Our beachclubs have British Water Ski and Wakeboard (BWSW) 'Accredited Ski School' status, ensuring optimum safety and superb tuition through all levels.


Grab your gear, there's a choice of monoskis, slalom skis, wakeboards, wakeskates and children's skis (there's also some wetsuits) and hit the water. Using our outboard boats and inboard Ski Nautique boats our instructors will help you get started or give you top tips to nail the elusive wake jumps or flips you've been practising.

Water skiing and wakeboarding is available at the following beachclubs: Alana in Croatia, Retreat, Vounaki, Messini, Buca, and Portomyrina Palace in Greece. You can also have a go at wakesurfing (for a small supplement) at Alana Beachclub in Croatia, Retreat or Vounaki Beachclubs in Greece.

 

NEW - Wakesurfing

Wakesurfing is a new and exciting watersport that's taking the wakeboarding scene by storm. Not one to miss out, we've invested in some of the best boats out there, the Super Air Nautique GS20, which is ideal for wakesurfing.

Flip a switch and water is pumped into the hulls of the boat to provide ballast, which in tun produces a big wake off the back of the boat for you to 'surf'. Once you're up, you use the wave to propel yourself forwards rather than using the pull from the boat as in wakeboarding or water skiing.

If you haven't tried wakesurfing yet, you're missing out. Come and see what the fuss is all about at Alana Beachclub in Croatia, Retreat Beachclub in Greece and Vounaki Beachclub in Greece, we'll get you up for the first time on a wake surf board or to your first lip slide, cutbacks or 360 spin! This activity can only be booked locally (for a small charge) and is subject to availability.

Inclusive water skiing and wakeboarding

You’ll get up to two free tows per week (weather conditions permitting), so if you’ve never tried water skiing or wakeboarding before, there’s really no excuse. It’s a real buzz and we’re pretty sure you won’t regret it, you’ll be signing up for your next tow straight away.

 

If you catch the bug and still have energy for more, give the beginner, intermediate and advanced upgrade packages a go. Tailored for beginners to experts, they’re based around the British Water Ski and Wakeboard (BWSW) qualifications and can be pre-booked before you travel.

For beginners

If you’re new to water skiing and wakeboarding, book yourself onto the British Water Ski and Wakeboard (BWSW) bronze award package. You’ll be learning the basics, getting up, going along, and crossing the wake. Your confidence behind the boat and in the water will grow and grow.  

The bronze award package for beginners is available in most of our beachclubs (with the exception of Airone in Italy, Baia dei Mori in Sardinia and Aeolian Village or Cosmos in Greece). You’ll get six 15-minute tows for just £150 per person.

Don't miss out, we recommend you pre-book before you go to guarantee yourself a place on the bronze package.

For intermediates

Feeling pretty confident you can get back on your feet when you wipe out? Are you able to cross the wake both ways?  Sign up to the intermediate pack and work towards your Silver BWSW award. Think deep-water starts and plenty of speed. Available at most beachclubs (except Airone in Italy, Baia dei Mori in Sardinia and Aeolian Village or Cosmos in Greece), the silver award for intermediate level water skiing and wakeboarding is priced at £150 per person and you’ll get six 15-minute tows.

The silver award is always popular, you don't want to miss out, we recommend you pre-book before travel to save your place.

For advanced

Show off your advanced skills. If you’re a water skier you'll be practising slalom skills. Wakeboarder's - get to grips with your Gold BWSW award and you’ll make it look so easy, tweaking out method grabs like there’s no tomorrow.


You'll need the best conditions and kit, so head to Retreat or Vounaki Beachclubs if this is for you (£150 per person for six 15-minutes tows). Guarantee your tows and don't miss out, the gold award is available to pre-book before you set off on holiday, 

Friends and family time

Get the whole family or a group of friends together (max. four people) for some family ski time. One of the bonuses of this package is that you’ll get exclusive use of one of the ski boats plus an instructor for a total of three hours. You’ll have those ollies and back rolls down in no time! Witness first hand (and close up) those first steps on the bar, first carves, wipe outs, tricks and grabs as they happen.


If this sounds like your kind of fun, book a water sports holiday to Retreat or Vounaki Beachclub and for £400, you’ll have a great time plus plenty of laughs. Availability is limited, so we recommend you pre-book this package before you travel.

Children who can already water ski or wakeboard can join in with any of our regular free sessions (up to two free tows per person per week) or can upgrade to the bronze, silver, gold or family upgrade packages.
