Wakeboarding Fun at Singapore Wake Park

[ Media Invite ]

We were introduced to some wakeboarding fun at Singapore Wake Park.

For newbies (aka us), “wake boarding” consists of two words. Board is the platform which you stand on and Wake is the waves created by motorboat, except there is no motorboat at East Coast Park lagoon šŸ™‚

As we walked towards Singapore Wake Park, anticipation grip us as we could see folks having fun in the lagoon.

Singapore Wake Park utilised a cable-ski system instead of motorboat to pull you along, generating the same adrenaline kick. More details about cable-ski here.

Located at East Coast Park (next to Hawker centre), this lagoon is now a wake boarding site surrounded by lush greenery.

Grab your helmet and life jacket, leave the fancy (professional) surf boards alone, they belong to the regulars.

All Singapore Wave Park users need to sign a Liability Waiver Form before we can play in the lagoon šŸ™‚

The lagoon is split into two sections, one for beginners (System 2) and the other is for (Full size cable). Both cable will pull you along, beginner’s speed can be adjusted and instructors will be on hand to guide you.

The smaller ones can start with knee board, which will give them a sense of the “pull and jerk” while maintaining their balance.

All the kids fare better than me, as I could not even balance pass the first set of cone! Of course I did not admit my balancing sucks, but I told the kids they are good because they always practice with skate board and scooters :p

One advantage of Cable ski systems is you can literally wakeboard day and night (motorboat wakeboarding might be dangerous in the evening).

Sashaying like a model on catwalk? We definitely had a lot of laughter and fun as we cheer each other on!

The board can be taller (and bulky) than the kids, and sometimes they might have problem pulling themselves out of the water, I would recommend one parent to be on standby to help the kids.

You will be hungry after all the splashing, head over to Coastal Rhythm for some tasty finger food. Our overall favourite is actually the Nicoise salad, fresh and crunchy. Kids love Mac ā€˜nā€™ Cheese (Boon Xin picture below).

We have been talking about Beginner on the System 2 so far. To promote to the “Full-Size cable”, you must be successful three times consecutively on the System 2. No one is talking about flips and sommersaults yet…

We hope you will have better luck (and balance) than us.

  1. Recently we’ve been to East Coast Park and seeing little kids wakeboard/skate-boarding just brought the kid out in me. Now I can’t wait for my little one to be older so that we can try all these things! It has been awhile since I was adventurous.
