Wakeboard and Wakesurf 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 wakeboard coaches.
Know anyone that quit snowboarding after one try? We sure do, and we are here to say that when it comes to wakeboarding and wakesurfing, it won’t happen on our watch! Developed over several years, our wakeboard instruction program is one of the best in the industry. From learning the first-day basics in the best possible learning environment to coaching you through advanced jumps, inverts, and spins, to wakeboard training and preparing you for a contest, our professional wakeboard coaches can ensure you learn safely and in a fun environment. 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.
Wakeboard Lesson Details
Reservations are required for all wakeboard lessons. Be sure to show up at least 30 minutes early for the appropriate paperwork and equipment fittings.
At WNC, we provide wakeboard lessons on the boat and on our cable systems. We have no preference, however, unless you are at the point where you are ready to jump wake to wake (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 or safer way to learn. Nearly all first timers and children under the age of 10 learn on a two-tower cable system. A typical first-time lesson will take 1 hour per person. For children under the age of 10, plan on 90 minutes and plan ahead to ensure the weather is warm.
If you are starting at square one in the learning process, plan on a two (2) step program to get to ride the full size cable system. This program can be completed in as few as 2 lessons, and is on a case by case basis, based on your skill level and comfort level riding.
Step one (1). Learn to wakeboard. Get comfortable riding the wakeboard. This is typically a lesson.
Step two (2): Once you learn how to ride and control your wakeboard, the next step is to prepare you to ride independently. That next step is a “start and turn” lesson, offered before we open the main cable each weekday, from 11am to 12noon. This lesson allows us to slow the main cable down, and teach you the main cable “start” and also how to navigate the “turns” on the full size cable system. We can do this without holding up the line for others during our normal open ride times. Should you do well in the “start and turn” lesson, with instructor approval, you can continue to shred on your own for up to 2 hours after your lesson (weekdays only).
Step three (3): Once you can ride, start, and turn on the full size system, you can simply show up to Wake Nation, no reservation or lesson needed. Buy a normal cable ticket and shred as much or as often as you would like. Be safe, ride within your capabilities, and have fun!
For those that have a larger family or group, be sure to check out our group events in Cincinnati page. All cable and boat group options come with the same great wakeboard instructors you would have in any of our other wakeboard lessons.
