Who is SWELL Wakesurf?
Founded in 2016 by a family of watersports and wake surfing enthusiasts, SWELL Wakesurf is a Minnesota-based company nestled in lake country, U.S.A. Because we grew up on the water, we were forever looking for new and exciting things to do out on the lake.
Now our short boating season is filled with product testing and research. A small sacrifice to improve everyone's time on the water! Keep an eye out as we are constantly launching new products and secretly developing a whole lot more!

Back to school for a lot of us means the end of boating season. There are a lot of questions out there about winterization, so I wanted to share some best practices on what to do to prepare your boat for the off season. This isn’t necessarily a by the book maintenance program, this is what I’ve been doing my whole boating life and what has worked for me without issues for the past 42 years of my life.
You may be asking “Why does it matter what rope I use to wakesurf? I will just use it to get up and then drop it.”. The simple answer is the wrong rope can be dangerous. The best equipment for the job is the right equipment. That’s especially true when the wrong rope can be extremely hazardous. You need a wakesurf rope not just because it makes surfing easier, but because a wake surf specific rope is safer.
If you have two 750 pound bags, a bow bag, and a locker sac you are looking at about 20 minutes to fill all your ballast bags and another 20 minutes to empty them. This extended amount of time is one of the reasons we suggest that if you have more than two ballast bags you should get a second pump. The additional pump will cut your fill and empty times in half.
Wakesurfing is this awesome fusion of wakeboarding and surfing that opens up a ride-the-wave experience in even the most landlocked bodies of water. The feeling you get is impossible to explain, but once you get up on that wave all you want to do is stay there, and when you fall, you can’t wait to do it again. It’s no surprise that everybody who has surfed behind their friend’s boat wants to surf as much as they can behind whatever boat they have access to.
