Our Advanced Training Program is an intimate group training session run with an experienced coach on hand at all times. These training sessions are progression sessions focusing on skills required to excel in the sport. These sessions are designed for children who have "graduated from Kids Club" or have completed the basic introductions to wakeboarding and want to take it to the next level. The speed of the cable runs as per the speeds of our day to day running. Children must be competent wakeboarders and confident to be out on the water and make it back to the start dock on their own. Coaches may get out on the cable as a double hookup to get closer to the wakeboarders for some on water tips and tricks. Coaches focus on the level each child is currently at and work on skills to better their specific riding level. Progression is guaranteed! Bookings are essential - see our front desk.
