Wakeboarding in Lunigiana – the Panda Wake Park

Now in its second season, the Panda Wake Park at Lago Alice near Filattiera is ready for the summer. Definitely for the young and fit, wakeboarding is a fairly new phenomenon and is a cross between surfing (you ride a wakeboard, which is similar to a small surfboard), water skiing (in that you get towed along), and snowboarding (you can perform similar tricks).  At the Panda Wake Park, the rider is pulled across the water by a system of cables, rather than by a boat. Experienced surfers find it quite easy, while waterskiers may find the pace a bit slow.

Davide, also known as Mazzu, or Hadler will tell you how to register. See contact details below. Once you’re a signed up member, it will cost €10 for ten minutes of wakeboarding.  Ten minutes is a good run for a beginner, with the experienced wakeboarder stretching to twenty minutes.
