Adaptive Wakesurf Tour
Malibu Boats Partners with Brave the Wave to Spread the Stoke
Founded by adaptive athlete Lexi Youngberg, Brave the Wave set out to bring together the adaptive community through wakesurfing. Brave the Wave is a nonprofit that strives to help the adaptive community to realize they are capable of doing much more than they ever thought possible. “When I was 16, I was involved in a traumatic boating accident resulting in me becoming a left below-the-knee amputee. I have been an amputee for eleven years now and through everything I have accomplished in those years, creating Brave the Wave has been by far the coolest full circle moment of my life,” says Lexi.
“It’s hard to put into words the impact these events have on both the adaptive community and the professional athlete community! We have accomplished combining two different worlds into one community through wakesurfing! These events show each community they travel to just how resilient the human spirit is amidst the different adversity we all face in life...”

Each summer, Malibu Boats partners with Brave the Wave at stops alongside their Just Ride Tour to host free events teaching adaptive individuals how to wakesurf and bring individuals of all abilities and passions together. At each event, people from all over come together and learn how to wakesurf, try out new boards and gear, and experience new prosthetics. Throughout the tour, Malibu Boats athletes join the Brave the Wave team to host small groups of adaptive surfers and help provide them one-on-one coaching, assistance in the boat and water, teach fundamentals of how to wakesurf and most importantly, just have an awesome time on the lake!
