FAQ's: South Side Wakeboarding School
Q: Am I ready for wakeboarding lessons?
A: Yes.. The best possible time to get a
wakeboarding lesson is at the VERY beginning. It avoids learning bad habits and having to break them later. But anytime is going to help advance your riding whether you are wanting to get up, jump the wake or do your first invert!
Q: What do I need to bring?
A: Just yourself.. We supply
jackets. However, if you have your own gear definitely bring that along as it helps to learn on your own equipment. Even if you do bring your own gear you may choose to test out some of our school products from leading brands such as:
Jet Pilot and
Q: How far from Adelaide is South Side Wakeboard School?
A: South Side

White Sands Caravan Park on the outskirts of
Murray Bridge.. From Adelaide it is only approximately a 45 minute drive. See the Directions page for more info.
Q: Can I come and get a lesson by myself?
A: Yes, for sure.. We will try to pair you up with some other riders. Or if not we will just let you chill out and take a rest between sets.
Q: Can I bring a friend along who isn't riding?
A: Yes, no problem. You are welcome to bring a friend or family members along for the ride. This will also help teach you as they can identify problems in your riding and help correct them when out riding later.
Q: Can you come and do lessons in our boat at our place?
A: Yes.. We do lessons up and down the Murray River in South Australia. We can either come to your place for a half-day or full-day session. This way you can have as many or few people in the boat as you like! See the Wakeboard Lessons and Prices pages to get more information.
Q: The lesson is for 1 hour!? I don't think I can ride that long.
A: The lessons are broken down in to 2 x 30 minute sets.. You ride your first set then get a break between that and your second set.
Q: I'm not sure if I can even ride for 30 minutes!
A: We want you to learn as much as possible while you are with us, it isn't like when you go for a regular wakeboard and ride continuously. We will be suggesting new things to try while you are out there.. So it may mean you will fall off a lot more than usual BUT this also means you will be learning new skills!
