There is something so exciting about wakeboarding. Seeing someone plane effortlessly on the water at great speeds is an inspiration to many, and a Greece sailing holiday can provide the perfect opportunity to give it a go.

Greek sailing activities - Get in the water

Once you have decided to take the plunge, there is one key decision you have to make: how are you going to stand on the wakeboard? This might sound odd, but getting this right is essential to ensuring you are balanced correctly when the board emerges from the water. Even more unusual is how you decide which your leading leg is: you need to get a friend to push you from behind! Strange, yes, but the leg which comes forward naturally when pushed is the one that needs to be leading on the wakeboard too.


When you are wearing a life-jacket, working with a registered instructor and behind the boat in the water, it is important to make sure the rope is in the right place. It should be between your knees and kept centred at all times. As the boat starts and you begin to move, just remember that the life-jacket, rope and board are doing all the hard work – you are there to provide balance by bringing all the components of the sport together.


As you and the board emerge from the water, it’s time to shine! Keep your legs bent and stay in a reclining position and enjoy the amazing feeling that wakeboarding provides.
