Lake Lanier is located in Georgia, complete with mountains, waterfalls and roughly 700 miles of shoreline. The warmer climate of Georgia means the time in the water will be that much sweeter and time outside of the water can be spent camping or hiking since the lake is located near Don Carter State Park – perfect! 

Lake Travis, Texas

Sure, a lake with a view is not absolutely necessary to enjoy a day wake surfing, but it doesn’t hurt either! Lake George is said to be one of the best mountain lakes in the U.S. and lovingly nicknamed “Queen of American Lakes”. With beautiful views and plenty of space to wake surf, this is definitely a great Spring Break location! 

There is no shortage of beautiful places to wake surf – what is your favorite? No matter where you choose to spend your Spring Break this year, spend some time on the water and have some fun!
