Wake Boarding Milton Keynes
MK is one of the UK’s largest cable wakeboard and water ski centres. Set in 180 acres of landscaped parkland it is just 3 minutes from the M1 Junction 14 in Milton Keynes; and with ample lakeside parking and facilities for all the family, it is the UK’s best place to wake board.
What Is Wakeboarding
Wakeboarding is a surface water sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water. It was developed from a combination of water skiing, snow boarding and surfing techniques.
The rider is usually towed behind a motorboat, typically at speeds of 17–24 miles per hour, depending on the water conditions, board size, rider’s weight, type of tricks, and rider’s comfort speed. This speed could also depend on the year, make, and model of the boat because some boats, which are not designed for wakeboarding, create a different size wake which the rider may not feel comfortable with. But a wakeboarder can also be towed by other means, including closed-course cable systems, winches, personal water craft, cars, and all-terrain vehicles.
Boards are buoyant with the core usually made up of foam or honeycomb mixed with resin and coated with fiberglass. Metal screws are inserted to attach bindings and fins.
Wakeboarding is done by both men and women at the competitive level, but they compete in separate categories. Women can do many complex wakeboarding tricks.
