Fun Facts

The first version of the wakeboard was tested on the Carlsbad Lagoon in 1985. Originally called the “Skurfer” a shorter, more narrow version of a surfboard with foot straps. Not only was the first wakeboard tested here, but so was the first stand-up jet ski. In 1972, Kawasaki tested their first-ever model of the Personal Watercraft that would be trademarked as the “Jet Ski.”
