Powerboats are fun on their own, but toss in a rope and something to ride the waves and they take on a whole new dimension. Whether you hop on skis, a board or grab a springy rubber tube, water sports are an exciting, relatively inexpensive way to ensure your powerboat earns its keep.

Getting wet and wild

Powerboats are fun on their own, but toss in a rope and something to ride the waves and they take on a whole new dimension. Whether you hop on skis, a board or grab a springy rubber tube, water sports are an exciting, relatively inexpensive way to ensure your powerboat earns its keep.

Fun and carefree as these sports look on the surface, they all require at least three items:

  • A life jacket designed specifically for water sports

Wakeboarding (Skurfing)

No, it's not a typo. “Skurfing” is the Australian sport that began the wakeboarding craze. Combining the best of surfing, water skiing and snowboarding, this sport is a hotdogger's dream. No matter what you call it, you don't need a mountain or big waves to enjoy the ride. Although there's a learning curve, with practice, boarders can freestyle with relative ease. Because this gift from Down Under is still evolving, you make up the rules as you go.

Tubing

Sometimes called “inner tubing” or “biscuiting,” this water sport is ideal for child...
