Tony Finn & the Skurfer. Also around the same time Jimmy Redmond started Redline. The Redline was far superior to the Skurfer in that it was glassed not plastic.

Here's the real deal:

My guess it's true story http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wakeboarding
"While the 'Surf-Ski' found limited success in the United States, the 'Skurfer' brand promoted by Tony Finn became a viable product, mostly due to Finn's tireless promotions. Finn's position as the most visible promoter of the sport when it became widely known has often caused him to be mistakenly named as the inventor of the sport. A more accurate, though no less important description, would be popularizer." had said there
