How much horsepower does a jet ski need to pull a wakeboarder?
70 HP is more than adequate to tow a traditional skier, tuber, or wakeboarder. With an appropriately sized boat for the horsepower, you can typically tow two skiers on double skis. A 70 HP engine combined with a light boat and minimal load can also generally tow a 175lb slalom rider at a competitive level.
