The only thing better than wakeboarding is knowing the best places to wakeboard. If you’re thinking about testing your wakeboarding skills out in new waters, then Big Air Wake Towers has come up with this list for you of the top ten best places to wakeboard.
1. Colorado River, US Southwest
The cool and still water combined with the hot weather make the Colorado River one of the most popular water-ski locations in the US. The summer is an especially good time to go since there are so many activities going on. If you’re so inclined, you may also want to check out the annual speedboat races.
2. Lake Shasta, CA
Lake Shasta has long been considered to be one of the absolute best wakeboard lakes. There are four arms, each with a separate lake as well as a main lake near the dam. While you’re here you’ll also have thousands of inlets and coves to explore.
3. Lake Havasu, AZ
Lake Havasu stretches 45 miles long and expands across roughly 19,300 acres. This particular lake is also one of the most popular in the southwest for boating enthusiasts. Not only that, but with its warm water, weather, size and location near Las Vegas, the lake is one of the most popular water-skiing locations in the West.
4. TSR Extreme Sports Complex, TX
One of the best things about the Texas Ski Ranch Complex is that you don’t need a boat for wakeboarding. The cableway is perfect for wakeboarders of various skill levels. A coach, professional driver, Mastercraft towboat and wake-free waters all combine to make you feel as though you’ve arrived in wakeboarding paradise.
5. Lake Lure, NC
You can’t help but mention the Chalet Club when you talk about water-skiing sports. Recently, the Chalet Club has taken steps to become the premiere destination for wakeboard lovers by upping the wakeboarding ante.

Bow Lake has attracted beginning wakeboarders and professional wakeboarders alike. For the most outstanding wakeboarding experience, make sure that you visit anytime between April and October during their spring and summer seasons.
