Wakeboarding / Wakeboard

In English:

Wakeboarding on Alfsee, Germany

It was ten years ago when we again made a road trip in Germany. It was the second time, when we visited to Alfsee. The previous visit was in 2003. Alfsee is a great Alfsee Holiday & Leisure Park in Rieste, Germany. Rieste is a small place with population of 3519. Alfsee offers nice visits to nearby towns. It offers camping possibility, holiday homes and in addition to them, It provides everything that families need when on holiday. I guess that youngsters love Karting for example. Nearby, there is the lake Alfsee. We loved walking around it admiring the lake itself and sheep on pasture.

One of our interest was admiring skilled wakeboarders. in 2010, this sport was not known in Finland, but now we have at least 10 places where to practice it. This post shows you only Wakeboard photos.

What is Wakeboard? Well, Wakeboarding is a related sport of water skiing. I could say that, it is formed on the basis of water skiing, snowboarding and surfing. If you have not seen it, now you have an excellent possibility to get to know it.

En español:

Wakeboard en el Alfsee, Alemania

Fue hace diez años cuando nuevamente hicimos un viaje por carretera en Alemania. Era la segunda vez, cuando visitamos a Alfsee. La visita anterior fue en 2003. Alfsee es un gran parque de vacaciones y ocio Alfsee en Rieste, Alemania. Rieste es un lugar pequeño con la población de 3519 habitantes. Alfsee ofrece agradables visitas a pueblos cercanos. Ofrece la posibilidad de acampar, casas de vacaciones y, además de ellas, ofrece todo lo que las familias necesitan cuando están de vacaciones. Supongo que los jóvenes aman el Karting, por ejemplo. Cerca hay el lago Alfsee. Nos encantó pasear admirando el lago y las ovejas en el pasto.

Uno de nuestros intereses fue admirar a los expertos wakeboarders. En 2010, este deporte no se conoció en Finlandia, pero ahora tenemos al menos 10 lugares donde practicarlo. Esta publicación solo le muestra fotos de Wakeboard.

¿Qué es el wakeboard? Bueno, Wakeboard es un deporte relacionado con el esquí acuático. Podría decir que se forma sobre la base del esquí acuático, el snowboard y el surf. Si no lo ha visto, ahora tiene una excelente posibilidad de conocerlo.

A proximité, il y a le lac Alfsee. Nous avons adoré nous promener en admirant le lac lui-même et les moutons au pâturage.

  1. Hello! Wakeboard looks fun. Water skiing is popular in Japan, but I think the wakeboard population is small. You have a lot of hobbies, right?Have a good day!

  2. Thanks for getting me aquainted with this lake, not far away (70 kms) from where I was born, however I have neither been there nor ever heard of it before. Stay safe 🙂

  3. Interesting as I actually came across wakeboarding in Keilaniemi, Espoo about four years ago, located very near to where we were staying. I enjoyed watching the various activities in the water park there too. Hope you are both keeping well and enjoying the long days, Marion

    • Hello Marion.

      Thank you commenting. We have not been to Keilaniemi. Interesting to know that there is also Wakeboarding place. We did find another when we walked halfway from Leppävaara to Munkkiniemi. It was spring during Coronavirus times, so we did not contuse further, because we did want to take a tram and train ride back to our home. This summer, we will walk to Munkkiniemi.

      Have a wonderful day!

    Everyone who is playing the wakeboard is enjoying it. It feels great when they float in the air.

    Have a good day.

      Tus palabras me hicieron sonrojar posque no soy excelente fotógrafo. Acabo de hacer clic en el disparador: clic, clic, clic. 🙂 Agradezco sus palabras, y espero que en el futuro yo soy su valor. Much gracias.

      ¡Que tengas un buen día!

  10. Interesting. I used to do water skiing when on holidays in Austria with my parents. I loved that. This looks more like skateboard on water, with jumping and acrobatic not being pulled by a boat. Looks like they are having fun. It must have been hard to get all these pictures in action. Brilliantly done!

      Merci de louer mes photos! J’apprécie beaucoup vos aimables paroles! Il existe de nombreux sites de Wakeboard en France, je l’ai vérifié! 🙂

      Bises et belle journée!

  13. Hej Matti,

    those are amazing pictures you took there of the wakeboarders performing their arts.
    I did not know that we have a facility like that fairly close by. I live in Hamburg and Osnabrück (as a town as well and a district) is not so awfully far away from here.

    I hope you enjoyed your stay at the time and thank you for sharing!

    Much love,
    Steffi

    • Hello Steffi.

      Thank you praising my photos! I am glad that you loved them. We have not been to Osnabrück, but in Hamburg. Is Osnabrück far away from the town called Aachen? I ask this due it, that participated during 2½ years in a big IT project and visited to Aachen about 15 times. Our flights arrived to Düsseldorf and then by car.

      Germany is very beautiful and we love it very much. Among my:

      About me

      I have few photos here and there around Germany. Our favorite product is “Strandkorb”.

      Stay health,
      Matti

      • Moin Matti,

        Osnabrück is a town as well as the district in the county Lower Saxony to which Alfsee belongs.

        Aachen is further South-West in the county North Rhine-Westphalia right at the border to France and the Netherlands if I am not completely mistaken.

        Strandkörbe are the best! I love them, too, and would not mind having one on my balcony.

        Much Love and stay healthy, you and your loved ones!

          We considires it, but it is heavy and how to assamble after transporing it on the trailer. 🙂

  16. You went off the ramp??? Wow! I waterski with one ski (or slalom) but can’t get the hang of wakeboarding. Not too much water in Colorado, but my brother-in-law just bought a house on the lake in Wisconsin. Next summer, after Covid, we’ll definitely make the trip!
