Surf Kelowna founders Bob and Lewis Vaughan are pioneers of the sport of wakesurfing in the Okanagan area. In 2002 videos started appearing on the internet showing people surfing behind boats, so that year we started playing around with real surf boards and were immediately hooked. Over the next couple years the sport exploded and in 2009 we started up the school. We have perfected the easiest way to teach people with or without watersport experience how to feel the rush of surfing without an ocean. We use fun and laid back teaching techniques that have people leaving with a huge smile on their face.
We are lucky enough to be affiliated with Wizard Lake Marine who makes sure we are into a brand new Nautique boat every year. Industry leading in all categories Nautique Boats are known for being THE number one wake boat in the world. Our 2021 Nautique G23 features the all new Paragon hull which combines elite level wakes and an ultra luxurious interior that cannot be beat. Amenities can be found throughout the entire lounge with a massive wrap-around social atmosphere there's no bad place to watch all the action behind the boat. For 2021 the all-new G23 hull incorporates the enlarged NSS surf system with WAVEPLATE technology to provide the best, biggest and most configurable surf on the market.
