How to Wakeboard in Bangkok; All You Need To Know!

Bangkok gets hammered time and time again by travellers as they pass through. I’m constantly having to defend it, whether it’s singing about my amazing Bangkok Staycation, or after writing about the perfect Bangkok Itinerary, or awesome day trips from Bangkok to Ayutthaya, Koh Laan, Kanchanaburi I thought I’d add my personal favourite – wakeboarding in Bangkok.

Lake Taco, about 45 minutes from the city centre, offers some awesome wakeboarding opportunities for novices or experts. There are no boats here, they use the cable system which runs a circuit around the lake so you can climb on and off quickly, it’s a great way to learn because when you crash (often) you can get right back up and try again.

Where do you Wakeboard in Bangkok?

You have two options when you want to wakeboard Bangkok. Taco Lake Wakeboarding, or Thai WakePark. My advice is to go to Taco Lake, it’s closer to the city, it’s friendlier, and it’s much cheaper. Thai Wake Park is much snazzier, for the local professionals, and it’s triple the price. If you’re an expert perhaps TWP is a better choice, everyone else, stick to Taco Lake

How much does it cost to go wakeboard in Bangkok?

TACO LAKE: 400 baht ($13) for 2 hours or 500 baht ($17) for the whole day. The park normally opens at midday and stays open until around 6pm.

Thai Wake Park: 850THB for 2 hours.

 

Do I need to rent equipment when I wakeboard Bangkok?

No TACO LAKE offer free wakeboards, kneeboards, life jackets and helmets. If you want high-end equipment you can bring your own or rent them from the shop for around $5 per day. TWP charges to rent everything though.

How do I get to wakeboarding in Bangkok at Taco Lake?

If you’re going to TACO Lake, then check out the google map below.

 

The best way is to take a taxi (use the GRAB app) all the way there, should only be about 200THB ($7), or if you’re on a tight budget, BTS to Odum Suk, then a taxi from there. NOTE: You can always call them on 023167810 and ask the taxi/bus driver to speak to the people at the wakeboarding place.

For Thai Wake Park, type in Thai Wake Park Lumlukka, that’s the nearest wakeboard Bangkok under their brand, to Bangkok city centre and use a taxi there too.

I’ve never wakeboarded before, is that ok?

Absolutely, I had never done it before either – it’s a great place to start. The Thai’s are so friendly and helpful you’ll probably end up with a free, impromptu tutor session – that often happens to me when they see my faceplant for the 20th time. Taco lake is a MUCH friendlier place for this, so if you’re in this boat, definitely go to TACO lake.

What about food and drinks? Lunch?

At Taco Lake, there’s a local food stall there, serving delicious Thai food for around 40 baht ($1.30) and beers for 50 baht ($1.80). Just leave the beers until after the wakeboarding.

At TWP there are plenty of pricier options for food and drinks too.

Thailand is such a great place to backpacker, work or travel. With so many cheap flights to Bangkok, it’s a perfect time to visit. But I ask you one thing, don’t knock Bangkok until a local has shown you around. There’s a lot more to it than Khao San road and Nana Plaza. Happy travels!
