No experience required but those wanting to wakeboard should feel comfortable in the water and be able to swim.  All equipment provided: boards, dry suits and lifejackets.

Please note:  Dry suit sizes are not available for smaller kids, therefore, smaller kids may not be able to participate for their own safety & comfort with the water being on 12C. Even with dry suits, there is not guarantee that boarders will stay 100% dry.  You may want to bring a bathing suit for them to wear under the dry suit.  Some height restrictions.
