Last year we saw the first of our Wake Daze events kick off in April and continue through to September. We’ve had a bit of a change up this year due to wanting warmer weather to wakeboard in, (we do live in England, after all) so we are gearing up for our first event is on the 19th May over at Club Wake Park!
The second one is on the 30th June at CWP, where the yoga session will be replaced by a Stand Up Paddle Board Fitness session! We’re excited!!
The third event is the amazing Weekend Retreat! Last year was epic and we hope this year will bring even more levels of stoke! Filled with wakeboarding, yoga, food, camping, BBQ, lakeside campfires and hot tub sessions all hosted by CWP. We loved this so much and can’t wait until this one! We have moved it from September to July in hope of warmer weather for camping, and optimal lakeside basking between wakeboard sets.
The fourth day event is on the 1st September at CWP. Again filled with all the goodness that is wakeboarding, yoga, Nalu Beads (NB workshops will run on every event, thanks for the support Nalu!), food and bevvies and of course, the log burning hot tub.
All of our coaching will be headed up by Level 3 Wakeboard Coach, Lex Balladon.
So whether you’ve never tried wakeboarding before, are a fair weather rider, a regular at your local lake, or an up and coming pro in the making, there is always something to work on to progress you to the next level.

We had the best time this summer hanging out with all of the wake babes that came to one or more of our Wake Daze events and retreats! We are busy planning lots of exciting stuff for next year and gear is just one of them.
Introducing the new Wake Daze crew neck sweatshirt! This is super comfy and great for wearing literally anywhere.
Check out the shots from a shoot we did with Wakeboarder/Coach Lex Balladon and ultimate babe Janni from Club Wake Park.
These super snuggie crews will be up for grabs very soon! Stay tuned..
Oh. My. Daze. Wake Daze that is. We just had our very first weekend retreat last weekend and it was lit. We had a blast hanging out with such an amazing bunch of babes, it was ridiculous! Its taken a few days to get the snaps out, we had to edit them down from nearly 1000 down to around 100… it took some time, (check out all the photos here). So here is a little blog rounding up the weekend.
Here it goes… we kicked things off on Saturday with a thunder storm. Yep, we had it down to rain for a while but not a full blown storm. Good ol’ England. So we hit the giant bean bags with some Nalu Beads and coffees, and got to know each other a little better.
Once we had the all clear to ride, everyone was raring to go after being mesmerised by knotting their Nalu creations. We had a great mix of abilities, four complete beginners and four riders that had been wakeboarding for over a year or more. The great thing about CWP is that it has two cables set up, one which is shorter with no toys and so its great for beginners. And the other cable is tighter with a third cable running through it which is great for learning air tricks, and it also has loads of fun toys to play on.
On the first day we kept the group as one and everyone was chilling together while someone was riding, which is cool because everyone was cheering everyone on. We had riders getting used to the cable and the toys, learning new cuts into kickers, and total beginners standing up on their first ever time wakeboarding! Whaaaaat? Then we swiftly moved on to learning new tricks for the intermediate riders, and starting to use an edge for the beginners.
Once the wakeboarding part of the day was wrapped, the groups headed to the hot tub where they were waiting for their Coach, Lex Balladon, to join in with a welcomed prosecco toast! What a great way to end a wakeboard session.
Fuel was needed and it came in the form of a BBQ laid on by the clubhouse, which went down a treat. The night was not over, we led the group back to the lake where Toby (from CWP) had set up a fire pit so we could toast marshmallows and cozy up.
The next morning arrived after a night of camping where a brew and cereal bar were provided to wipe away the sleep heads. We met Yogi Parker Rose on the dock ready for some morning yoga to get our bodies moving and ready for the wakeboarding that lay ahead. Parker took us through a fantastic morning flow filled with stretches and vinyasa, along with a some balancing poses, it was the perfect way to start the second day of our wakeboarding and yoga weekend retreat.
Lex and Toby went for a quick demo set each before the wakeboarding part of the day started. Amped to ride, the girls were changed and ready to go. There was also a continental breakfast laid out so people could eat as they pleased throughout the morning to keep them fuelled up.
This time, the group was split in two and we had both cables running with four girls on each cable. Lex spent an hour over on the beginner cable coaching the girls through using edges and turning, and even corners! These babes did good! After that, Lex spent an hour coaching over on the other cable coaching the intermediate group who were killing it! They were going huge off the kickers and getting the different grabs, pressing on the fun box, hitting the incline and even the side of the transfer! Well done you wake babes!
The food and hot tub kept us going through all the riding as it was a little chills, but sadly it was time to bring our weekend retreat to a close. We rounded up with a huge pat on the back to all the shredder babes for riding so well, and thanked everyone for joining us on our first ever Wake Daze, wakeboard and yoga weekend retreat!
We cannot wait for our next events, stay tuned as 2018 dates will be dropping over the winter.
A huge HUGE thank you goes out to Toby and Janni from Club Wake Park for being such awesome hosts, and to Nalu Beads for providing all the goodies.
The August Wake Daze was just brilliant! We here at Wake Daze had so much fun hanging out with such a rad bunch of babes.
The day started with a meet and greet and then in came yogi Parker Rose who led the squad through a great lakeside session which was activating, yet relaxing. Snacks and juices were provided to see everyone through till lunch time.
The focus moved over to the waters edge where everyone was super supportive of whoever was on the water. We had a real mixed bag of abilities, going from complete beginners, right up to transfers and air tricks. Everyone was pushing themselves, nailing themselves and landed new tricks. Stoke levels were at an all time high!
Lunch was needed, (M&S this time around which was just too yummy), followed by making something beautiful with the treasure provided by Nalu Beads, practicing the yoga crows along with plenty of banter (and ‘Get your crow out’ was born). Just the way we like it.
This led on to another set on the water for everyone with much more crashing and landing tricks. And the day was topped off with a chill out in the log burning hot tub. Such a perfect way to end the day with the raddest wake chicks around.
Thank you to all the girls who came, you were awesome! xx
On Saturday 22nd July, we had our latest Wake Daze event which was held down at Club Wake Park. Because we live in England, we’re savvy, and we kept a close watch on the weather forecast. Of course it was forecast to rain on our Wake Daze! So we switched the day around a bit and all worked out for us in the end. We kicked off with a meet and greet and then straight into a lakeside yoga session with the stunning yogi Parker Rose who led us through a great routine, in the morning sunshine, that was challenging through to relaxing to get us geared up for our riding. Yoga was followed by some juices and yummy treats to fuel us back up for some water action.
Then we hit the water hard. The shredder babes were all trying something new and everyone came away with an improvement or a complete new trick! Stoke levels were HIGH.
The first water session finished and we broke for lunch in time to miss being out in the heavy rain. Fuelled up and ready to go again, we hit the water for the second session where even more tricks were being thrown down. Props to all the chicks, you were all pushing it! Some doubles riding helped push a couple even further! Obviously the rain hit again but it was ok, we had a log burning hot tub that smelt divine, to warm up in.
Once warmed up and changed and a hot chocolate in hand, the Nalu Beads workshop took place where everyone got make something beautiful with their lovely gifts from Nalu.
It was a great day and we here at Wake Daze had a blast hanging with such a rad group of shredder babes, you made the day ladies!! See you on the water soon xx
The goodie bags are being prepped for this Saturdays event down at Club Wake Park. You will be able to get your paws on the limited edition Wake Daze hats, and also your Nalu Beads for our workshop on the day!
