Located in the stunning landscape of North Devon and only 10 minutes away from the coast, North Devon Wake Park boasts the best of both worlds. Offering you a stunning lake with all the trimmings.
We have several amazing activities to choose from:
- The Aquapark is the only one of its kind in Devon and great fun for all the family consisting of trampolines, slides, logs, running mats, climbing frames, as well as the country’s biggest ‘Rockit’ to roll, balance or rock, as an individual or as a team!
- Wakeboarding is an amazing sport and unlike surfing you can come down no matter the weather and always have perfect conditions to learn on
Cable wakeboarding is similar to skateboarding and snowboarding, but on water where an overhead cable pulls you along
- Ringo rides can also happen on the cable where you lie on a large inflatable ring and get pulled along
- Paddleboarding is another fun activity for all the family on our stunning lake
Located in the picturesque landscape of the Devon cliffs, a five-minute walk away from the sea, is North Devon Wakepark. Opened in 2014, ND Wakepark became the very first cable wakeboard park in Devon, whereby our expert coaches help to teach, progress, and encourage participants to enjoy wakeboarding. We operate with 2 Sesitec System 2.0’s; a straight-line cable where one person at a time can go, these systems have been shown to have the quickest progression and success rate in wakeboarding.
Cable wakeboarding is similar to skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding, except that your feet are strapped on to the board and you get pulled along the water by an overhead cable, manually controlled by one of our coaches - no boat is involved here! And the good news is that we can tailor the speed and each session to everybody’s individual needs.
In 2016 we launched our Aquapark; the first inflatable waterpark in the South West to be installed. This water-based playground has slides, balance beams and trampolines, perfect for all ages from 6 upwards – and beware, the adults have as much fun as the kids! We pride ourselves on ensuring that everyone has the best time possible, so we have taken the decision to limit the number of people by half the recommended capacity so there’s no doubt that everyone has plenty of space…and fun. This is supervised by our handpicked lifeguards, ready to cater to and help everyone.
2018 is our big year, with new additions being made to the aquapark to further increase everyone’s enjoyment, as well huge increases in the decking and undercover area, with benches and a viewing area to get the best view of the Wakepark. Maybe the biggest change of all will be to our cables, where we are extending one of the lines by 50 metres to lengthen our riding areas…and you know what that means? New obstacles! Finally, we are excited to announce that this year we are launching our online booking system on our website for individual bookings, group bookings and gift vouchers for the AquaPark.
We are excited to see where this year leads us and the changes that are to come. Keep an eye open on our Facebook page to keep up to date with our ever-changing story.
