©2019 Ullswater Wake & Surf. Built by Big Hundred


Wakesurfing is an off-shoot of wakeboarding. 

It's a surface watersport where a rider trails behind a boat, riding the boat's wake without being directly pulled by the boat.


After getting up on the boat's wake (normally by use of a tow rope) wakesurfers then drop the rope and 'surf' the wake waves.


Wakesurfing uses special boards, designed specifically for wakes.

useful info...
How long are sessions, and do I need to book in advance?

A normal wakesurf session will be 30 minutes.

Please book in advance. If you are planning on booking a block of sessions, please ask about our multi-session deals!

who can do it?

Wakesurfing can be done by anyone. There's no real age limit but we like to suggest that  8 years old is a good age for children to start learning. For children 4-7 years old we offer the Dolphin Rider as a first experience.

Can i make a group booking?

We can take up to 6 people on our wakesurfing boat.

Can my family come and watch?

We can take up to 6 people on our wakesurfing boat - this can be a mix of people including spectators and wakeboarders if you choose. Or it can be all wakesurfers. The choice is yours.

what gear do i need?

We have everything you'll need from westuits to boards to bouyancy aids. All equipment is included in the price of your session. All we recommend is that you bring your 'swimmies' and towel to get dry afterwards!

Where can I Park

We are based at Waterside House Campsite here where you will find plenty of parking available.

WHERE can I get changed?

We are based at Waterside House Campsite where there are changing and shower facilities available.

Weather questions...

We wakesurf in all weathers! The only time we will cancel a session is if we regard the conditions as dangerous. You can find out more about our cancellation policy here.

Can we stay nearby?

Yes, very close! We are based at Waterside House Campsite right on the water's edge - it's an ideal base for exploring the Lakes. There's camping, glamping, Tipi and Pod hire available.

There are also lots of places to stay in the Lake District see here.
