11 Apr 2018

    2018 Malibu Boats Wakeboard National Championships Announced


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.

Wakesurf Session

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 for the competition will be provided on the Friday prior to the event, the 29th June 2018. Booking is mandatory - contact details and cost for practice bookings to follow. Slots will be available from 1pm thru 7pm, 10 min slots.


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 Lakes provides an ideal holiday location and wakeboard competition accommodation with choices from lakeside lodges to posh camping next to the competition site.

Note: We are working to obtain a discount code for accommodation and will post this online as soon as we have it.
