Wakedock’s Best Trick Competition

At 3pm each day, our friends in Wakedock will be hosting a one hour wake boarding session. There will also be half an hour of free sessions available each day for spectators to give it a go! The Wakedock Cable wakeboarding on System 2.0 is the perfect way for beginners to learn how to wakeboard and for intermediate and advanced riders to improve their riding.

How does cable wakeboarding work?

Essentially, the wakeboard cable replaces the boat and pulls the rider along a course. The System 2.0 that is installed in the Grand Canal Dock has two towers and one rider uses the cable on their own and can continuously ride along the course between the two towers.

Because there is only one person on the cable, it means that if they fall, the operator can drive the handle back to them and they can get up again right there. There is no need to swim to the quayside or back to the start platform. That means the rider gets maximum ride time on the cable!
