With over 10 years experience in the watersports industry Wake Wanaka offers professionally qualified boat drivers, wakeboarding instruction and coaching for all ages, from the first-time wakeboarder to the advanced rider.

We provide a custom designed 2015 Mastercraft wakeboard boat, fully certified and surveyed by Maritime New Zealand. With a selection of the latest equipment we ensure your friends and family will enjoy a unique day with us out on the lake.
Quality wakeboard coaching for all levels


At Wake Wanaka we recommend at least half an hour per person on the wakeboard. If there is just one person going in the water you are more than welcome to bring a friend. We recommend for 1-3 people having a lesson to book at least an hour, 2 hours for 5 people or a family and the half/full day for groups or functions.

Each trip includes all the equipment needed, wetsuits and life jackets that fit all sizes, wakeboards of all sizes, a wakesurfer, a wakeskate, towed inflatables and waterskis upon request. It also covers use of the boat, fuel, driver, full professional instruction and space to bring along friends and family (8 passengers max). Just bring your swimming costume, a towel, appropriate footwear and for trips of 2 hours or more, bring any food or drink your need to sustain you out on the water.
