How To Get Started

The most effective way to start is via one of the Water Skiing / Wakeboarding Schools. A qualified instructor will shorten the learning time with safety first and speed next. You can learn the basics in as little as 30 minutes.

Is It Easy?

Beginners start on a training boom which allows them to commence skiing at the side of the boat enabling close interaction with the instructor. Once this is mastered they progress to a short rope and handle attached to the boom and then onto a longer rope behind the boat. Ski Schools will provide all of the equipment you need.

Is It Expensive?

Beginning the sport is reasonably inexpensive for example an introductory lesson will cost from £30. From there an entry level set of skis will cost from £100 and an entry level wakeboard from £200. Unless you have friends or family with a speed boat this purchase will cost you from £5000 but with that investment comes more freedom.
