WAKESURF, WAKEBOARD & WAKESKATE
We have an amazing brand new boat – its an AXIS A24 which is just short of 25ft (larger than most other boats) and has a Corvette (yes, like the famous sports car) in it so its very powerful. It also throws a SERIOUSLY large wake so we can fine tune your wake to be big and clean or smaller if you are learning at the touch of a button. Most of our clients say we have the biggest, cleanest and best wake in the UAE so come see for yourself! We also have a capacity of 10 people and passengers ride free so bring your mates (for ballast too). Our boat has a PUMPING sound system so bring your riding tunes with you on USB and you can jam to some music while you ride.
Our gear is also brand new and in perfect condition. Our rates are some of the best you will find for the quality of operation we offer and the level of gear we have. We are also not stingy about time and you can credit time not taken for your next session. Bookings are available from dusk to dawn and the boat runs 7 days a week.
We also have an excellent wakesurf & wakeboard coach so lessons are available. Our staff are also stoked out and love the sport too, so will ride with and cheer you along if you need some encouragement – we get as stoked as you do!
Our location is a pristine private bay that is boat free and windproof.
The hotel lets watersports users in for free (conditions apply) and they also have a fully licensed facility where we get 15% off Food & Beverage so stick around for a cold one or a meal afterwards.
WHAT IS WAKE SURFING?
Wakesurfing is a water sport in which a rider trails very close behind a boat, riding the boat’s wake or wave without being directly pulled by the boat. This can only be done on a boat with an inboard engine as the propeellor is underneath the boat so the rider is safe from getting anywhere near the prop. After getting up on the wake, typically by use of a tow rope, the wakesurfers will drop the rope, and ride the steep face below the wave’s peak in a fashion reminiscent of surfing. There are specialized boats that make massive wakes (like ours) which make the wake. Riders seek out the biggest and cleanest wakes to ride.
WHAT IS WAKEBOARDING?
Wakeboarding is a surface watersport which involves riding a wakeboard (like a kiteboard or similar to a snowboard) over the surface of a body of water. The wakeboard is a small, mostly rectangular, thin board with very little displacement and shoe-like bindings mounted to it. It was developed from a combination of water skiing,. snowboarding and surfing techniques.
The rider is usually towed behind a motorboat typically at speeds of25–40 km/h (16–25 mph), depending on the board size, rider’s weight, type of tricks, and rider’s comfort. This speed could also depend on the year, make, and model of the boat because some boats, which are not designed for wakeboarding, create a different size wake which the rider may not feel comfortable with. Our boat creates a very big clean wake that is adjustable to the riders liking.
WHAT IS WAKE SKATING?
Wakeskating is a wake sport and an adaptation of wakeboarding that employs a similar design of board manufactured from maple or fiberglass but unlike wakeboarding, the rider is not bound to the board in any way. The board is not attached to you and looks like a giant skateboard deck. A lot of the tricks that riders perform, are a mix of skateboarding and wakeboarding moves.
It can be ridden on a big wake like as for wakeboarding or with a rope on the wake surf wave (super fun too).
