise and works great to keep you physically and mentally fit and healthy.
  • Rejuvenates the mind:
    The adrenaline rush that you feel while wakeboarding alone is enough to keep your mind off the daily stressors. Adding to that, the feel-good endorphins that are released in your brain when your wakeboard in the wild waters makes the whole wakeboarding experience fun and therapeutic in nature.
  • It makes you more social:
    You can wakeboard alone, with your family, or in groups filled with absolute strangers. This is a great way to connect with your close ones or make new contacts! This also adds to your improved mental health.
  • Gets you to be swimmer:
    Wakeboarding requires you to fall flat on your face in the water multiple times. The repeated falling will eventually hone your swimming skills and you will be a basic swimmer in no time.
  • Great source of vitamin D:
    While you wear nice wakeboard outfits like women's spring suits/wetsuits and impact vest for women that are available for men as well, you would be glad to know that wakeboarding also exposes you to the sun, which is a great source of vitamin D for you. Soak up the Okanagan sun while having fun in the waters at the same time.

Now that you know all the benefits, what is stoping you from wakeboarding? Go ahead, check us out, lets have some fun in the sun and make some memories while we're at it!
