Where to go for wakeboarding in Phuket?
Update: Anthem Wakepark is permanently closed since March 1st, 2020
Anthem Wakepark is one of the three wakeboard lakes on Phuket Island. This 650-meter long cable track runs clockwise at 29 km/h and features 11 obstacles and jumping platforms. If you are in the Bangtao area and are looking for some extreme sport, Anthem Wakepark is an excellent option.
Beginners and kids as young as 4 years old can learn, and it’s a lot easier than you think! Advanced wakeboarders can also improve their skills with qualified instructors. Note that if you fall, you will have to walk back to the starting dock, but the circumference of the lake makes it an easy walk.
Wakeboard is easy to enjoy, but at a higher level, it can become physically intense. If you are new to this extreme sport, you will need a rest between rounds. The terrace of Anthem Kitchen is an excellent place for a rest. The restaurant serves Thai and western cuisine on a breezy open-air terrace offering great views of the lake. A lunch or a snack is a chance to observe how other wakeboarders perform their jaw-dropping air tricks!
You can rent all the needed equipment, but you can also buy wakeboards, wakeskates, bindings, helmets, life jackets and board bags at Anthem Pro-shop.
