We have a clear and distinct change of seasons. Summer, winter: And we are already used to waiting for summer to chase a boat or a winch on our favorite board. After all, it seems impossible to ride a wakeboard in winter when the ice is around. But you want to. Yes, and the form must be maintained, it is relevant in the winter.

But do not think that such a bright change of seasons occurs everywhere. There are a lot of very attractive places on our planet where they have never heard of snow and frost, but not only have they heard about wakeboarding, but they are also ready to provide everything necessary for lovers of this type of outdoor Continue reading
