    @Jodåsåatt There is a document on the IWWF website "Environmental Handbook for Towed Watersports" hope that helps you.

    Here is a link to information available to you through USAWSWS. I’ve used it and it is helpful. There is a Coast Guard study on shoreline erosion comparing waves to boat rollers.

    I have also researched carbon monoxide levels for wake surfing and have found studies on line that are right on point. FYI, more carbon monoxide in a hockey area from the Zamboni than wake surfing.

    @Jodåsåatt - a quick search of returned the following results (along with lots of injury reports). If using the search engine I would not include patents in the search. I didn't read either article and I don't have access to the second linked article. I would suggest getting a little more specific with your question and seeing what you can find on Google Scholar.
