Looking to take the kids wakeboarding? Here’s our comprehensive list of the best (mostly kid-friendly) places to wakesurf or wakeboard in Singapore! From Singapore Wake Park to wakeboarding in the open sea, these spots offer lessons for the family!

If you’re a thrill-seeker or just looking to try something new, wakeboarding in Singapore is a fun sport that keeps you cool in the scorching heat! We might not be able to surf off our coastline but did you know that Singapore is one of the few places in the world where you can wakeboard all year round? So why not gather your family, learn how to wake board or wake surf, and plan a fun day out at sea? Or start small and go wakeboarding at the Singapore Wake Park which is an enclosed space and less scary than being out in the open water for newbies. Who knows, you might just find your next hobby!

How old do kids need to be to be able to wakeboard?
It’s always advisable to be water confident before doing any sports in the open water – so as long as your child can swim well and can follow instructions they should be good to wakeboard or wake surf. Different wake board centres have different minimum age requirements so always call ahead. You will be wearing a life jacket when wakeboarding in the open seas as well as in the sheltered lagoon wake space at Singapore Wake Park at East Coast.

Wakesurfing vs wakeboarding in Singapore
The key difference between wakeboarding and wakesurfing is that for wakeboarding, your feet are strapped onto the board and you hold onto a boat-towed rope or a cable skiing style rope (eg at Singapore Wake Park) throughout the duration of the ride. In wakesurfing, your feet are not strapped in but you balance on a board and eventually will release the rope to ride out or ‘surf’ a wake.

Ready to get planning? Here’s where to go wakesurfing and wakeboarding in Singapore:

1. Dream Wake Academy: Stylish boats, great wake surfing lessons

Dream Wake Academy have some dreamy boats (top of the range, very swish if you ask us!) to take you out wake surfing! There are a few wakesurf instructors to choose from (with different boat capacities). We can personally vouch for Head Instructor Oliver (an international competitive wake surf pro). Oliver is super patient with newbies —hey it’s tough getting up that first time but once you get it, your body remembers and it’s such a thrill to surf on the wake. We loved the speaker system Coach used to communicate instructions to us while out on the water ensuring we could really advance minute to minute. We took two kids (aged 11 and 9) and both managed to get up and wakesurf, and even drop one hand (the next stage is dropping the rope and surfing the wake from the boats— that’s for our next trip)!

How much: from $200/hr (boats can take a group of 6-8 pax however for maximum time on the waves they advise around 4 pax).
