During the hot summer, everybody desires to get into water. If you have never tried water sports or wakeboarding, then this summer is your chance, do not miss it. In a country where there are no real waves, and the chances of becoming a surfer are close to -500, wake park is the best place to recharge with a surfer-like atmosphere.

Wakeboarding is gaining more and more popularity in Latvia every year. It is a water sport that engages all muscle groups, and feels a bit like a freestyle snowboard, but much safer.

Typically, the wakeboarding season in Latvia starts in early May and ends in October.

In total, there are more than 30 wake parks in Latvia with cable and boat wakeboarding. Follow this link to visit a special wakeboarding website where you can see the full list of Latvian wake parks. And below, read about 5 spots that my friends recommended to me.
