Phuket wakeboarding parks afford an opportunity to enjoy a fun and extreme water sport away from the bustle of the beaches and in the safety of a carefully controlled environment. Cable water-skiing involves being towed at high speed around a circuit on a shallow lake. Where you would ordinarily have the unpredictability of the speedboat’s wake to contend with (hence the name ‘wakeboarding’), the cable system provides a similar, but safer and slightly more sanitised, experience.
Practising at one of these Phuket wakeboarding parks is certainly not a breeze however. The sport is easy to learn, but difficult to master, and you will inevitably fall over a lot. That said, the shallow water and simple layout make it easy to recover, so you can quickly restart and try again. It makes for a fun challenge that can be overcome with practise and experience. Once you’ve got that hard-earned experience you can add new challenges, like hitting ramps and rail grinds. Especially fun for kids, the following centres around the island make for a great family day out.
