Wakeboarding & Waterskiing

in Poole Harbour, Sandbanks, Dorset

The Watersports Academy’s location offers outstanding conditions for skiing and boarding. Poole Harbour’s designated ski area is naturally sheltered from the elements, providing a flat and predictable surface that ensures a consistent wake. Smooth conditions are excellent for beginners standing for the first time and pros dialling down their style.

  • Board and Ski Courses

    Whatever level and ability you are, we’ll show you the ropes. Our qualified instructors can teach you to stand on the water for the very first time, improve your carving or help you get bigger air and everything in between. Our tuition sessions last one hour and start with a short briefing at our harbour side classroom, moving onto the Harbour water itself for 30 minutes of ‘fresh air’ teaching!

  • Ringos!

    It’s one of our most popular activities. Our ringo package is like no other, we split your group into two, taking one half on the ringo boat, whilst the other half watch and laugh. After 20 minutes we rotate. We have a four person ringo which is very safe and extremely good fun for birthdays parties and groups!
