ABOUT THE WAKEBOARD PORTUGAL PROJECT
The Wakeboard Portugal project, debuted in 2015, is setting Portugal on the wakeboard world map! In Castelo do Bode Lake, on over than 30kms we can find the World’s first Wakeboard Resort. With 5 different locations, each one with one two tower system and cutting edge water features, all connected with boat transfers, this is a world class destination for PRO athletes, wakeboard fans and visitors.
The Resort is set to be launched this June, during the Nautique European Pro/Am.
The agreement with the World Wakeboard Association (The WWA) consists on having 3 prestige international events in Portugal for 3 years. In 2015 we organised what was considered on of the best event ever, the WWA Supra Wakeboard World Championships. This year we bring to Portugal the prestige Nautique European Pro/Am.
Wakeboard Portugal’s mission is guaranteeing that wakeboard is reachable and affordable for everyone and at the same time to turn this region and the country as one world class wakeboard and tourist destination for all the fans all over the world.
