Lake Ashmore was formally a gravel pit and in 1986 it was emptied and clay lined to transform it into a water ski lake. Our family have been fortunate enough to have private use of the lake since that time. In 2011, when Lake Ashmore came on the market, we naturally jumped at the opportunity to purchase it and set out on our journey to turn our passion for water sports into a business. After 5 long and hard years going through the planning process we finally got the go ahead in May 2016.
These are 15 minute sessions on the water and include coaching from our fully trained staff. You might just want to have a chilled ride, learn your first air raley or start progressing your riding.

Our Inflatable rides are mega fun and give participants the chance take turns in tearing up and down the lake on our big inflatables, feeling every bump and splash along the way! Inflatable rides can be the perfect added extra along with our other activities on site or great fun on their own.
15 minute session
(2 adults or 3 children at a time, Max 3 groups per session)
Most of our obstacles are designed and fabricated by the Industry Wake Parks crew. All the wakeboard obstacles are safe, user friendly and designed with decades of experience. We have created a progression ladder through the park. No matter what standard you are at, there is an obstacle for you to use and an obstacle for you to progress onto and dream of ‘hitting’! The better you get the more there is to play on!
We operate with a Sesitec System 2.0 cable tow and you as the rider have the option to simply board up and down or ‘hit’ the obstacles when you are ready.
We work closely with British Waterski and Wakeboard (BWSW) and all our staff are fully trained and qualified.
All the team have valid first aid licenses and have been CRB checked.
The beauty of the System 2.0 cable tow is that you have an operator and a rider; this means it is one to one. When you are in the water the operator is concentrating 100% on you and helping you to improve, progress your riding and have fun. Our instructors and coaches will work with you to keep you learning new trick after new trick and rapidly moving up the progression ladder. We love passing on our knowledge and we get just as much of a buzz from teaching our riders as we do riding ourselves!
Great place to go chill, have a bite to eat, swim and watch all the activities going on!
If you’re feeling hungry why not try the food in our cafe which is open all day serving a selection of Homemade food, fresh cakes and Wood fired pizzas. We also serve Artisan coffees, brewed to perfection and have a selection of drinks to quench your thirst
