Editor’s Note: With over 400,000 lakes, rivers and streams, Ontario and water sports seem like a natural combination. If you’ve never tried it before, where should you begin? Emily Tenwesteneind is an experienced wakeboard competitor, a volunteer for the Roots Wake Series, course instructor for the annual CWSIC course, a level two coach for the Cottage Toys Wakeboard and Water Ski School, and The Wake Institute. Here, she shares her thoughts about water sports in the province.
