The Trampoline

We offer time for practicing all your moves on our Aussie Professional trampoline before you get out on the water. Let us know if you are interested and we'll arrange to meet with you before the lesson. The trampoline allows progression through repetition. This is the safest way to simulate wakeboarding off the water.

Why Paddle a Board on the Water?

It is a great total body exercise as well as it is fun for people of all physical ability levels. On flat water you can paddle around for leisure the same as you would a kayak. Also some new sports with paddle boards have arisen. SUP racing in some cases is done much the same way as a marathon or running event where they are organized as fun charity events and are not taken too seriously. In other cases they are incredible athletes competing in sanctioned events around the world. SUP Yoga is similar to what people know of Yoga classes in a gym or studio. However in this case it is done on the board in the water. SUP Yoga allows you to enjoy the excitement of exercising outdoors and around water.
