Between global warming, the Gulf oil spill and the damn liberal media, sometimes one can feel guilty participating in wake sports. Wakeboarding and wakeskating are admitedtly not the world’s greenest activities, and no amount of bamboo used in production is going to change that. Unfortunately for the planet, the pure joy of participation in these sports is not going away any time soon, but what can you do to reduce your impact?

Peace.
