Wakeboarding is a bit like skateboarding but on water. The boys love it, the girls love it. It is great fun and relatively easy. Still not sure? Why not pop down to Hove Lagoon and take a look or have a look at the video further down this page.
We start wakeboarding courses from age 10 upwards. We offer private lessons for kids age 8 upwards. The Kids BWSW Bronze Award course is the perfect way to learn to wakeboard and using the BWSW Cutting Edge programme our professional BWSW instructors will soon have them up and riding the cable wakeboarding system.
This course usually runs over 2 x 2 hours sessions shared between 3 kids. This may sound short but we promise they will be shattered by the end.
At the end of the course they will be able to wakeboard and should be ready to attend our kids wakeboard club.

When you make a booking with us we assign staff and equipment to deliver the booking. That means we are unable to offer that space to anyone else.
If you cancel that space we are likely to incur a loss. We will have already made commitments to staff and we may have turned away other bookings. We are unable to get insurance that covers us for this loss.
We therefore do not offer refunds for cancellations. If we did not do this we would have to put up our prices for everyone.
Our cancellation policy applies in all circumstances including no shows, illness, relocation, transport failure and bereavement.
Course Cancellation InsuranceYou can take out insurance to cover the cost of your course against cancellation through CancelSure. Guide cost is £12 for the first £100 of cover and then £6 per additional £100 of cover.
