A bit of a history lesson...
(Daniel Watkins, Wakeboarding Magazine. Circa 2009)
The Brothers Watkins have been in the watersports industry for more than 30 years. They helped shape Australia's wakeboarding scene and they have been a huge influence on what we know about the sport today. It is no wonder why they have such a big following.
Growing up in the wakeboarding scene, Daniel was the first professional Australian wakeboarder to compete in USA. He was one of Australia's wakeboarding pioneers in the early days of competitive wakeboarding and became a 3-time world champion only at the age of 23. He also paved the way and brought the Australian Pro Tour of Wakeboarding to Australia in 2000.

Meanwhile, Mick was an editor at large for Australia's most prominent wakeboard magazines: Wake and Boarder.
Since then, the brothers have spearheaded various wakeboarding events such as the Monster Energy Tigé Tour, Grommie Nats, the ProWake Show and Tigé Owners Reunions.
Here's a sneak peak of the Moster Energy Prowake Show:
Daniel had a vision for what he believed the Gold Coast could be. His love of wakeboarding and desire to see it thrive led him down this path of opening the wakeboard shop Gold Coast, where now people from all over come not only buy the gear but also learn how their gear works too!
In 2009, Daniel opened the Gold Coast Wake Park, a facility where people go to enjoy wakeboarding, kneeboarding, skiing, and wakeskating. At that time, Mick stepped down and let Daniel take the reigns of Prowake.
Here's why you should try it!
A thrill-seeker's ultimate adventure! A great way to tone up: loved by board sports fans, wakeboarding uses all the body's muscles and is great for strengthening the abs. Wakeboarding is also perfect if you need to work on your balance. An excellent option for anyone who wants to use their holiday to get in shape and tone up their body.
Wakeboards are to summer what snowboards are to winter: a wet and wild variant suited to both beginners and hardened riders. Pulled by a motorboat at speeds of around 30kph, find your balance and use the swells to jump your way over the wake.
This a sport for everyone!
Everyone can do wakeboarding. Wakeboarding is a sport that's accessible to everyone but if you have experience snowboarding, surfing or skateboarding, this might suit you best. There's no actual age limit for wakeboarding with us, so bring the whole family together with this excellent water activity.
How to get the right gear for you?
Choosing the right wakeboarding gear isn't as simple as grabbing a basic wakeboard, tying a rope to a boat, and going out there.
There are a variety of gears you need to have when wakeboarding. In addition, some protective equipment such as vests, helmets, and boots are also necessary.
Wakeboarding is a sport that continues to evolve, and wakeboard designs continue to change according to the rider's preference. As a result, various boards are made available to suit each rider's riding style for every corresponding terrain.
When choosing a wakeboard, first check your height and weight. These measurements help determine the size of the wakeboard you need.
Larger boards usually have more stability, something to consider when buying a wakeboard. However, having low stability means it would be more challenging to stay on the board. That said, you will undoubtedly spend more time floating on the water than shredding. However, a stable board will allow for comfortable footing, making it easy to maintain balance.
