In the morning, the sun pleasantly warms the air without becoming scorchingly hot and the lake is calm, a blue that may not quite be like the sea but doesn’t fall short by much. And when it comes down to it, lakes provide the best surface for sports on the crest of a wave, like wakeboarding and wakesurfing, which may well look similar but are not the same thing. Wakeboarding is a type of water skiing on a board on which, thanks to the traction of the boat and a special course, you can pull off spectacular tricks; this is what makes it one of the disciplines in the famous X Games and one of the most popular summer sports among snowboarders. Wakesurfing is closer to real surfing because you surf the continuous wave of the wake from a boat (not the one dragging you along). With the wind on your skin, the water spraying on your face and the calm expanse of the lake...how could you not feel free on this fresh, clear and crystalline water?
