The boat is based at the Premier Marina in Falmouth. This is an ideal departure point for the Fal estuary and the coves going west towards the Lizard Peninsula.

There’s a fridge down below, a table and plenty of seating for chilling out and enjoying a drink in between the watersports sessions. There’s also a sunbathing area at the front of the boat, ideal for relaxing and catching some rays.

Jenny is a BWSA wakeboard coach, so is qualified to get beginners up and riding and can help experienced wakeboarders improve and learn tricks. She is also an advanced RYA powerboat driver, so you’re in good hands whether whoever is at the helm.

The boat is fitted with a wakeboard arc rather than a tower, which is ideal for wakeboarding. It’s perfect for intermediates looking to improve their tricks and get some air. The flatter area between the wake is ideal for teaching beginners to water ski and wakeboard in Cornwall.

Boating areas and conditions

Head out to Fal estuary, followed by a high-speed blast out at sea. Make your way up the scenic Helford Passage, famous for Frenchmans Creek and some lovely unspoilt quiet coves. You can stop for a swim wherever takes your fancy.

With plenty of sheltered water, the Fal River and estuary is great for boating in any weather. So even if the heavens aren’t playing ball, it can still be a great day out. There are designated waterski/wakeboard areas here which never get too busy, in fact we often have the waters to ourselves.
