Wake Up! Wakeboarding Koh Phangan Thailand has just completed the purchase of a 2004 Mastercraft XSTAR. The X STAR is the top choice of pro riders and recognised as one of the best wakeboarding boats in the business.

The wake on this baby is huge, and with an inbuilt ballast system the wake can be adjusted from small ski wakes to huge wakesurfing wakes! Complete with awesome sound system and cool boxes, we are equipped for the best days entertainment possible out on the water.

Wake Up! Wakeboarding now has a new booking office for customers down in the Haad Rin area of Koh Phangan. Customers staying in Haad Rin can make bookings at the Backpackers Information Centre. We will arrange a pick up service to our location in Chaloklum and between your time on the boat, chill out and relax at our beach bar with Sauna and Spa area, we will take you back to your resort at the end of the day. For customers around the rest of the island, you can still book directly at our office in Chaloklum or via telephone and e mail.

2010 wakeboarding season starts!

The season has started finally. Monsoon is over and the water is calm again, giving great wakeboarding conditions in Chaloklum Bay.

We start the season with all new equipment and a newly painted boat with all new interior. We have a new O’brien natural 139 wakeboard, very easy to ride and great adaptability to all styles of riding. That coupled with CWB Zeus Hinge Tech bindings for the guys and Hyperlite Eden Bindings for the girls, give great control and support for all the carving and grabs you will be doing.

It’s great to be back on the water and I look forward to seeing all the regulars again, plus meeting all our new customers for the year! Lets hope the water stays flat and clear and the weather stays fine for an awesome season this year.

New wakeskates arrive

The sport of wakeskating is increasing in popularity exponentially. This might be due to the free feeling given by riding a board without any bindings, or maybe because it gives hard core skate boarders a way to try the toughest of tricks without having to eat concrete everytime they fall.

liquid_force2For the skater using the wake like your favorite half-pipe or bowl, the Liquid Force Armada, high-end compression molded skate is perfect for you. Molded-in fin channels add to the tracking capabilities and stability when going wake to wake. There is no substitute for the smooth release of our variable edge rails. The weight on this wakeskate has been updated allowing the board to stay with you easier in the air and stiffened the snap for even more control and response. Equipped with an aggressive rocker and contoured/kicked deck this skate will pop with you and take you where you want to go.
