Essential Wakeboarding Gear Guide with Carro Djupsjo
“There is no better feeling than cutting through glassy water on your board with a bunch of friends in the boat…” says Carro Djupsjo, current four time European Wakeboarding Champion.
To test wakeboarding for yourself check out your local wakeboarding club. Break yourself in with a few lessons, until you’re hooked and ready to take the plunge.
Today, we want to inspire you to take to the water with Team LifeProof Athlete Carro’s ultimate gear guide:
Slingshot offer one of the best ranges of board on the market and have something for everyone. The board i’m riding is the Reflex 137 with Jewel bindings. It’s a perfect set up to take to the park as it passes great on rails while still landing smoothly off the kickers.
These are important for protecting you from bangs and falls but also providing you with flotation while in the water, my favourite is the O’Neill Slasher series
Adds that extra confidence when trying something new on the rails and keeps your head intact if you would have a slam or two.
GoPro – Hero 4
To me this is the ultimate action camera for capturing film (to share my latest tricks with you guys) while I’m on the water.
LifeProof Protected iPhone 6s
This case keeps my phone protected while at the lake, allowing me to capture my most epic moments. Being able to instantly replay content captured on my Go Pro makes my LifeProof case the perfect combination. My pink iPhone 6/6s FRE case my favourite!
Bikini and Boardshorts
…or just board shorts for the guys! Quick drying fabrics and comfy designs are whet’s important while being on the water. I’m in love with the prints and colours of the O’Neill range and i’ll usually bring a couple of different ones to have some dry attire to lounge in after riding.
After your ride it’s always great to sit back in the boat and watch your friends. Keep your eyes protected by wearing some polarized sunnies!
LifeProof’s super-dry towel (a gift from my sponsor) is the perfect accessory while on the go as it’s light weight and fits neatly in my bag.
