Loch Lomond Water Skiing and Board Sports | Loch Lomond Waterfront

Water Skiing & Board Sports

Water skiing and board sports such as paddleboarding and wakeboarding, are popular Loch Lomond water sports. They all involve riding the water’s surface, either on skis or a board. Sometimes pulled by a motorboat.

All these activities are available on Loch Lomond and are great ways to have fun on the water. Suitable for beginners, there are a range of lessons and sessions on offer. As well as more advanced coaching for experienced riders.

Stand Up Paddleboarding

Stand up paddleboarding (SUP) is fast becoming one of the most popular watersports around. It’s easy to learn and suitable for most ages. Start by kneeling on the board, gradually building up the confidence to stand. You can then move across the water, using a paddle to steer.


Wakeboarding is a thrilling alternative, which is lots of fun and suitable for beginners. The rider is fastened to a wakeboard and towed across the water by a motorboat.

Water Skiiing

In water skiiing, the rider stands on water skis and is towed by a motorboat. Usually at slightly faster speeds than wakeboarding.


Kneeboarding is where the rider kneels on a board, towed by a motorboat.


In wakesurfing, the rider trails behind the motorboat, but is not directly pulled by it. Instead, riding the boat’s wake.

  • Breathtaking views

    'Where to start! We chose the waterfront for our wedding because of the absolutely breathtaking views, location and surroundings. You can't put a price on a view like that. We were planning a small intimate wedding for 28, mid week at the waterfront and living all the way down in Kent, organising could have been so difficult if it wasn't for Sheena the wedding coordinators help. Everything was organised to a fabulous standard and despite my millions of emails she didn't get sick of me and was happy to email pictures and explain thoroughly. We were so lucky to have...

The flexibility and service that the staff of the venue provided was amazing and our wedding turned out to be the perfect day we had always hoped for.
