WBLCD ordinance 16 says “No person shall operate a watercraft in such a manner that its wash or wake will endanger, harass, or unnecessarily interfere with any other person or property…” Operators of wake boats designed to create waves for surfing need to take special care. A recent study from the University of Minnesota shows that wake boats generate waves with height, energy and power that extend more than twice as far as those of regular speedboats. WATCH YOUR WAKE!
