Special offer Wakeboarding Holidays in May and June

Five days of wakeboarding and waterskiing for £495 including accommodation

The sun is out in France and England and we are thinking about our wakeboarding holidays this year. At Adventure St Tropez we have some busy weekends already booked for May and June, so this gives us an opportunity to offer a very special 5 day wakeboarding holiday. Arriving Sunday and leaving Friday the flight prices should be reasonable. We are offering accommodation on the marina, with lovely swimming pool, beachside accommodation and three sets of wakeboarding a day.

The Gulf is particularly good for wakeboarding holidays in May and June as there are few boats on the water and the busy season is still a couple of months away. There is nothing to beat an early morning set in water where you can view the sandy bottom through crystal clear sea.  Plus of course the added bonus of that early season tan. What could be better than following that early morning set with a marina continental breakfast croissants, coffee and some yummy patisseries. All well deserved of course.

If you are travelling alone or on a budget we will make sure you can get to us either by our own mini-bus transfer or public transfer. Both methods are available from Nice or Toulon airport.

To perfect your wakeboarding holiday the social scene is great. With St Tropez just across the water, excellent restaurants, beach bars (with great atmosphere) plus a bunch of like-minded enthusiatic wakeboarders you are bound to have a great time.

Wakeboarding France

The wakeboard season is here but in the UK we are still in shock at the air and water temperature. Luckily we will be heading to the south of France in a months time to begin our Wakeboarding France season. So some of you guys may consider a trip to France as being the nearest and most accessible place to find warmer waters. Flights to Nice and Toulon are extremely reasonable in May and June. Always give us a call on 01736761838 we have up to date recommendations.

We offer boat tow and the freedom of long sets and patient training.  We begin our Wakeboarding France season in the Gulf of St Tropez on 9th May.  At that time of year we benefit from quiet waters especially in the mornings. Traditionally the Gulf is completely flat early in the morning before the warm sea breezes come up, and other boats arrive on the scene. We are qualified instructors and specialize in teaching beginners and helping intermediates to progress. Early season is an ideal time to come. More time on the water as the flatter conditions prevail for longer. We have the time to dedicate to getting you going, and improving those rusty skills.

You will find a warm and sunny welcome in the Gulf of St Tropez.

How to Wakesurf
Wakesurfing and Wakeboarding in the South of France

Wakesurfing is the sport where Surfing and Wake boarding meet. It is possible to ride an endless wave created from the wake of a powerboat.  And the bigger the wake the bigger the wave. In this sport the handle becomes less important, except when getting out of the water – shown below in the five stages. Getting on to the board is slightly more difficult because there are no bindings and timing and balance are needed, plus of course a good boat driver!  Once the board is planing the feeling is very similar to surfing.You need to concentrate on balancing without tension on the line and being more fluid in the knees and ankles to control the wake surf.

Great fun and challenging, we all enjoy this sport at Adventure St Tropez, it is one of our favourites along with wakeboarding which we can’t get enough of.

Here’s how to do it….

  1. First position the board horizontally in front. Place your heels over the board, nearside of centre line so that when standing, your feet will assume a surfing stance, centrally on board. The offset heel placement will raise the front edge of the board so that when the power is applied, the resistance will push the board to your feet and the grip deck will keep it positioned.
  2. Keep tension in the line while sculling with one hand, tucking body close to the board, keeping pressure on the heels.
  3. Place both hands on handle and when the power comes on keep knees tucked close to chest and pull your body over the board keeping knees bent, weight even.
  4. Immediately stand, moving weight slightly to back foot and knees bent in surfing stance.
  5. Release back hand and give a little toe edge to follow boat. Keep knees bent and focus on balance….you’re wakesurfing – Happy Boarding!

The technique is virtually the same as Wake Skating but the board is obviously much bigger and less manageable. Using the heels to initiate the tilt is the key.

Great for practicing your surfing skills on wave less days!

The ultimate intention in Wakesurfing is to jack up the boat wake to peak just behind the boat by increasing weight to back of boat and engine tilt, so that you can ride the standing wave WITHOUT THE HANDLE.
This puts you dangerously near the prop, should you wipe out and to be frank, unless you can generate a BIG wake, is pretty boring. You can’t do much or get very far from the wake as you drop off, and get left behind.
To see a boat load of “dudes” all hanging at the back of the boat, watching some rider wick wacking, up and down a pissy little wake, is NOT cool.

Wakesurfing without the handle needs – Big boat, big engine, big weight, big wake – OK, but watch he prop! If you fall, fall clear.

If you want to carve like on big waves, it’s better to stay back, on the handle and shred the wake.

Here is a video of the worlds Best performing and are far from Boring. Notice how good the wake is and how the boat has been weight biased to increase the wake on the left or right side, to favour ‘natural’ (left foot forward) and ‘goofy’ (right foot forward) riders.

Have Fun.
