We love teaching beginners how to waterski...
Our beginner waterski lessons are designed to get you off to a great start.
We offer one to one individual tuition from an experienced British Waterski Federation qualified coach - all you need to bring is swimwear and a towel. At our calm, sheltered lake we have everything else that you need.
Your family or friends can observe from the boat, sun terrace or the comfort of our Lakeside Brasserie.
Our waterski lessons are designed to give you the best chance of a successful start to your waterskiing. You'll need to book in advance, so we can tailor sessions to your personal needs. We do ask that participants are able to swim 25 metres.

Ski Boat Driver:
- Refresher Course
- BWSW Level 2 (SBD2)
Refresher driver is intended for those looking to grasp the basics of waterski boat driving and handling. It's a good introduction for those who want to get some time behind the wheel of a competition standard waterski boat - either prior to buying their own boat, or taking a formal BWSW course.
The Ski Boat Driver Award is a certificate of competence awarded by the BWSW designed for anyone who wishes to drive unassisted for wakeboarding or water skiing.
SBD2 is recognised as the benchmark qualification to drive a waterski or wakeboard boat at clubs in the UK and overseas. It is a first step on the route to qualification as a licensed waterski and wakeboard coach.
The SBD2 course comprises classroom, DVD and tuition.
There's a written and practical test which you must achieve the required standard.
You must be 16 years old.
For SBD2 you are required to be a member of British Wakeboard and Waterski and able to demonstrate competent boat driving.
