Is this the right class for me?

The Wakeboarding Freeride Session is perfect for anyone working on a new trick, learning how to get up for the first time, or giving wakesports a try. During this session, you will be on a boat with up to a total of 4 participants and can choose which activity you would like to do including wakeboarding or wakesurfing. Use this opportunity to ride the finest equipment available from Liquid Force and O'Brien.
