Rules & Safety

The wake park is all about fun and helping riders to progress  techniques, learn new tricks and improve their riding. At the same time as being fun, we are also extremely safety conscious, all of our staff are fully trained and we have a rescue boat available.

There are a few basic SAFETY rules that apply to all riders, Please read the following carefully.

  • Always wear an impact vest and helmet
  • Always follow instructions from the operator
  • Users must be competent swimmers
  • Users must inform the wake park staff of any disabilities, injuries or health problems
  • Users must not be under the influence of alcohol or drugs


  • If you do not have your own equipment, we can provide you with wetsuits, buoyancy aids, helmets, wakeboards and bindings.
  • You need to bring a pair of flipflops or shoes with you. This is so you can walk safely from the changing rooms to the start dock.
  • We advise you bring your own towel and a pair of swim trunks to wear under your wetsuit.


  • Riding a System 2.0 can cause personal injury, use at your own risk. Only riders booked into the current session are allowed on the start dock
