Cutting Edge

Cutting Edge is an official British Waterski and Wakeboard (BWSW) programme focused on building and mastering new skills for young participants (both new and experienced) in the sport. 

Ranging from ages 6 – 16, Cutting Edge offers participants the choice of: 

  • Waterskiing – From Two-skis to Mono-ski and including Slalom, Trick and Jump

  • Wakeboarding 

  • Kneeboarding – including Trick and Slalom

  • Barefoot 

With their chosen discipline, participants can work their way towards the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards and have fun in the process.

Over the years, the Cutting Edge Programme has been delivered through Saturday Evening sessions spanning between June and July. Participants will be ready for a 5:30pm start at the Clubhouse where they will take turns training on their chosen discipline for approximately 20 - 30 minutes.

The cost for each individual is £4 per session and will go directly to the owner of the boats being used during the sessions.
