Wakeboarding as an extreme water sport is currently developing very rapidly.

More than 50 million people around the world are fascinated by this activity. 30,000 wakeboarding events and competitions are held annually in Europe and America. Hundreds of participants and hundreds of thousands of fans gather for a common interest - to be involved in this activity.

In Ukraine, wakeboarding has gained such popularity recently, but from season to season it continues to be a favorite active holiday among Ukrainians.

Creating UWF

In 2003, the first X-Traction kite-wake club was established in Ukraine by Zozulya Yuri, Anton Molodtsov and Vasyl Hryshko.

And in 2007 the Ukrainian Federation of Wakeboarding and Water Skiing was founded, which provided a tremendous impetus to the revival and spread of wakeboarding in Ukraine.

UWF goals

The federation was created to unite wakeboarding clubs, Ukrainian athletes, all wakeboarding fans, coaches and judges. UWF promotes the development, promotion and prestige of sports, as well as the direct development of clubs and athletes.

The main tasks of the Ukrainian Wakeboarding Federation are to hold status national and international competitions, and such is the representation of Ukraine in the international arena.

In addition, UWF protects the interests of athletes and creates conditions for improving skills and material growth, organizes the work of children's schools and sections.

In the mid-80's, Tony Finn from San Diego created "Scarfer", a short surf with belts - a prototype of wakeboarding. And Herb O'Brien has already developed an industrial pressed wakeboard. In 1962, the founder of the ski lifts was a German Bruno Ricksen (Munich). As early as 1989, Jimmy Redmon founded the World Wakeboarding Association (WWA), the world's leading wakeboarding organization, which develops wakeboarding, wakeboarding (rope and boat versions), and wakeboarding. The first competition was held in 1989 on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, on the Wailua River, and the first champion was Eric Peretz. The biggest jump in the popularity of wakeboarding was in the United States, especially in Florida.

History of wakeboarding development in Ukraine

After Ukraine gained independence, water skiing experienced a period of decline and oblivion in the 1990s, and the revival of the sport began in 2003, when a group of like-minded and wakeboarding enthusiasts founded the X-Traction Kite Wake Club. Since 2004, on the initiative of the club, wakeboarding competitions have been held regularly, in which Ukrainian, Russian, Belarusian athletes, riders from foreign countries have constantly participated.

In 2007, the first ring cableway in Ukraine was launched in Kyiv. Already in 2008, by order No. 4459 of November 10, 2008, wakeboarding was recognized as a sport by the Ministry of Family, Youth and Sports of Ukraine, thanks to the efforts of the UWF, and on August 17, 2009 at the board of the Ministry, UFV received the status of National.
