Choosing the Perfect First-Time Wakeboarding Lesson at North Devon Wake Park

Welcome back to the North Devon Wake Park blog! If you’re new to wakeboarding or planning your first visit to our park, you might be wondering which wakeboarding lesson is right for you. At our park, we offer two fantastic options tailored to beginners: straight-line cable sessions and full-size cable sessions. Each offers a unique experience, and we’re here to help you decide which path to take for your wakeboarding debut.

Straight-Line Cable: The Ideal Start for Beginners

Our straight-line cable system is the perfect introduction to wakeboarding, especially if you’re looking for a more personalized approach. Here’s why:

Personalized 1-2-1 Coaching

  • Enjoy the undivided attention of our experienced instructors. With one-on-one coaching, the session moves at your pace, focusing on the basics of wakeboarding in a comfortable and supportive environment.

Private Lake Experience

  • Our straight-line cable runs over a private lake, ensuring a calm and controlled setting. This secluded environment not only enhances learning but also minimizes distractions, allowing you to focus solely on mastering the board.


  • Rapid Progression: The combination of personalized coaching and a distraction-free environment accelerates your learning curve.

  • Safety and Confidence: Newcomers often find the private lake setting less intimidating, making it easier to build confidence on the water.

Full-Size Cable: A Group Adventure

For those who prefer the camaraderie of learning in a group or are looking for a slightly more challenging start, our full-size cable system is an exciting option.

Group Fun

  • The full-size cable is ideal for groups. Whether you’re with friends or family, learning together adds an element of fun and encouragement that enhances the experience for everyone.

Wakeboarding and Kneeboarding

  • This system allows you to try both wakeboarding and kneeboarding. If you’re looking to diversify your water sports experience from the get-go, this is the place to be.


  • Social Learning Environment: Share the thrills and spills with a group, turning your learning experience into an unforgettable adventure.

  • Versatility: The opportunity to switch between wakeboarding and kneeboarding helps keep the experience fresh and exciting, especially for groups with diverse interests.

Which Lesson Should You Pick?

For Individual Focus: Straight-Line Cable

If you prefer a tailored learning experience where the focus is entirely on you, the straight-line cable system is your best bet. It’s also the recommended choice if you’re particularly nervous about trying wakeboarding for the first time.

For Group Fun: Full-Size Cable

If you’re visiting with a group or you’re up for a bit more of a challenge, the full-size cable offers a lively atmosphere. It’s a great way to make memories with friends or family while learning a new sport.


Regardless of which option you choose, our team at North Devon Wake Park is dedicated to making your first wakeboarding experience as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. Both the straight-line and full-size cables offer unique benefits, and we’re here to support you every step of the way. Ready to dive in?
