Glasgow University
Wakeboarding Club

Wakeboarding is the fastest growing board sport in the world today, and Glasgow University Wakeboarding Club gives you the opportunity to join in with all the fun.

We use the System 2.0 cable at Glasgow Wake Park, involving being pulled by a zip wire through the water, with a variety of obstacles to hit. Whether you are a newbie looking to start a fun new hobby, or an experienced rider, this is the club for you!


Thanks to Glasgow Wake Park, Scotland's first urban wake park, opening a mere subway journey away, we have great training facilities close by. Here, you are always under full coaching by qualified instructors, as well as all equipment hire being available at great student deals. Glasgow Wake Park is a great place to hang out, watch others ride and create new friends as well as learning some sweet new tricks. We train here once or twice a week, and you are welcome to come to as many or as little sessions as you want.

Social Events

Wakeboarding is a very warm and sociable club, we are like one big family. We host small pub socials every other week, and bigger socials such as outings to the local trampoline park.


We take part in multiple competitions, all of which are friendly and open to all abilities, including CeltWake, a big competition held between Scottish, Irish and Northern Irish universities. Competitions are a great way to meet likeminded people and always involve a lot of partying and good times.

Further Info

We welcome people of any level – whether you are a pro, or have never seen a wakeboard in your life. So, whether you just want to come hang out and chat, or look to be throwing some tantrums at a national competition, we welcome you!
