Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie or you’re looking to get out of your comfort zone, wakeboarding is a thrilling and unique sport to try your hand at. Here are 3 of the best places to Wakeboard or Waterski in Singapore.
1. RYDERS SINGAPORE
Ryders Singapore is the largest watersports company in Singapore. Dedicated to providing customers an unparalleled experience on the waters, the folks at Ryders have a core belief that wakeboarding is more than just a sport, it’s a lifestyle. Besides private bookings, they also conduct their monthly event, Wake & Bake, where like-minded watersports enthusiasts gather to wakeboard and dine together.
Rates begin from $120/hour, with personalised coaching, all required equipment included and a whole lot of fun guaranteed!

2. Edge Wakeboarding
Edge calls themselves a place for Wakeboarders by Wakeboarders. Now, that probably sounds a little bit intimidating but they promise to cater to people of every skill level just as long as you have an interest in Wakeboarding. They also provide equipment and instructors who have an average of 10 years experience.
They use a less conservative method of teaching, relying on the “feel” of the sport rather than the technicalities. They ensure that this method allows students to learn in a much faster and safer manner.
$130 per hour

3. Singapore Wake Park
Ski 360 is the first Cable-Ski Park in Singapore with a new 650 m Cableway. They provide lessons in cable wakeboarding, unique only to this school. I live pretty near this school and happen to pass by it a lot on my runs at East Coast. It looks really interesting and it's motorised cables have introduced a fresh concept new to Singapore.
This automation maybe the reason why its relatively much cheaper than the other wakeboarding service providers, but then again, this does not cater to students like the rest.
$38 per hour on Weekdays and $50 for one hours on Weekends
1206A East Coast Parkway
