It was a day of firsts yesterday @ballitoskipark and we’re still buoyant with the feeling of being in the water, trying something new and succeeding after a few failed efforts and belly flops. Check out stories for the highlights. Too much fun!

📍Ballito Ski Park

🥳 Fun factor: Mnandini! In other words: Awesome!

🏋🏾‍♀️ Fitness level required: this one is a bit tricker than tubing and it’s very much about relaxing, taking it slow & smooth, and then gentle control as you ski blissfully through the dam.

👧🏽 Suitability for kids: Yes – probably for those over 6yo although they didn’t specify an age limit so make sure you ask. Apparently some kids just get it – let them try 🤷🏽‍♀️

💸 Costs: R160pp for 15min all equipment included. The time is tried and tested – and yes it’s worth it.

🤩 What we loved most: all these water sport that we assumed were out of reach are in fact accessible & readily available to try – and it’s SO much fun! It’s thoroughly invigorating “getting” a skill, and the the thrill of boarding (?) at speed across the dam was exhilarating.

🚦What you need to know: the advantage of kneeboarding compared to other tow rope sport (wake boarding, water skiing etc) is that it’s an easier learning curve and if you fall or, when you fall, you’re much closer to the water.

In short: for a natural high, give this one a try 💦
