The Wake Shaper Is the Most Unique Gift for Boat Owners

The struggle of trying to ride the perfect wave is over! 

​Do you want to transform the way your friends wakesurf? Meet WAKE 10 Wakeshapers! They help wakesurfers catch a wave more efficiently, regardless of skill level. That is why they make a great gift for boat owners. 

At WAKE 10, we innovated wake surfing, so surfers no longer struggle to catch a wave because it is short and choppy. Both factors that make it difficult to catch a wave and stay on it once you've caught it. 

Surfing with a wake shaper makes the wave longer, taller and smoother. Beginner wake surfers find catching the wave easier, while advanced surfers can practice new tricks and learn to carve like a professional.  

WAKE 10's designs change the wakesurfing experience while remaining the best-priced in the industry. 

What does this mean for you? 

This holiday season, surprise your friends with a wake shaper to help them elevate their wakesurfing journey. 

WAKE 10 is home to two premium wake shapers that improve how people wakesurf.  However, before we break down why WAKE 10's wake shapers elevate wakesurfing, let's learn more about how a wake shaper does its job. 

The Functionality of a Wake Shaper

As mentioned above, wake shapers smooth out and remove the choppiness of a boat's wake. To understand how a wake shaper enhances the wake, it is important to understand the factors that impact a boat's wake:
  • The boat's hull design 
  • The boat's speed
  • The amount of ballast bags and their location on the boat

The Boat's Hull Design

The hull is the bottom of the boat, the part that goes in the water. For different boat hulls, boaters find that there will be different wakes. A planing hull glides across the surface and is the design for most powerboats. A flat-bottom hull is much like the name; flat, which makes for a slow and calm wake.

The Boat's Speed

The speed is another factor that goes into your boat's wake. The boat disturbs the calmness of the lake. Once the boat starts moving, it pushes the water aside, so it can continue to propel forward.

The slower the boat moves, the slower the disruption. As boats increase speed, it will create an enormous disruption, making bigger waves.

The Weight and Placement of Ballast Bags

Ballast bags act as weights that can help make waves bigger. They help to level out the boat to even the wake and help surfers catch the wave. 

​These three elements work together to produce a boat's wake. If you add a wake shaper to the above elements, you’ll have an elevated surfing experience.

So What Exactly Is a Wake Shaper?

A wake shaper is essentially a wedge that attaches to the side of a boat to dramatically enhance the wake for wakesurfing. Wake shapers make time on the water that much more enjoyable.

There are several ways to install a wake shaper. However, WAKE 10's installation process is one of the easiest. Our wake shapers attach via industrial-grade suction cups. No nuts or screws are required. 

Once the wake shaper is installed on the side, of the boat opposite the surfer, the wake shaper can go to work. The wake shaper breaks down the flow of water while also introducing turbulence. These changes to the wake allow the surfer's side of the wave to calm down and make it easier to surf. 

The wake shaper's ability to clean up a wake is why a wake shaper is a great gift idea for boat owners. If they struggle to hang loose on the lake, a wake shaper may be the way to go.

Let's Look at WAKE 10's Wake Shapers

WAKE 10 is home to two premium wake shapers.  Both serve the same function and purpose; however, the design of each wake shaper is different. 

Let's start with the WAKE 10 Wakesurf Creator.

The WAKE 10 Wakesurf Creator

The Wakesurf Creator features a single-piece plastic body injection mold, which is highly durable. In addition, it features marine-grade stainless steel hardware and easy-to-flip levers. The levers make installing the wake shaper easy because you only need to close them once you have them in the ideal position. In addition, the industrial-grade suction cups are top-of-the-line and made of high-quality materials, so they will keep your wake shaper secure. 

​The Wakesurf Creator has an eight-by-eight inch wave shaping area, which creates a perfect wake. Because of its compact size, it is easy to install and store, and it fits most inboard boats. 

Let's break down the specs: 
  • Industrial-grade suction cups
  • Marine-grade stainless steel hardware
  • Single-piece plastic body injection mold
  • Universal design 
  • Easy to install and store 
  • Includes a floating lanyard
Since the standard wake shaper fits almost all inboard boats, you can’t go wrong with this gift.

The X4 Pro features the following design elements:
