Wakeboarding

Image of wakeboardingWakeboarding is the fastest growing board sport in the world today, and Glasgow University Wakeboarding Club gives you the opportunity to join in with all the fun.

We do two types of wakeboarding in our club:

  • Wakeboarding behind a power boat at Loch Lomond, and
  • We use a the System 2.0 cable at Glasgow Wake Park, involving being pulled by a zip wire and obstacles in the water to try.

Whether you are a newbie looking to start a fun new hobby, or an experienced rider, this is the club for you.

Competing

There are a few big competitions throughout the season we take part in, mainly UniWake Student Nationals down in Sheffield, and Loch Stock – a weekend of partying, coaching from pro-riders, and a big competition at Loch Lomond.

Last year we also hosted Celtwake – a competition between Scottish Universities, which was a great weekend, and Glasgow also cleaned up being the overall winners. 

Training

Thanks to Glasgow Wake Park, Scotland’s first urban wake park, opening a mere subway journey away, we have great training facilities close by. Here, you are always under full coaching by qualified instructors, as well as all equipment hire being available at great student deals. Glasgow Wake Park is a great place to hang out, watch others ride and create new friends as well as learning some sweet new tricks. We also have the beautiful Loch Lomond an hour away, where we run regular trips. A car load of people can then go out on a boat with the Loch Lomond Wakeboard School – and you really cannot beat riding behind a boat in such a beautiful location.

Joining

We welcome people of any level – whether you are a pro, or have never seen a wakeboard in your life. We regularly hold socials, where you can hang out and make new friends. So, whether you just want to come hang out and chat, or look to be throwing some tantrums at a national competition, we welcome you!
