Wakeboarding Tioman

Home / Tickets / Update* / Blog

Given the awesome aerials you see when someone is having a good time wakeboarding, it's no surprise to hear that wakeboarding is one of the fastest growing watersports in the world.

And with this growing popularity has come a number of new innovations and new ever more radical ways to ride. What better way to perfect all your moves on water that is smooth, yet challenging enough to be a blast.

If you've been itching to pick up wakeboarding in Malaysia, but feel a little hesitant to pay the hefty fees for just an hour of cabe-boarding on a glorified pond, most of which you'd spend in the queue anyway, then come to Tioman for a weekend of nonstop real wakeboarding action.

Wakeboarding in Tioman is like wakeboarding in paradise. The mostly calm and turquoise-colored seawater around the island is a sheer delight to ride on, not only because it's a comfortable 30 degrees but also because of its gin-like clarity.

The water here is so clear, you'll feel like you're wakeboarding in a swimming pool. In fact, there are areas near Kampung Juara, on Tioman's East Coast, where you can actually see your own shadow fleet along the corals below. Mesmerizing.

If you like flat water, tell your boat driver to head out to the south of Juara Bay. This patch is in the wind shadow of the Southern Juara cove and thus is very calm, excellent for smooth speed runs and easy wake-riding.

If, on the other hand, you like the more bump-and-jump type of wakeboarding, then head out to the middle of Juara Bay, because this stretch is more exposed to the sea breeze. You won't get big chop perse, but the wind does push in some pretty regular swell to play on or use as a ramp.

Interested in a wakeboarding class for novices? These are available, usually with a personal trainer and at a fair price. Typically, the powerboat used is a top-of-the-range wakeboarding speedboat and all wakeboards available are user-friendly. That said, if you have a board of your own, by all means bring it along, because nothing beats using your own gear. The ferry to Tioman has lots and lots of space for larger luggage like boards, golf bags, bicycles etc, but they may charge excess luggage fee for these bigger items. Nothing extreme though, so no worries there.
