Wake Up! Wakeboarding is located on the north side of the island in Chaloklum Bay and is the only wakeboarding school in Koh Phangan. The school offers wakeboarding along the stunning bay, as the instructor and English ex-pat Jaime takes the novices through the motions. Wake Up! has also recently acquired a mightily impressive Mastercraft pro wakeboard boat to optimise the experience for all involved in addition to their custom-made Roberta, adding another element to their already very professional operation. The bay allows you to wakeboard for uninterrupted kilometres, with the crystal waters thrashing beneath your feet, and your sense of accomplishment growing with each second you spend without wiping out in spectacular fashion. If wakeboarding is not your thing, they also offer wake ski’s, wakeskates, and a wake surf board, so your options are plentiful. The sheltered bay itself is a spectacular place to be, with towering mountains behind you and amazing, warm waters for you to wakeboard on, and all the fun you can imagine to be had.
