The Shack

Housed merrily upon Western Beach in Royal Victoria Dock, The Shack is home to WakeUp Docklands' reception for wakeboard and stand up paddleboarding, as well as a comprehensive shop stocking the finest boards, boots and wetsuits available to suit everybody's needs.
Even if you're not in the market to ride or buy, The Shack is a fully licensed bar, so feel free to drop by, grab a couple of drinks and take a load off whilst watching the action out on the waterfront.
The Team are always eager to help, whatever you're enquiry, so if you're wondering what session is right for you to book, you're looking to get yourself a new board setup that compliments your ride or you just want to chew the fat over the latest goings on, you'll find the Team ready and willing!

The "Gold" Cable

Positioned outside The Shack you will find The "Gold" Cable, so called because of the unique golden colouring of it's System 2.0 carrier; the only of it's kind. The reasoning for this is down to this particular cable being the 100th produced by the cable's designers, Sesitec.

The "Gold" Cable is a straight-line, two-tower cable system, spanning 180m over a UNIT Bank, UNIT Pipe, Industry Large Kicker, Industry Manual Pad with Top Rail and UNIT Small Kicker. Sessions on The Gold Cable are ideally suited to those progressing into the use of obstacles and upwards, though sessions of all types can be taken here. 

The "Blue" Cable

Beginners and those just learning or in need of a refresh will find themselves most at home on The "Blue" Cable. With nothing but the wet stuff surrounding you, combined with our Team's top notch tuteledge we'll have you up and riding in no time!
