Full description
Whatever your experience level, Lake Arenal is an ideal spot to learn or perfect your wakeboarding skills. You will be taught in the warm waters of Costa Rica’s oblong expanse under the shadow of the active Arenal Volcano. On good days you might see the volcano smoldering as you attempt to master your board, while wild monkeys chatter their approval in the surrounding trees. You will receive all necessary equipment from the wakeboard school, who can cater to all ages and skill sets. They use a classic Ski Nautique 2001 wakeboarding machine, famous for its great wakeboarding wake. If desired, they will add more than 1000 pounds of ballast to make the wake even bigger! Learning in a protected cove away from the wind, most people only need 5-10 minutes to get up on the board for the first time. Guides will take you through all the steps, from getting up on the board through the base inverts like backrolls, tantrums and air raleys. A 1-hour lesson can be divided between 4 people. However, it’s recommend that everyone takes two or three 20-minute wakeboard sets per person.
