Locals and visitors can always enjoy its many amenities and take part in the opportunity to get out on the lake and try activities such as parasailing, wakeboarding, jet skiing, water skiing, knee boarding, tubing, water skiing, wake skating, sailing and more.
Competitively and recreationally, wakeboarding and wake skating are moving up among the ranks of the most popular water sports here at Smith Mountain Lake, with many of our residents receiving sponsorships and traveling around the country to compete with other water sports enthusiasts. Recently a new website has been developed at Smith Mountain Lake Wakeboarding dedicated to promoting the growth and popularity of these sports at the lake. The site includes event info and will soon feature photo galleries, a forum and more.
