Wakeboard at Wakestock UK This Summer

Share 

Wakestock UKAre you coming to Wakestock this summer? Fancy having a go at wakeboarding whilst you’re at the festival? Glasfryn Wake Parc is open throughout the Wakestock weekend and offers both beginners and more experienced riders an easy, cheap and fun way to get out on the water.

Glasfryn Wake Parc is situated just 15 minutes away from the Wakestock festival site and is the perfect place for festival goers to try their hand at wakeboarding. Glasfryn will be running direct buses every hour from the festival site to the lake, so getting there from your tent couldn’t be simpler. All equipment is included in the price and the bus will bring you back to the festival site after your session. Places to ride are limited so recommend booking in advance to guarantee your slots.

Glasfryn Wake Parc uses three System 2.0 Wakeboard Cables, the same system as used on the pool gap at the festival site, to tow riders up and down their purpose built lakes. One of the System 2.0’s is designed for beginners and runs at a shorter length of 100m and is 10m high meaning beginners get a great upward pull. You cannot fail to learn to wakeboard using this setup!

For the more advanced riders there are six obstacles on the lakes – brand new wall rides, the Leviathan, two kickers and a flat bar. Combined with ollie barrels and the ability to learn air tricks very easily, Glasfryn Wake Parc is truly a venue for every standard of wakeboarder from first timer to seasoned pro.

The venue at Glasfryn Wake Parc is stunning and set on the picturesque Llyn Peninsula, the lakes are surrounded by tall trees meaning no matter how windy it is the lake is always perfectly calm. The clean water is fed by streams coming straight down from the mountains and the site boasts great facilities including changing rooms, showers, club house, licensed bar, cafe and much more. There are also many other activities like go karts, quad bikes and ten pin bowling so you can really make a day of it.

Glasfryn Parc was the first cable wake park to open in Wales and opened in July 2010. Located on the A499 Caernarfon to Pwllheli road, Glasfryn Wake Parc is easily accessible – the postcode is LL53 6PG.

For further information about the Wake Parc and to book your session, please email wakeboard@glasfryn.co.uk or call 01766 810202. You can also check out their website www.glasfryn.co.uk.
