A session will be 1 hour shared between upto 4 people giving you between 15 and 30 minutes on the water (Note, if you are the only person booked onto a session, the session will run for 30 minutes).

Call us on 0161 877 7252 to ride at Salford Wake Park.

Please arrive in plenty of time so you are ready to go out on the cable when it is your turn. (eg if you are booked in for a 11.00am session, arrive at 10.30am to get signed in, changed and to meet your operator)

Please note - If you have never been Wakeboarding before or it was a long time ago, then you must book onto a beginner lesson. This will teach you the basics and you will get riding the full length of the cable much quicker and with the correct technique, than if you just try to do it without a lesson." link
