Our Junior Riders sessions on the cable park are a great way to introduce young adrenaline seekers to the thrills of kneeboarding, water-skiing and wakeboarding! Junior Riders sessions run at a slightly slower speed than normal cable sessions to make it easier for smaller, lighter riders to get around the corners of the cable ski course. Sessions include instruction at the start of the session, plus all equipment hire. Sessions are for children aged 8-12 years that are competent swimmers (can swim 50 meters) children over 12 years are welcome to book on our normal full speed cable park sessions.
The first experience your child will have on the water will be learning to kneeboard.
Junior Riders Sessions normally takes place on a Saturday morning 9:00 – 11:00 am. These sessions are not available at the very beginning and end of the season. Sessions are very popular, and advance booking is required. For current session costs see our prices page.
Summer Holiday Junior Riders Sessions
During the school summer holidays we will be running additional Junior Riders sessions on a Thursday morning from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm midday (except Thursday 30th – the session will be Wednesday 29th) . Please book online for the summer holiday activity sessions.
Cutting Edge Awards
In addition to offering a fun environment for your child to learn and progress in the sports of wakeboarding and waterskiing, our cable operators are qualified to offer the British Waterski and Wakeboard (our National Governing Body) participation pathways Cutting Edge awards to enable your child to gain qualifications in the sport. If you are interested in this please mention it to one of our operators so that we can schedule the (informal) appraisals.
Once our Juniors have got started on a kneeboard and progressed onto a wakeboard, there is plenty of opportunity for them to start learning wakeboard tricks and enter our monthly Ten Feet High Series, where we have an Under 13 rookies category. There are also lots of other UK competitions. Some of our previous Juniors have gone on to be selected for the British Cable Wakeboard team, competing around Europe and the world!.
