Early morning sessions are designed to take advantage of the smoothest riding conditions of the day. A few runs before work or school can change your outlook on the entire day.

What Will I Learn?

Let your instructor know your goals for the morning and they will be able to offer personalized instruction to help you achieve them. Our instructors focus on proper body positioning and technique first to ensure your progression stays consistent.

Is this the right class for me?

Whether you are looking for instruction or just want to get out and ride, our sunrise wakeboarding class takes advantage of the phrase “the early bird gets the worm.” Enjoy the best wakeboarding conditions Mission Bay has to offer while riding behind a top-of-the-line Super Air Nautique GS20. We provide current year Liquid Force or O’Brien wakeboards for you to use.


  • Riders should be confident getting up on a wakeboard consistently.
  • This class is open to participants 14 years and older. 
  • A general liability waiver is required to participate. Anyone under 18 must have a waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian and will be required to wear a life vest at all times while on the boat and a helmet while riding.
  • Participants must acknowledge that they are water safe (able to swim 50 meters and comfortably tread water).

How to Prepare

  • The first session of the month you will meet your instructors in the lobby to sign your waiver and grab your gear. After the first week, class will meet at the take-off zone of ski beach on the grass near the southeast corner of the parking lot.
  • You are welcome to bring your own board and gear. Personal lifejackets must be USCG approved impact vests. 
  • Bring sunscreen and a refillable water bottle. MBAC has a water bottle refilling station and there are a number of restaurants nearby, but keep in mind that food and drink are not available for purchase at MBAC. Lockers and showers are provided.
  • Parking can be a challenge at MBAC, especially during the summer months. Please visit our parking page for more information
