Few water sports are as exciting as wakeboarding. Developed on the heels of the snowboarding craze, wakeboarding involves riding a wakeboard usually with fins and boots for the feet pulled by a boat at speeds of around twenty miles per hour. The wakeboard rider uses techniques of waterskiing, snowboarding and surfing to cut across the wake of the motorboat and jump into the air and performing acrobatics on the board much like a snowboarder.
In England, there are excellent areas to pursue the sport of wakeboarding. One such location that affords excellent conditions for this sport is Ellingham Water Ski & Wakeboard Club. Those new to the sport can learn on a large coastal lake just outside of Poole where wakeboarding lessons are given for those from the novice to the professional level. Once the instruction is complete wakeboarders can head for the open water just off the beach for more exhilaration from this exciting sport.
Poole Ski Lane in Poole Harbour is another area that has excellent conditions for wakeboarding. Located in the south of Britain, Poole Harbour is perfect for the pursuit of water sports. Wakeboarding is no exception. There are many days when the wind is low and wakeboarders abound. There are also times where the wind is up and you would be better to find a local Lake that offers wakeboarding. As Choppy seas are not ideal for Wakeboarding, When it’s windy you are much better off finding a lake or even better take up Kitesurfing at a local Kitesurfing shop that offers Kitesurfing Lessons.
