Wakeboarder towed behind a boat

Vessel operators towing a person(s) on water skis or a similar device must obey these laws also.

  • It is illegal for vessels to tow skiers, skiboards, or any device of this type between sunset and sunrise. Local laws may also restrict skiing at certain times and in certain areas.
  • Water-skis, aquaplanes, and similar devices must not be operated in a manner that endangers the safety of persons or property. Passing the towline over another vessel or skier or navigating a skier or vessel between a vessel and its tow are specifically prohibited.
