Wakeboarding Experiences UK 

with Greatest Gifts.    

Watersports in the UK is so popular these days and Wakeboarding in UK locations is certainly one of the most thrilling ways to enjoy the delights of the sport.  This marvellous mixture of Water-Skiing, Snowboarding and Surfing has been enjoyed by millions for about 30 years and is now one of the fastest growing watersports in the UK. It is a fast, thrilling experience and certainly not for the faint-hearted.  The wakeboarder is towed behind a motorboat or by cable systems at around 20mph (32km/h), but this can go up or down depending on such factors as the rider's weight, water conditions, the rider's experience etc. The boards are usually made of a foam and resin material for light weight and good buoyancy. They are then coated with fibre glass and finished off in some fantastic colours and wonderfully artistic designs. The boards come in various sizes but generally the smaller ones tend to be lighter and also spin faster but are thought to be harder to control on landing. On the other hand the larger boards are usually thought to be a bit slower but have a much smoother ride and are a bit easier to control on landing. Boards with narrow tips and tails tend to sit somewhat lower in the water and also lead to more aggressive turns. Boards made with wider tips and tails allow the rider to perform more surface tricks and also allow much improved release for spins off the wake. Under the board there are various fin set ups. There are Long Based Fins, Moulded Fins, Multi Fins, Cupped Side Fins, Canted Side Fins and some riders prefer no fins at all. The closer these fins are to the centre of the board the better and faster the wakeboard will release from the wake.
For the complete novices there are various Introductory Wakeboarding Experience Days available which enable those taking part to learn quickly and yet in a safe environment. Learners usually start off "knee boarding" to get the hang of things before progressing to the normal standing position. Also available are Wakeboarding Experiences for two or more that makes it all the more fun!
