As you approach the first big wake of the season, you try to imagine yourself in the air doing a 360. Right before you hit the wake you close your eyes, bend your knees, and prepare for the jump. It is going to be a big one. For wake boarders, there is no greater thrill than the back and forth of riding a speed boat’s wake. If you are traveling abroad and intend to wake board, you should consider covering yourself with a travel medical insurance policy.
While many insurance companies charge extra to cover extreme sports, Atlas Travel® insurance includes coverage in the event of a wakeboarding accident. We offer several different Atlas Travel plans depending on your destination and how many are in your group. If you are planning a trip to the U.S. or Canada, Atlas America® is designed for your trip. If you are traveling outside of the U.S., we have Atlas International® insurance. Going on a group trip? If you have 5 or more in your group, check out Atlas Group® for a discounted rate!
