Wakeboard Lessons at Wake Nation Cincinnati
Wake Nation Cincinnati (WNC) is Ohio’s premier wakeboarding school and cable park. WNC offers wakeboard lessons, wakesurf lessons, and wakeboard camps with our award-winning instructors.
Know anyone that quit snowboarding after a single try? We sure do, and we are here to say that when it comes to our favorite water sport, it won’t happen on our watch! With students of all skill levels, ranging from ages 3 to 84 (no kidding), all you need is a willing attitude, and we’ll handle the rest.
At WNC, we provide wakeboard lessons on the boat and on our cable systems for all skill levels – from your very first time, all the way up to planning your latest contest run. We have no preference what tool we use to teach, however, unless you are at the point where you are ready to jump the wake (a one wake jump or above), or learning to wakesurf, you will benefit much more from a cable lesson. The learning curve is cut down substantially and there is no faster, better, or safer way to learn. Nearly all first-timers and children under the age of 10 learn on the two-tower cable system. A typical first-time lesson will take 1 hour per person. For children under the age of 10, plan ahead to ensure the weather is warm so it’s a perfect first-time experience!

Private 1 Hour Cable Lesson $99
A private, one on one cable lesson is perfect for that first-timer/never-ever rider that is just starting out, or anyone needing to brush up on their wake skills. This lesson is also great for advanced riders learning jumps and features, air tricks, and show-stopping start variations. With a proven teaching program and the latest in 2-way helmet microphone/speakers, we’ll have you shredding in minutes, and have you smiling along the way. Includes equipment. To avoid disappointment, reservations are highly encouraged.
Private 2 Hour Cable Lesson $179
An extended private cable lesson that is great for groups of 2, up to 3, or any single person with a ton of energy to burn. Includes equipment. To avoid disappointment, reservations are highly encouraged.
Main Cable Start & Turn Lesson (Main Cable 101) $69
You must already know how to wakeboard to attend this lesson. The start & turn lesson on our main cable is comprised of a 1 hour lesson, and a 2 hour ride session. It is only offered at 11am, or one hour before we open to the public, and we have up to a 6 person capacity. This is the next step for those that already know how to ride and control their wakeboard on a boat or 2 tower cable. It’s also a great refresher for those that haven’t ridden the main cable in some time, or have unsuccessfully tried cable wakeboarding in the past. During the lesson, we slow the main cable down so we can safely, quickly, and easily teach you how to start off the main dock, and also make the turns throughout the main cable course. Once you have a few starts under your belt, and are shredding, you can continue to ride and practice for the first 2 hours of operations, during what we call, our practice sessions*. During our practice sessions (daily, the first 2 hours of operations), we run the cable a little bit slower so you can learn and practice your skills while speeding up the learning curve. Includes equipment. Reservations are required for all start & turn lessons.
*Once you can safely ride the main cable, you can simply show up and shred the main cable whenever you like, no additional reservations or lessons are needed. Although it’s not required, a good time to ride on your next 2-3 occasions, is during our practice sessions when the main cable is little bit slower.
The Zero to Hero Package $229
The Zero to Hero package is designed to take you from your current skill level to ABSOLUTE SHREDDER by the end of the Summer. At a radical savings off our retail prices (these items would cost you nearly $600 to buy incrementally) our goal is to get you SHREDDING and build confidence quickly! All lessons must be completed by the end of the season. Includes equipment. Same reservation policies apply to each lesson, however ride sessions do not require a reservation. This package includes:
- Three (3) Private 1 Hour Cable Lessons
- One (1) Main Cable 1 Hour Start & Turn Lessons
- Three (3) 2-Hour Cable Ride Sessions (It’s not required, but it’s best to ride/progress during our practice sessions.)
- All Rental Equipment Needed
Private 1 Hour Boat Lesson $139
A private, one on one boat lesson is perfect for that first-timer/never-ever wakesurfer, or that wakeboarder wanting to learn tricks (a one wake jump or above). Our private boat location is 10 minutes from our cable park. Includes equipment. Reservations are required.
Private 2 Hour Cable Lesson $269
An extended boat lesson that is good for groups of 2, or anyone with a ton of energy to burn. Includes equipment. Reservations are required.
Lessons on Your Boat $79/Hour (2 Hour Minimum)
Wake Nation instructors can come to your location too! Whatever you are working on, and whatever the size of the group, we’ll get you shredding in no time, and likely have a hand free to snap some killer pictures and videos! To cover the cost of payroll and fuel, we charge a nominal fee of $25/hour drive time, in addition to the lesson time. Let us know if you need equipment. Reservations are required.
Private 1 Hour Trampoline Lesson $29
If you are working on your first inverts or spins, a great step is to learn them on the trampoline and master them before attempting on the water. Not only is this safer, but it speeds up the learning curve – especially for “tech” tricks, multiple handle passes, and mobe variations. Or just have some fun for an hour and bounce to the moon! Includes trampoline socks. To avoid disappointment, reservations are highly encouraged.
