Join the Mentelity Wakeboard Clinic

The Bibian Mentel Foundation is organizing a wakeboard clinic July 17 and August 21 together with Down Under in Nieuwegein. During this day we will teach you wakeboarding on the practice track or you can glide across the water independently on the big track. 

Guides from Down Under and the Bibian Mentel Foundation will guide you on this day as best they can and give tips and tricks. Wakeboarding is a sport that takes a lot of strength, but especially perseverance. Together we look at the possibilities to let everyone wakeboard. For example, did you know that you can wakeboard sitting down? The Bibian Mentel Foundation has the equipment to make that possible.

Accessible for everyone
The Mentelity Wakeboard clinic is an ideal day out for families and groups of friends. On the day we provide the appropriate equipment for everyone, physically challenged or not. Together we make sure everyone gets moving during the wakeboard clinic.

The clinic will be held at Down Under Nieuwegein (Ravensewetering 1, 3439 ZZ Nieuwegein).

Program clinics:
Clinic round 1: 14:00-16:00

Clinic round 2: 16:00-18:00

Maximum of 6 people per clinic round.

The clinic will be held on the so-called 2.0 course. This is a track that goes straight and back. On this track the pace can be adjusted for everyone personally and there will always be experienced volunteers around you to help/tip you if necessary. And only one person can go on that course at a time.

Be sure to arrive half an hour before the start of your lap for changing and instructions so you can get started as soon as possible when your lap starts. A maximum of 4 people per hour can participate in the clinic. If you are not physically challenged but would like to learn, buy a ticket for the big course. The instructors will be able to help you there as well.

When you find during the clinic that you are doing well, you may continue on the big course.

Self wakeboarding/water skiing
If you can already wakeboard or water ski by yourself then you are also welcome to come between 2:00 and 6:00 pm! You may then use the big cableway and are not stuck to a time slot. Choose the ticket "free wakeboarding/water skiing". On the big runway, a boat regularly sails around to take fallen participants. Should you have a good running ability yourself, you can also choose to swim to shore and walk back.

We have two sitting wakeboards that can be used at both the clinic and the big course. The clinic has priority use of this equipment. If it is available it may also be used at the big course. Do you have your own equipment? Please let us know and bring it with you!
