Go waterskiing or wakeboarding this summer

Summer months in South Africa are popular for waterskiing – why not give it a go?

South Africans love waterskiing and wakeboarding, particularly during the warm but wet summer months when inland water levels around the most parts of the country are at their highest.

Those who know how to waterski can hire boats and equipment at various nature reserves, while those who don’t can always take lessons.

Those who know how to waterski can hire boats and equipment at various nature reserves, while those who don’t can always take lessons and try out this extreme water sport under professional supervision. Prices generally start at around R100 per hour at venues where the cable system is used instead of boats.

Places to head for waterskiing and wakeboarding in South Africa include:

Blue Rock in Cape Town

The Vaal Dam in Gauteng

Midmar Dam in KwaZulu-Natal

If you want to watch top class wakeboarding, go to 1 of the Wakeboarding South Africa Pro Tour events this summer. View the schedule on their website.

Below is a video of the cable you can ride at Blue Rock in Cape Town.
