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 Centurion boat every year. Centurion Boats are known for having THE best surf wake in the industry. With around 5,000 lbs of hidden ballast and the patented Ram Fill system allowing for 90 second side to side filling it is the quickest and must adjustable wake ever. Beginner or pro, steep or mellow we can shape the wake to your liking and ability. Also Centurion's Opti-V Hull eliminates the shock of rough water for an amazingly smooth ride in any condition. If you haven't been behind a Centurion we highly recommend it, the push and shape is like nothing else it will blow you away.
