Wakeboarding Membership…Understanding what you are get

At Lagoon Wake Park one of the best things we see is people learning, progressing and developing a real love for watersports. Our club has been set up to teach, encourage and support those learning a new sport whilst keeping the cost accessible.

As those of you that wakeboard know, it can become addictive, with you wanting to get on the water to ride as much as possible – which we can totally relate to.

We want you to get as much out of your membership as possible however we need to be realistic with you about how much wakeboarding you are likely to get within your membership.

We want you to be happy and make sure your expectations are realistic based on what we can offer you within your membership.

Many members get over 60 sessions a year. However we have set this scheme up to provide you with about 30 – 40 sessions a season. It is unrealistic to expect to be able to wakeboard every weekend or every day within our membership scheme.

We have designed some very simple rules to help make sharing the availability fair for all.

  • You may book up to 2 wakeboard ride slots per day
  • You may only book up to 4 wakeboard ride sessions in advance
  • Additional slots can be booked at a cost of £10 per session – These will be charged on arrival not at the time of booking.

To help people that are not able to commit in advance on Saturdays and Sunday we hold back 4 – 8 places, which are released on the day usually between 8am and 10am.

Guide to Cable availability

Saturday : Approximately 72 places are available
Sunday : Due to local laws we cannot open till 2.30pm – Approximately 44 places are available
Week day evenings from 5pm : 24 slots per night peak season, less will be availably as nights draw in
Week days : Varies depending on time of year from 24 – 62 per day

At certain times of the year you can almost guarantee most sessions will be booked up. Popular times include:

  • September and October after work sessions as it gets dark early
  • Weekends from Mid July – October

If you want to wakeboard at a specific time, particularly a popular time (eg autumn evenings) you will need to plan ahead and use the rules to suit you.

Cancellations

If you don’t show up for a session it is a wasted space for another member. It is important to cancel any sessions you cannot attend with as much notice as possible.

  • Cancellations must be made by 10am on the day of your booked session
  • Cancellations must be made using online system

No shows

If you do not show up for your session, the first time this happens we will turn a blind eye to it. After that you will not be able use the cable until you pay £15 for the missed session.

Ride session calendar

We are publishing a calendar of ride sessions for the entire season, right up until the end of November.

If you want a particular date then you are welcome to book it in advance. Just remember any advanced bookings are deducted from your allocation of booking 4 sessions in advance.

I can’t find a ride session

Contact us. If you don’t we can’t help. We can frequently find a way to get you wake boarding. But please note priority will always be given to those people that have ridden the least.

Understanding how the club works

Lagoon Watersports operates by offering tuition to the public, groups and hire (membership) in multiple activities. Not one activity or element is big enough to sustain the centre on its own. The success of the centre is based on multiple activities balancing the three elements of tuition, groups and hire.

Our success is based on introducing new people to watersports and providing a route for them to practice and progress in multiple watersports.

In practice this means members do not have sole use of the equipment or cables. There are times that you may not be gain access to equipment or cable time you want as it is being used for another part of the operation. We know you want to ride and we try and provide as much wakeboarding time as possible. But is important to understand the facilities are for the use of a wide range of customers and not just club members.
