Tow ropes are always of the correct specification and our boat is kept in tip-top condition and maintained regardless of cost. There are always 2 people on the boat, the driver and the"spotter", who is there purely for your safety, and our drivers are all highly experienced Ski Boat captains with many years of experience under their belts. Everyone taking part in our activities is supplied and fitted with a complementary top quality 50N buoyancy aid and for your safety we will always withdraw events with immediate effect if unsuitable conditions develop.
We are always keen to get people out on the water and introduce them to the thrills of high adrenalin sports such as Wakeboarding, Water Skiing and Kneeboarding.
