  Our qualified coaches can teach you everything from getting up on the board, hitting our kickers and rails to your first big air tricks.

New To Wakeboarding?


A Wakeboard is a buoyant board (resembling a snowboard) that is used to ride over water while being pulled behind a cable tow.

Like water skiing, which most people are a little more familiar with, the wakeboarder is towed behind the cable ski at a speed of around 18-24 mph. The main difference is that instead of skis, the rider uses a single board (like a snowboard) with bindings.

Wakeboards are shorter in length than snowboards and slightly wider. 

Tricks are performed on the surface of the water, over kickers and rails or in the air. The most spectacular tricks, known collectively as inverts, are generally performed by launching oneself from the water in the air and going upside down.
