Founded in 2016 by a family of watersports 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. It was the early 2000’s when we discovered wake surfing—and got hooked. Not only was it a blast, but the sport fit our healthy lifestyle perfectly. And the more we learned, the more we realized: our older boat created a nearly perfect small wave! With some minor tweaks, we’d be the envy of all our neighbors—and their luxury $75,000 boats bought specifically for epic wave creation.
It was early 2016 when wake shapers entered the market. But suction technology wasn’t yet the rage. Plus, the mainstream wake shapers were bulky—not designed with appearance in mind. Knowing we could do so much better, we decided to create our own suction solution for people with boats like ours: small and more mature, but with plenty of miles left. SWELL Wakesurf Creator™ launched in July of 2016 and the world of wake surfing has never been the same. Not only were we able to create an affordable solution, it could transform any boat—old or young—into a wakesurf creating king.
No matter how much we grow, we’ll always have the heart of a little company. And that’s why we still sell our products direct which allows us to keep our prices down and put more people out on the water. No doubt we’re the best value on the market.
