Have you ever wakesurfed before? I can say that I have now! The guys over at Shred Stixx Wakesurf School took me out on their boat last week and I had a blast.
They have two instructors, one who focuses on teaching younger kids and one that focuses on ages twelve and up. Having never wakesurfed before I was slightly nervous, but they are so awesome and encouraging that I was up on the board in no time.
They pull you behind their 2013 Malibu Wakesetter Boat equipped with Surf Gate technology, which creates the perfect wave. Once you get the hang of it, you literally feel like you’re surfing in the ocean, and unlike wakeboarding you can actually drop the tow-rope and let the momentum of the wave propel you through the water!
The instructors are so chill, and it was such a fun afternoon. Another cool thing about wakesurfing is that it’s not too taxing on the body, and they claim that they can literally get ANYONE up out of the water. They’ve had students ages 5-65 shredding the wake behind their Boat.
We are giving away a one hour lesson for you and a friend: all you have to do is share this post & “like” Shred Stixx on Facebook.
These guys are creating a really cool brand/lifestyle here in Austin that I’m definitely all for. Did I mention that they make their own wake surfing boards with custom artwork from local austin artists? Do yourself a favor and go check them out! And Keep Austin Surfing!
