Wakeboarding in Costa Rica Wakeboarding in Costa Rica


Ride the wave like there’s no tomorrow!

The beauty of Costa Rica, the magic of Lake Arenal’s crystal waters, and the best watersports for you to enjoy with family and friends. Already pro? Textbook amateur? Total beginner? Whoever you are, the fun is guaranteed in Lake Arenal.


Wondering which watersports you should try – or whether you can pack them all into a single day? Find out more about why we love each of our watersports below.



Perfect for: beginners, or anyone looking for a fun challenge, and to learn a new skill.

Picture this: you will be standing on a small board with foot bindings (a lot like the set-up for a snowboard, with boots you slip your feet into), and holding onto the handle of a rope. At the other end of that rope? Our boat.

The boat will pull you across the water while you ride the wake – AKA, the never-ending wave created by the hull of our boat. At first, the goal is just to maintain balance. Trust us – it’s a learning curve.

But, once you’ve got that under control, you can start to master tricks and stunts, from jumping the wake to ollies and tail grabs (the skateboarders know what we’re talking about here).

Everyone can enjoy wakeboarding, whether they’re a first-timer or backed by years of experience.



Perfect for: keen surfers who prefer not to wait around for the best waves.

Wakesurfing is a little like wakeboarding, at least in the beginning. The biggest difference is that you’ll be going barefoot, and gripping the board while you work to maintain balance.

At first, you will be pulled by the boat, and once on the wave, you will very quickly learn how to ride it without the rope, and surf the boat’s wake a lot like you would surf an ocean wave.

What we love about wakesurfing is that the boat creates the magic for you. All the juice without the lulls.



Perfect for: pretty much everyone, from beginners to experts.

This one shares a lot of similarities with wakeboarding but, instead of a board, your feet will be attached to skis.

Riders typically use two skis, which is probably what you’re picturing right now – a lot like you see it done on the snow but, instead, on the waves. Interestingly, in recent years, use of a single slalom ski has gained popularity, as it allows you to make much sharper curves through the water.

Whether you’re on one or two skis, the boat will tow you across while you keep balance. Happy to just get pulled along? Enjoy the right. Think it all sounds too easy? Throw some tricks into the mix!



Perfect for: fun-seekers who aren’t looking for a steep learning curve.

Getting out on the water and trying something new doesn’t mean you have to learn a whole new skill. If you are looking to have some fun out on the water with family and friends, then tubing is the perfect choice. It’s challenging enough, but there are no rules or techniques to master.

To have a great time, all you need to do is lie on the tube with one or two friends, hold on tight, and let the boat drag you around the water at top speeds while you try not to fall off. The tube will bounce over incoming waves and sway left and right, trying to throw you off into the water like a bucking bronco.

It’s low stakes, lots of fun, and just the right amount of adrenaline.

The Perfect Waves for Watersports

Yep, you heard us right. We really can customize the waves for you.

The biggest bugbears of any watersport enthusiast are unpredictable, choppy, or messy waves. It’s hard to learn when the waves are too big, and it’s hard to get better when the waves are too small.

The G23 provides the perfect endless wave for whatever you desire; a surf wave that can be shaped and scaled based on the preferences of the surfer. Built on the framework and knowledge of its award-winning predecessor, it delivers world-class, unmatched performance for anyone ready to get out on the water.

For this reason alone, the Super Air Nautique G23 is undoubtedly the best modern-day wake boat in existence.
