by Waterski and Wakeboard Scotland Claimed ( Activity )
Wakeboarding has many features in common with sports such as snowboarding, waterskiing, surfing and skateboarding but is very much a sport in its own right. In fact, wakeboarding has been said to be the fastest growing water sport in the world.
As with waterskiing, the rider is towed behind either a boat or a cable setup, but typically at slower speeds (18 – 24mph).
The rider wears a single board with stationary non-release bindings for each foot, standing sideways as with a snowboard or skateboard. The boards, which can float, are typically 130 – 147cm long and up to 45cm wide and convex (tips 15 – 25cm).
It is an incredibly fun sport but still growing in Scotland! Our coaches are fully qualified to help anyone of any ability to get up and have fun on the water.
Get in touch for more info! You can try wakeboarding at our site in Dunfermline, or also at Glasgow Wakepark, Foxlake Dunbar, Foxlake Dundee and the wonderful Loch Lomond Wakeboard at Ardlui (you can't beat the views!).
Opening times are Tuesday - Sunday 11am - 7pm.
