About Us.

The UNSW Waterski & Wakeboard Club is made up of a mixture of current UNSW students and active alumni who all share a common interest in water sports. The club hosts events for new and advanced skiiers on weekdays and weekends at the Hawkesbury River, all year round. Because of our many members and their diverse talents and interests, we are constantly striving to host a range of different sports besides just waterskiing and wakeboarding. Having two boats at the river, one dedicated to waterskiing, and the other for wakeboarding, allows both boarders and skiers a great run at any given time.

Everyone is Welcome!

No matter your level of experience with boarding or skiing, our club doesn't distinguish. We welcome anyone, even if you never waterskiied or wakeboarded before. Its all about fun and improvement, and helping each other out.

No gear? Don't fret!

Having your own gear is awesome, but if you don't, there's no reason to worry. We offer a range both beginner and pro equipment, including vests, wakeboards, waterskis, and more. We even have our own wakeskate if you're feeling like a challenge!

Become a Driver!

If you already own a registered NSW Boat License, only a few simple club assessments stand between you and having driver proficiency. All our drivers have access to both the Green and Blue boat whenever they feel. All they have to do is advertise a ski or board day via email and the boats are all theirs.

Crazy Weekends!

Every now and then, the club stays in the cabins at Cliftonville over a weekend for what we call ‘Crazy Weekends’. The two days are filled with boarding, skiing, food, drinks, games, music and anything else you want to do, plus its a great way to meet everyone in the club.

Where We Ride.

The club skis and boards up at Cliftonville Lodge on the beautiful Hawksbury River. The spot, only an hours drive from the Sydney CBD, has been a prime location for skiers and boarders for many years. The route takes you along some winding roads, arriving at a secluded lakeside area with a cafe, a pool, picnic areas, barbeques, toilet facilities and lodges.
