Sport Sheffield | The University of Sheffield

Wakeboarding

Wakeboarding is the sport of riding on a short, wide-board that resembles a surfboard and performing acrobatic manoeuvres while being towed behind a cable-tow or motor boat. It is a water sport that combines elements of water-skiing, snowboarding and surfing.

Location
In Sheffield, we are fortunate enough to have one of the best full-size cable wake parks in the UK right on our doorstep! Exclusive discounts for our members (all equipment provided) and an easy £1 journey on the bus make regular wakeboarding trips affordable for any student - an ideal place to progress in the sport.

About the Club
The University of Sheffield Wakeboarding Club (SheffWake) is here for both experienced and inexperienced shredders! Founded in 2015, we are already well-established as one of the most thrilling extreme sports club within the Union and guarantee a great time. We aim to promote wakeboarding and provide opportunities for all students who are interested in wakeboarding and similar sports to develop rad skills.
