For those unfamiliar with the sport, wake surfing is a growing sport where participants literally “surf” the wake of a boat with specialized surfboards. Using the Centurion Enzo 244, a large-wake boat driven at a slower speed, wake surfers are able to pull themselves into the boat’s wake and then drop the rope and surf – just like an ocean wave! Athletes are judged on their tricks and style, with the winners qualifying for the World Series.
The event will be held in Gold Bay on Lake Koocanusa, just an hour drive south of our Fernie Hotel. This is a great day trip from Fernie and promises to be an action packed day on the lake!
With only a few weeks left for summer activities at Fernie Alpine Resort, you’ll want to be sure to make the trip! Come enjoy world class mountain biking, zip lining, aerial park, hiking, and more! Fernie’s epic winter activities are offset by incredible sunny summers, making it truly paradise for the outdoorsy.
