Wakeboard UK are proud to announce the date and location of the 2018 Malibu Boats Wakeboard Nationals Championships. The competition is being held on the weekend of 30th June - 1st July 2018 and returns to the amazing Tattershall Lakes Resort, Lincolnshire.
30 Jun 2018 thru
01 Jul 2018
Entry to the competition is via the online form at the BWSW website.
Anyone who has visited Tattershall will know the lake is a fantastic venue and most importantly, deep enough to handle the pro-wake sized Malibu boat we have lined up to pull the competition.
Waterside accommodation, restaurant, bar and play areas ensure everyone can watch the action whilst keeping themselves and their family well-fed and entertained.

Castle Ski Club
Wakeboard UK would like to extend our thanks to the hosting club Castle Water Ski Club who not only provide valuable time on their fantastic lake to enable the National Championships but also help out greatly at the event to keep the competition working smoothly and safely.
Castle Water Ski Club is a family friendly club with a proud history and roots going back to the early 1950’s. The club is affiliated to the British Water Ski & Wakeboard Federation and are a members run club.
In addition to the high-end wakeboard action at the competition, Malibu Boats will be demonstrating the awesome wakesurfing wakes and Integrated Surf System on their boats.
The Malibu Integrated Surf System (ISP) is a combination of surf generating tech that all work together including the Power Wedge II, Quad Hard-Tank Ballast, Tailored Swim Platform Design, Performance Hull Design, and SurfGate. These are all controlled
as one by the Command Centre dashboard. In addition, using their SurfBand, a rider can control boat speed, surf side, wedge position and even stereo volume all from behind the boat.
If you are looking to see how you can catch some surf behind the same boat that will also create a pro-level wakeboarding wake, sign up for this session - details to follow.
Practice is now available to book for Friday 29th June from 1pm onwards. Practice is 1 x 10min session per rider - book via the driver for the session Ross Phillips - email him on firstname.lastname@example.org
Note you must have entered the comp to book practice.
The competition for 2018 promises to be hotly contested with the level of riding increasing - expect to see some insane tricks thrown down by British riders freshly back from their winter overseas training bases.
2018 is a big year for UK wakeboarders with the IWWF Worlds, Nationals, IWWF Europeans and Wake Open - all IWWF ranking events for British riders. Note that entering the Nationals is a proviso of being included in the Team GB Squad.
Tattershall is a holiday destination in its own right so entertainment is built in, including such attractions as an onsite wakeboard cable, inflatable fun area, restaurants, bars etc. For full information visit the Away Resorts website.
Full competition details (including any changes) will be located on the 2018 Nationals Competition web page. Updates will also be sent out by Insta/Facebook/Twitter and our mailing
