Wakeboarding in Austria

It’s like snowboarding in summer, only better. So, wake up and go waking!

The only requirement is to have fun and get creative! Let’s get shredding on a wicked 420-metre cable in this state-of-the-art Rixen five-pillar cable park at one of the sickest locations north of the equator. Crazy obstacles by Shape get your mouth watering. You can’t wait to perform groovy stunts where the pros train, then jump on your board and feel the pull. Ride the waters of our 20,000 square metre lake exclusively reserved for ultimate wake action. Since 2017, this is also where the legends of the wake scene show off their skills and pull off daring jumps, board slides, and stylish board grabs on the cable at the annual Tyrolean Wakeboard Masters championships. Drop by and be part of the action!

Six handles and an overhead cable of 420 metres reduce wait times to a minimum, allowing you to get to most of your wakeboard practice in the Ötztal. The high-end lift with a height of 10.5 metres ensures maximum wake fun. Wakeboarding at the AREA 47 outdoor and adventure park in Austria lets you carve, jump, and pull tricks. A small island carefully installed as a wave-breaker and filter in the middle of our wakeboarding lake guarantees that you can ride the cleanest, calmest water possible.

Wake newbies are also welcome at our Wake AREA. While the sport is easy to learn, it may be hard to master. At Wake AREA, you can learn the fundamentals and practice your first rides without pressure, just with the support of the best wakeboarders. Take advantage of it!

AREA 47 wouldn’t be the greatest outdoor adventure park in the northern hemisphere if we didn’t have some extra tricks up our sleeves. We equip you with a helmet and lifewest to get the most of wakeboarding in Austria for free during your visit. Brand-new boards are available to rent in our Wake AREA. Book all our tickets online!

<strong>The cable runs slower for the first 2 hours a day for beginners, then at full speed.</strong>

Are you a dog lover?  You are welcome to bring your four-legged friend to the Wake AREA – just make sure to not let him into the water.

Any questions?

Since we only have limited capacities, we recommend you to book your Wake AREA ticket online in advance. If we still have enough places available, you can spontaneously buy a ticket directly at the Wake AREA Shop. Courses and camps like Wake School Basic have to be booked in advance.

In the case of a cancellation at short notice, we must adhere to our terms and conditions and therefore also charge cancellation fees. If there are still enough starting places available, an additional booking is quite feasible.

Yes, our activities take place in any weather, unless it is dangerous for safety (such as thunderstorms).  In safety-threatening situations, the Wake AREA will be evacuated. In case of rain the Wake AREA is open as usual, because you will get wet anyway.
