Level 2 - Cable Wakeboard Coach

BWSW Level 2 Cable Wakeboard Coach 

Who is it for?

The Level 2 Cable Wakeboard Coach is recommended for anyone who wants to coach ‘beginner’ to ‘basic intermediate’ riders at a wake park. Candidates will be certified to coach wakeboarders basic foundational tricks and all the necessary skills to guide them safely through to riding out their first basic feature (obstacle) attempts. The qualification meets the minimum standard for coaching unaccompanied at the level outlined below.

What do you learn? 

The Level 2 Cable Wakeboard Coach is a blended learning coaching course that covers many areas relevant to being a SAFE, FUN and EFFECTIVE coach. The focus of the course is mostly practical but during online sessions there will be some coaching and communication theory as well as technical wakeboard theory learnings during online sessions.   

You will ride and coach for each other on the course up to a level of riding that could be seen from a 'basic intermediate’ level rider and covering everything up to and including Wake Park Progressive Edge Silver (Stage 2). This includes surface rotations, switch riding, ollies and foundational/basic feature tricks.

Before the course

Prior to attending the course, all candidates must have the following:

  • BWSW Membership.
  • Level 1 Cable Wakeboard Instructor Qualification.
  • Be aged 16 years or over (note, to be a licensed coach you must be 17).  
  • Be able to complete all skills on the Wake Park Progressive Edge Gold Award (Stage 2). A candidate will not get ‘signed off’ as reaching the required level without the required riding standard being demonstrated/proven.
    NB - Where it is not possible to demonstrate the necessary skills/prove required riding level during the course, the candidate will need to provide proof of riding level through video submission and/or references from licensed Level 2 coaches
