Taster Courses Development Packages

Taster Course

3 X 15 minute sessions in one morning

Designed for those looking to take up waterskiing or wakeboarding, the Taster Course offers beginners a first-time skiing experience in a safe and supportive environment, ensuring you are given the instruction, guidance and encouragement you need to get started.

Suitable for all ages, including children (from 4 years old), you are first introduced to water safety, body position and basic techniques on dry land. Once you are confident that you have grasped the basics, your coach will take you out on to the water using a static boom, which not only provides stability, but also allows you to remain in close contact with your instructor. Once you have mastered getting up out of the water, the basic skiing position and technique, you will progress on to the long line to ski behind the boat.

The Taster Course gives you the opportunity to really get a feel for the sport and with 3x15mins sessions in one morning you will definitely see progress and start to feel at home on the water.
