Wakeup Docklands

Set beneath the Cable Car it’s time to get set for an exciting day of action on the water as London’s premier wakeboarding centre offers a range of unique and exhilarating ways to enjoy the Royal Docks. It makes great spectator viewing too!

What is it?

WakeUp Docklands is a watersports centre with a difference. You can speed across the water via the the two wake boarding lines which feature a number of jumps and obstacles or you can give stand up paddleboarding (SUP) a try while taking in the sights and sounds of one of London’s most dramatic settings. Whether you’re looking for a new and interesting way to keep fit or just interested in giving the worlds fastest growing watersport a try, they can provide a coaching or practise session to suit your needs.

What’s on?

The centre offers an array of activities to suit all tastes with a full range of equipment on site. Experienced staff provide sessions for all levels of ability. The Oiler Bar is a great place to relax after a hard day on the water.

New for the 2019 season, they are able to offer introductory hydrofoiling lessons on their “Blue cable”.

Designed to help you find your first step towards hydrofoiling, these lessons are especially great if you are a keen kiteboarder, wishing to get the feeling of hydrofoiling before introducing your kite and wind into the mix!

Lessons are by ‘appointment only’ so please enquire using the contact us form on the bottom of their website.

Please note: Hydrofoil lessons are only suitable for experienced wakeboarders & kiteboarders looking to take the next step and learn a how ride a hydrofoil. We do not give coaching on the use of kites and it is forbidden to operate kites in our waters so please leave them at home.
