Shawnigan Lake, BC Wakeboard School
Q) Do I need gear?
A) No, we have all the wakeboard & wakesurf gear in sizes to fit everyone.
Q) Does it need to be sunny?
A) No, cloudy days are great because there are usually fewer boats out making waves. Even a little rain is okay.
Q) Is it cold?
A) We have drysuits for the colder days. You wear your clothes underneath and stay warm and dry. Plus there is a heater in the boat.
Q) What if it's windy?
A) We all want to ride on flat water and there are a couple of spots on Shawnigan Lake that are usually calm that we can drive to, though this may take away from your riding time.
Q) Can I bring friends/family?
A) That's what makes it fun! Bring your friends and family to watch your wakeboard/wakesurf session at no extra cost.
Q) Can I wakeboard and wakesurf in the same session?
A) Yes, when your muscles get tired from wakeboarding, jump on the wakesurfer.
Q) Do you teach wakeskating?
A) I don't personally teach it, but I can bring in a pro rider, Tanner Champion, who can.
Q) Do I use a rope wakesurfing?
A) You start with a rope, then when you find the sweet spot on the wave you can let go and stay with the boat.
Q) Can I learn an invert?
A) Yes, after you have learned good wakeboarding basics an invert will wow your friends.
