Kids Boarding School

On the weekend of the Docklands Summer Festival, 18th and 19th May, we will run our first two Kids Boarding School sessions. This session is for children at all skill levels, from complete beginners to intermediate and advanced riders. Together with up to 7 other children in a 2 hour session, our instructors will teach the children how to wakeboard and give them coaching to improve their skills.

Only one person is on the cable at any time, which means the instructor fully focuses on the one person riding and gives 1:1 tuition.

Kids Boarding School is divided into 2 groups by age:

(Saturday 18th)Boarding School Snr: Age 14 to 17 years

(Sunday 19th)Boarding School Jnr: Age 8 to 13 years

Parents can sign up their children over the phone: 01-6643883 or through our online booking system.

Lunchtime Sets

With our new opening hours, we’ll see the start of lunchtime sets from Wednesday to Friday. As usual you will get a 15 minute set and you book into a half hour slot with up to 1 other person.

What better way to spend your lunch break!

We have changing rooms and showers on site to get ready for work after the set.
