A wakeboard or pair of water skis offers the opportunity to catch air or experience skimming across a smooth body of water on a hot day. While water skis provide a stable platform for high-speed cruising, a wakeboard can be ridden at slower speeds and includes boots to keep your feet securely attached. An even easier way to feel the wind on your face is by riding an inflatable towable. Simply grab a couple of towables and a few tow ropes, and attach them to the back of a boat. Ridden alone or with friends, towables are a great way for watersport enthusiasts of all ages to get a taste of bouncing through a boat wake or big waves. Brands like Connelly, O’Brien and Slingshot offer a range of towables and wakeboards for beginner to expert users, each requiring tow ropes and a sense of adventure.
