10 of the Most Insane Wakeboarding Videos On The Internet
Are these the best wakeboarding videos on the planet?
Wakeboarding is without a doubt one of the most visually spectacular sports to watch on the planet. It’s grown immensely over the past ten years. Nowadays you can find some of the best wakeboarding videos online with just a click of a button.
From wakeboarding with dolphins to being towed by a Ferrari, there is a wakeboarding video for everything under the sun. Core wakeboarders will enjoy watching some of the world’s best talent putting down some seriously sick wakeboarding tricks in these edits.
WINCHING A CRANBERRY FIELD
Now this is the video everyone has heard about. That Red Bull edit where Josh Tranby and his crew ride through a cranberry field in Wisconsin, USA. It sounds kind of odd but the visual effect of a wakeboard carving through floating red fruit is a surprisingly pleasing sight.
WAKEBOARDING THROUGH AMSTERDAM’S CANALS
Ah Amsterdam, the city of historical architecture, picturesque canals and legalised cannabis. American Casey Neistat decided the Dutch city would make a perfect location for his latest video - wakeboarding down the canals in a tuxedo. Watch Casey Neistat carve his ways among old Coke cans and shopping trolleys, while looking as dapper as James Bond.
USING A CRANE AS A TOW CABLE
We love it when folks get creative with their tow cables. From planes to Ferraris, we thought we had seen it all - until Red Bull pulled this one out of the bag. Introducing the Wake Crane, a floating port crane which rotates 360 degrees towing Dominik Gührs, Felix Georgii and Dominik Hernler behind it. It’s rad - such an awesome idea.
WAKEBOARDING BEHIND A FERRARI
Speaking of Ferraris, here it is. The famous wakeboarding video where Jorge Gill is towed behind a F50 down a very long waterway. Pretty sick huh?
INTRODUCING THE WAKEBIKE
What happens when you cross a wakeboard with a BMX? Ryan Nyquist decided to put it to the test with his brother Shea. Constructing a wakeboarding BMX bike is no mean feat. From building the bike, getting it to float and riding it - this video shows all the challenges involved and makes an entertaining watch!
WAKEBOARDING WITH DOLPHINS
There’s nothing special about the riding in this video. Just a lady cruising along - until she sees a huge pod of dolphins surfing alongside her. How cool is that?
RIDING THE FLOODED STREETS OF BUDAPEST (WHILE BEING CHASED BY POLICE)
There’s something about wakeboarding where you aren’t supposed too that is incredibly enticing, right? When mass floods swept across Europe in 2013, half of Europe’s cities were left underwater. These guys took to Budapest where the River Danube had flooded and hopped on their wakeboards to ride some urban terrain for the very first time. Ever seen someone slalom between flooded traffic lights? Neither had we - until now.
NIGHT WAKEBOARDING WITH LED LIGHTS
Art and wakeboarding don’t mix… or do they? Back in 2013, light painter Patrick Rochon teamed up with wakeboarders Mike Dowdy, Adam Errington and Dallas Friday to create one of the coolest wakeboarding videos to date. Armed with wakeboard lined with LED lights, these guys took to the park at night, creating an awesome visual display.
If you want to watch a really sick wakeboarding video by the talented Devin Supertramp then look no further. The GoPro highlights and aerial footage are awesome. How much fun does this wakeboarding video make it look?
IS THIS THE FUTURE OF WAKEBOARDING?
Pro wakeboarder Raph Derome wanted to capture the soul of the sport in this wakeboarding video. After two years in the making, he has truly succeeded with an eight minute mini-documentary created in collaboration with Red Bull. Prepare yourself for super slick filming and serious talent.
