The FIRST Wakepark in Wales is NOW OPEN at Glasfryn Parc

The FIRST Wakepark in Wales is NOW OPEN at Glasfryn Parc

The first Wakepark in Wales is now open at Glasfryn Activity Parc near Pwllheli, with a Sesitec System 2.0 Cable-tow. Wakeboarding behind the Sesitec System 2.0 is ideal for absolute beginners.

The perfect conditions provided by the fresh-water lake at Glasfryn Parc, which is protected by mature trees, means that this is the ideal location to learn how to wakeboard.   No need to rely on a boat or waiting for perfect conditions at sea. The cable can be used whatever the weather and is the most accessible way to get into wakeboarding.  Wakeboarding is one of the fastest growing sports and I’m delighted that visitors to Glasfryn Parc can now try this for themselves.

Glasfryn Wakeparc is committed to providing great wakeboarding for complete beginners and experienced riders alike. There are two fantastic obstacles in place for the more experienced rider to try out their skills.

For those looking to learn air tricks, there is a ramp....And  Glasfryn Parc is  delighted to have the Relentless Leviathan rail.... the very one that was used by the pro-riders in Wakestock 2010.

Wakeboarding is a great sport for almost everyone. The minimum age for particpants at the Glasfryn Wakeparc is 8yrs and must be a competent swimmer.

Full instruction is given by a British Water Ski Federation qualified and experienced wakeboarding professional to make sure riders feel at ease and gradually build their confidence in a non-intimidating and relaxed atmosphere. Wetsuit, wakeboard, vest and helmet hire are all included and full changing facilities with showers.

All users will wear a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet. There is also a safety boat on the lake, as well as firstaid trained staff.

The cost is £20 per person for a 1 hour session and includes hire of equipment (wetsuit, buoyancy aid, helmet, board) and a hot shower (please bring your own towel). Each session lasts for an hour with a maximum of four riders. Riders need to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start time in order to give them time to get kitted up. First session of the day starts at 10am.

Booking is recommended to avoid disappointment but you can just rock up and ride (depending on availability). Visitors are welcome to just go along to watch.To book your session, please call 01766 810202 or email info@glasfryn.co.uk.  For further information: www.glasfryn.co.uk

A visit to Glasfryn Parc is a great day out for everyone. As well as wakeboarding, there are two go-kart circuits (one for seniors and one for juniors - plus double karts); quad bikes; ten pin bowling; archery; an outdoor play area and a fantastic indoor soft play centre; a cafe, dining room and licensed bar. There is also an award-winning Farm Shop.

Glasfryn Parc is open every day of the year (except Christmas Day) from 10am. Outdoor activities close at 6pm and bowling and the bar is open until late. Homemade food is served until 9pm.

There's plenty of free parking at Glasfyn Parc, just off the A499 Caernarfon to Pwllheli road. Dogs are welcome on a lead....and with a choice of our cafe, Dining Room or picnic tables outside there are plenty of opportunities for you to re-fuel after your time on the water.

And, there's a Farmer's Market at Glasfryn Parc on the first Saturday of the month.

Located on the A499 Caernarfon to Pwllheli road, Glasfryn Wakeparc is easily accessible to everyone in North Wales.
