Introducing Wakeboard UK (WUK)
Promoting the growth of wakeboarding and safe riding in the UK
Wakeboarding is a great sport to get into. Once you get going in the world of wakeboarding, it might be time to join up with one of the many wakeboard clubs around, or Wakeboard UK – the sport's governing body.
Wakeboard UK (WUK) works in association with the British Water Ski Federation Limited, the national governing body for waterskiing in the UK.
Recognised by the English Sports Council, the British Water Ski Federation is responsible for the development of the sport; registration of coaches and officials and increasing the opportunities for participation in water skiing for all, including the disabled.
WUK was set up in 1994 and has pushed hard to elevate wakeboarding to its current competitive level. There are more than 120 affiliated clubs in the UK. Much like the British Water Ski Federation, WUK is responsible for promoting the growth of the sport and safe riding within the wakeboarding community. This includes assisting its members to improve individual skills on and off the water, with coaching instruction from grass roots club level to international squad training.
There are many benefits to joining the British Water Ski Federation, including automatic personal accident cover. This will cover you up to £25,000 while skiing anywhere in the world or traveling to and from its calendar events within the UK.
It is highly recommended that beginners are trained by official WUK or British Water Ski Federation instructors. To find out more about the sport along with a list of top wakeboarding locations in the UK visit British Water Ski &Wakeboard.
