Rules for Skiing and Wakeboarding
- Water skiers should keep more than 10 metres from the bank and jetties in order to minimize damage to the banks and property. We believe the distance should be greater – where the river is less than 30 metres wide, boaters are advised to proceed at minimum speed and use the centre line of the river.
- Every boat pulling a skier or wakeboarder is required by law to have an observer on board and red flagObey the “red flag” rules.
- Ensure all hand signals are known and understood.
- No modifications to vessels are permitted for wakeboarding that may cause additional displacement or wave amplitude, resulting in damage to banks and jetties.
