Wakesurf Ballast Bags

Watersports fans are always in search of bigger, badder wakes and waves. To build a bigger wake, you need to add additional weight to your boat. You could bring extra passengers aboard and position them strategically around your watercraft. You could load a pile of bricks or cobblestones in your bilge, as was done in 18th-century sailing ships. The best, and least awkward, way to add weight is with ballast bags.

WakeMAKERS offers the largest online selection of ballast bags for boats. Founded by watersports aficionados, WakeMAKERS got our start in 2009 because we couldn't find ballast bags that met our high standards, so we decided to make them ourselves. We take a technical approach to manufacturing the best wake boat ballast bags in the business.
