newest and one of the most exhilarating sports - if you
like any board sports (skating, snowboarding, surfing)
you will love Wakeboarding.
Beginners; Once kitted up
we start with a land lesson and a discussion about which
foot forward they may ride (Regular left forward, Goofy
right forward). Then it’s onto the training bar before
the rope behind the boat. Getting up for the first time
The next level; We will teach you to
cross the wakes both toe side and heel side, progressing
into how to get some air, then moving onto Ollies, 180’s
and switch riding. The satisfaction of learning your
first trick or landing your first jump is immense!
Inverts and Spins; Once ready you can learn to go upside
down and rotate through 360° in the air land and
continue riding! Our boat has a tower and wedge to help
you get maximum air time at this advanced/pro level. We
will continue to help you improve and give advice and
support should you wish to start competing! Wakeboarding
is 1 to 1.
Activities are suitable for all ages but
dependant on your confidence level. We work on a basis
of 4 sessions per hour, each session lasting 10 minutes
on the water with 5 minutes change over time. Additional
people may ride in the boat even if not taking part in
the activity at no extra charge.
