FREE Wakesurfing Lessons!

Wakesurfing is an ever popular sport enjoyed by people who live around water, especially at the Lake of the Ozarks! Getting out in that water and feeling the breeze on your face as you fly across the top of the water is a refreshing feeling that you won't want to miss.  At Surdyke Yamaha, we love to help people get out on the water and learn new tricks, hobbies and more. Here are a few things you may not have known about wakesurfing, as well as how you can get FREE lessons!


  • A trained surfer can hold his breath for about four minutes while the static apnea record holder does it for more than 11 minutes.
  • Surfers only spend 8% of the time riding waves.
  • The highest tides in the world can be found in Canada, at the Bay of Fundy. Sometimes the difference between high and low tide is 16.3 meters (53.5 feet).

What is Wakesurfing?

The best thing about wakesurfing is that you don't have to go travel to a coast to catch the waves - you just create your own! It's a relatively new water sport, and kind of an offshoot of wakeboarding. Because it can be easy or challenging, novices and seasoned water-sport athletes are all enjoying this great sport. There are already World Wakesurfing Championships and many other professional-level competitions for this sport. 

To wakesurf, you'll be trailing behind a motorboat on a short surfboard. The wakesurf boards are generally only five feet long. The beauty of the sport is that you'll be surfing in the wake of the boat, and you don't have to count on the water to create a surf for you. The boat will be freighted with extra weight to increase the amount of wake, which can make the sport more challenging. 

Wake/Surf Boats

Because we have the best selection of wake boats at the Lake of the Ozarks, we obviously want to share them with you! Check out these two beauties that would work perfectly for your summer activities!

2016 Centurion Enzo FS44 - Surdyke Yamaha

The Centurion Enzo FS44 is the boat of choice for professional wake surfing athletes like Keenan Flegel. The largest in accommodations and waves in the Centurion line, the 2016 FS44 offers room for 16 along with waves that can extend overhead in a bottom turn. The FS44 is designed and built as a World Wake Surfing Champion’s towboat creating longest, hardest, most powerful waves available. The Centurion Enzo FS44 is a World Championship Towboat, relentlessly innovated.

2015 Centurion Enzo SV233 - Surdyke Yamaha

New features include the Maximus Tower, Centurion Downfire audio system with LEDs, flip-up stadium seating and so much more! The now standard RAMFILL ballast system provides you with the largest capacity tanks with the quickest filling system possible. No gimmicky surf-system, this is pure displacement and the SV233 is one of the most versatile wake boats with clean, professional wakes coupled with a World Wake Surfing Championship wave on both sides of the boat.
