I have to admit that I missed the wakeboard revolution.  I own one, but if I have the energy, I will opt for my slalom ski or my  bare feet before getting on the board.  Not so, for the rest of the world.  Wakeboarding and wake surfing have not only created a new water sports equipment market, but have changed the way boats are manufactured.  I picked my boat based on how small the wake is, and now every major boat company is offering boats with the biggest and most flexible wakes possible.  Check out what Harley Clifford was able to do with this MasterCraft wake at the recent tour stop in  Acworth, GA.
