From the moment I arrived at Wake Up! Wakeboarding, I was made to feel part of the family. A great group of customers and staff that were enthusiastic and professional and really passed their passion for the sport on to me. The instruction was clear and light hearted, I felt no pressure once out there and everyone on the boat was cheering and having fun regardless of my inablities on the board. After the course I was a much better wakeboarder and had become hooked on the sport.

The equipment was all top quality and really comfortable which also helped my boarding. The boat was set up specifically for wakeboarding with a tower and ballast making a great wake and massive height on the jumps.

I would highly recommend this place to all who travel to Koh Phangan, even if you are not boarding the crew are great fun and will help make sure you have a good time on the island.

It was my first time on the board,any kind of board.. Took me awhile to get use to the whole concept..but at last I stood up..Was so excited!..It is really amazing feeling just to slide through the water..The whole session was about 1 hour maybe 1 hours and a half..really good price for such a beginner.. Brilliant instructor!Always encouraging,explaining things over and over again,very helpful and for sure knows what he is talking about..Cheers for that!.
Wanted to come back another day but had really sore hands for next few days..
Highly recommend!!!..

This was first time wakeboarding and Jamie got me up and jumping in 20 min! He's really good emphasizing the thing you need to improve and explaining it in a easy fashion. They have two boats, an all-rounder and a professional one to give you big waves :-)

At first I was very apprehensive, after i met jamie my instructor he made me feel at ease, with his professional attitude i thought what the hell i will give it a go. when we got in the boat he explained every aspect of the sport professionally, then i started my lesson and in no time i was up and away having the best time of my life and feeling a million dollars.Thank you jamie for a great time. oh by the way i went again, isn't that fantastic for a 69 year old man!!!

The guys at Wake Up have great equipment with two boats available all the time, you can choose a smaller one if you are learning or they have a Mastercraft X-star and thats about the best boat in the world for a wakeboarder, but more than that, jamie is a great teacher and i was able to stand up on my first time out. Then went we out for more sets the following day and I made improvements every time.
Chaloklum bay is paradise, and the water is pretty flat most of the time. looking forward to going back one day

Jamie is a very welcoming man making me feel at ease and giving me some great instructions on how to get started wakeboarding. Only 2 attempts before I was stood up...
Both his boats and equipment looked well looked after and the x craft has a roar that only a v engine can provide.
See you again soon

I had so much fun Wakeboarding and wake surfing with Jamie at Wake Up ! The water was perfect in the sheltered bay of chaloklum, So flat and so clear that you're riding a perfect wake and looking down at tropical blue sea! jamies a great instructor for people of all levels, I have some experience and he helped me fine tune my jumping but my partner has no experience and with his tuition she stood up in no time, she was so happy !
I highly recommend it , whatever your plans for your visit to the island fit in a trip and go out Wakeboarding!

Very good instructions from jamie, very good equipment, perfect boat for wakeboarding - creates good waves and rope is of ideal length. the boat even has a cam clip on top so bring your gopro for some awesome footage of your ride. Just go to the school, relax at the bar before and after the ride. jamie will take care of you

We were lucky to stay at Chaloklum and discover the place were you can wakeboard in one of the most beautiful surroundings. Jamie was very nice and and great teacher so we stand uo from the first moment on the board as beginners. We did some excercices on the boat and the board was perfect to handle. After the 15 min I felt like doung sport for hours. I would really recommend everybody to do it! You will not regret!!! Thank you Jamie for the nice course from Anna & Irina!
