For years, surfing was the watersport to be seen doing. Yet as much as Singapore is known to be a tropical haven with an amazing beach, her geography also makes her infamous for being far from a surfer’s paradise. If you’re tired of seeking out new destinations and waiting for surf season year after year, you just need to create your own waves by wakesurfing. 

A relatively new water sport, wakesurfing’s an offshoot of wakeboarding, and you’ll find many similarities. Both involves a surfer trailing behind a motorboat on a short surfboard, riding through the break and curls of the boat’s wake. The most obvious difference is, of course, the lack of a rope, making it the closest thing you can get to actual surfing in Singapore.
