Wakeboarding is a water sport that is growing in popularity. It is a sport that requires a special board and a motor boat specially designed for this extreme sport. Top quality equipment is essential to ensure the safety of the rider.
Besides having a good board, another element that can make or break your wakeboarding experience is the power boat. The motor boat used for wakeboarding is different from an ordinary motor boat. While it is possible to wakeboard behind each powerboat, it is advisable to use a powerboat specifically designed for wakeboarding.
One of the most important features that distinguishes an ordinary motor boat from a motor boat intended for wakeboarding is the presence of a wakeboard tower. When riders began to realize that a higher attachment point increased their hanging time on their boards, they used an elongated pylon to raise the attachment point. Now, the boarding tower can raise the tow line attachment area, increase stability and provide a location for hanging equipment to clear the floor of the boat. Adding the tower will improve your boarding experience and also increase the style quotient of your boat. It can turn any ordinary boat into the perfect boat for the perfect boarding session. Other accessories such as stands, lights and speakers can also be added to the tower.
Buy a tower:
Due to the convenience, popularity, and demand of the wakeboard tower, most manufacturers offer to include the towers in the sale. If you are buying a new boat, it is advisable to buy a boat with a boarding tower already attached as most boat manufacturers work closely with wakeboard tower manufacturers. Therefore, the accessories that you can order with your boat will be of top quality and the boat manufacturers are sure to get a good deal. It is best to have the tower professionally installed by the manufacturer as they have a good idea of what type of tower will work best for your boat.
If you already own a boat and want to upgrade it by adding a boarding tower, it can be confusing to make sure you buy the best type of tour possible for your needs. You can have a tower custom made by the manufacturer. You will need to provide the exact measurements and preferences for your boat. There are certain advantages and disadvantages to having a custom tower.
o They adapt perfectly to your boat.
o They can be any shape and color you want.
o They are more stable.
o They are more expensive.
o They take longer to be delivered.
You can also opt for an adjustable tower. These are sold directly. They also have certain advantages and disadvantages. Such as:
o They are relatively cheaper than custom towers.
o They are always in stock and ready to ship.
o They are only available in a few colors.
o They must be installed by the customer.
Wakeboard rides are a must-have on your boat to truly have the best wakeboarding experience possible.
