Gamers can then grab a hold of the rope again to continue exploring exciting new areas.

– Groundbreaking 2-Player modes — Gamers will play cooperatively with each other in Co-Op (one player controls the rider while the other controls the boat) and Tug-of-War (dominate the other wakeboarders by taking their extra rope).

– Real World Destinations — Gamers will choose from exotic locations around the world. Every destination from Hong Kong Harbor to Lake Powell has realistic-looking water and amazing wake effects.

– Ride Like a Pro — Players can take control of seven of the world’s best wakeboarders including Shaun Murray, Parks Bonifay, Dallas Friday, Tara Hamilton, Cobe Mikacich, Darin Shapiro and Colin Wright. Each pro possesses unique moves that helped him/her revolutionize their sport.
