Introduction to Wakeboarding
A really nice Vintage Flying Experience available in .
Wake up and give a fun new sport a go with a wet and wild wakeboarding introduction session. As one of the fastest growing water sports in the UK, the exhilarating hybrid of water-skiing, surfing and snowboarding is perfect for those who are always seeking a thrill! Begin with a full safety briefing with a trained instructor, before hitting the water to put those new skills to the test. With both feet strapped into a single wide board, grip onto the cable tow and glide through the wake, allowing the speedboat to take the lead. With one-to-one coaching, learn all the wakeboarding basics, including balance and posture and for those who are feeling brave, maybe even a few try out a few tricks!
Some locations offer selected dates throughout the summer season; others operate all year round. Please book as far in advance as possible.
May be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions. Please call the venue if in any doubt.
Sessions last between 1 – 3 hours depending on the venue, including a briefing (please arrive a few minutes in advance of the booked time to get ready). Feel free to stay on afterwards and watch other sessions taking place.
Share the experience with between eight and 19 other budding wakeboarders, depending on the location.
Guests are welcome to watch (and laugh) and each venue has either an outdoor cafe or club house facilities.
