Wakeboarding is a surface water sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water. It was developed from a combination of water skiing, snowboarding and surfing techniques and while no pro experience is required any skills leaned from other board sports will help your progression in wakeboarding.
The minimum age limit is 7 years old.
Whilst you will be wearing a buoyancy aid at all times on the water participants must be able to swim at least 50m confidently.
We aim to continue to run in all weathers, after all when you’re in the water you are getting wet any way! However on occasions such as exceptionally high winds and during thunderstorms we are unable to run sessions for safety reasons. Please contact us prior to travelling if you think your session could be at risk to the weather.
We provide wetsuits, buoyancy aids, helmets and wakeboards, all you need to bring is swimming clothes to wear under the wetsuit and a towel for afterwards, flip flops are also advised for walking around the dock area.
The main visual difference is a two tower cable has only two towers, the cable runs up and down in a straight line rather than around a lake in a circle. This means we only have 1 rider on the water at a time allowing them to receive 1 to 1 coaching from the diver. If the rider falls on a two tower cable the cable stops and the rider can start again from where they fell in the water rather than swimming to the side walking back to the dock and joining the queue as on a conventional system. This gives riders more time on the water in a shorter session time creating faster progression and a friendly atmosphere around the dock. The operator has complete speed control over the cable pulling riders up out of the water slowly and smoothly compared to the 0 – full speed instantly on a full size cable.
The simple answer is YES we have now taught 1000’s of complete beginners on our two tower cable and still to date have a 100% success rate. Every single person that has come to learn has got up on their board in their first session.
