Foxlake Adventures

Foxlake is the only Cable Wakeboard Park in Scotland and is on a mission to ‘Wake up’ the Nation to this amazing sport. Located 25 miles East of Edinburgh, nestled on the edge of the John Muir Park with direct links to the John Muir Coastal Trail.

All those involved in Foxlake live and work in the local community and care about sport, the environment and the future of its young people within it. So why not bring it all together to create something new and exciting for East Lothian? They are developing their 100 acre site in such a way that it is sustainable in every aspect – providing training, employment learning, physical activity for all in an affordable way.

Activities are available for beginner riders to elite athletes - offering this new sport of wakeboarding to all levels of ability. They offer a wide range of sessions and programmes from casual Pay&Wake sessions right the way through to their development programme - the Wake Academy.

Foxlake has now launched the UK’s first ever over-water rope adventure course - Foxfall.
 
A totally unique experience, Foxfall, is part of an expansion programme aimed at capitalising on the Dunbar-based parks' huge popularity over the past year. Described by Foxlake as ‘Go Ape Meets Total Wipeout’, the course is unique in that it challenges visitors to use agility and skill, relying on the water below as the safety system with no harness to keep visitors tied on.
  
Since opening in 2012, Foxlake has introduced over 3000 people to the sport of cable wakeboarding and played an active role in supporting the Year of Natural Scotland and the adventure sports industry which already attracts 253,000 visits to Scotland each year. The park has proved hugely popular with young people as well as playing host to several high profile cable wakeboarding competitions and to training sessions for the GB snowboarding and freeski teams.
 
Foxfall is now expanding further with the support of  Social Investment Scotland (SIS)’s Scottish Investment Fund. The expansion includes the building of a second wakeboarding cable tow, opened to the public last month, and has already enabled Foxlake to create new jobs for full time and seasonal staff.
