Beginner Wakeboarding

Beginner Full Size Cable Water Sports

A 2 hour introductory session, learning how to kneeboard, water ski or wakeboard on our five tower cable system.

Even if you have been water skiing or wakeboarding behind a boat, jet ski or on a two tower cable system, but haven’t navigated a full size cable system, you should attend one of these sessions before booking regular sessions with us.

The beginner experience starts with a tour of the facility, collecting your equipment (rental costs included in the price) and wetsuit (if hired separately), before the on-land induction. The on-land induction covers how to navigate the cable by following the course buoys, along with basic techniques to get you on the water and changing directions.

After the induction, you will have a 90 minute group session on our main cable. To learn how to navigate the cable, beginners will start by going out on kneeboards or water skis, before progressing to wakeboards if they are successful.

If you do have your own equipment, you are able to use it if it is suitable for full size cable use, alternatively the sports equipment is included in the cost. Wetsuits are available for hire separately for £5 online or £7.50 if you decide to hire them on the day.
