Best Wakesurfing Schools in Singapore for Beginners

5 Best Wakesurfing Schools in Singapore for Beginners

Quality of lessons - We selected schools with beginner-friendly classes, coaches who give clear instructions, and high-quality equipment (e.g. tow boats, surfboards, and life vests).

Reputation - We picked schools operating for at least three years with highly experienced coaches.

Customer service - We assessed their ease of booking, responsiveness, and friendliness.

Value for money - We compared the lesson fees to average wakesurfing class rates in Singapore.

Wakesurfing is a perfect entry-level option if you want to dip into water sports for the first time. You don’t need prior surfing experience, and the activity doesn’t require you to visit a surfing spot with actual barrel waves and sand breaks.

The sport relies on a tow boat’s wake to create waves, meaning you can do it even on a lake!

You want to learn the basics now, don’t you? Here’s a list of the city’s best wakesurfing schools you should check out!

How much is wakesurfing in Singapore?

Wakesurfing classes in Singapore usually cost around $150 to $200+ per hour per student. The said rates include the boat ride, surfboards, and safety vests.

Prices can get higher if you opt for a private class (starts at $300) or if you want to combine wakesurfing with other related sports such as wakeboarding and wakefoiling (starts at $250).

Wakesurfing lessons can be pricey in the long run, as you need to attend multiple sessions to excel. Some serious students spend around $1,000 a month for lessons!

1. DREAMWAKE Academy

Hours: Tuesday to Wednesday, Friday: 9:00 AM – 7:00 PM, Thursday: 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM, Saturday to Sunday: 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM

We love DREAMWAKE Academy for its quality wakesurfing sessions, well-maintained Axis boat, and stellar customer service.

Thanks to head coach Oliver’s friendly approach, beginners like me didn’t feel intimidated. He helped me grasp the basics with clear instructions, plus pointed out faults gently but firmly, helping me learn faster!

Moreover, the school’s boat impressed us with its clean and comfortable seats! 

Booking a lesson with the school is relatively easy, thanks to the online booking platform. However, slots are available in advance for up to three months only, and weekend classes run out fast!

Also, note that DREAMWAKE’s rates are a bit pricey at $220+ per hour, so prepare your wallet!


  • Easy-to-use booking form
  • Friendly and competent head coach
  • Well-maintained boat


  • Might be pricey
  • Weekend classes might be hard to book

Patient and fun instructor

Beginner-friendly coaching

Amazing experience, you get a dedicated coach and captain unlike others. Most of us were beginners and with Oliver’s great tips and superb coaching we were all able to stand and excel. Great big boat and it’s super clean.

2. Wakemusters



Address: 11 Northshore Dr, Singapore 828670 (Google Maps)

Contact: +65 9048-7060 | [email protected]

Hours: Monday to Friday: 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM, Saturday to Sunday: 8:00 AM – 7:00 PM

Beginners who want to save a few dollars should check out Wakemusters’ group classes. The 2.5-hour session is only $150 per enrollee (one of the lowest rates in the city)!

Moreover, the school’s coaches are all wakesurfing medalists, so you can rest assured that you’ll learn from the greats! 

Many first-timers we interviewed said their instructors provided helpful tips and kept the session enjoyable. Also, their failed attempts didn’t discourage them because the coaches were kind! 

However, people enrolled in a full-capacity class (five pax) only have 30 minutes to practice. If you don’t want to deal with time pressure, you can opt for the private class, but that’s far more expensive at $350 per hour.

Also, Wakemusters prefers to chat and text rather than call when transacting with customers, which some might dislike.


  • Affordable group sessions
  • Senior industry player
  • Wakefest medalist coaches


  • Private sessions are pricey
  • Possible slow response

Customer Reviews

Firm yet fun instructors

“My friend introduced me to wakesurfing last year and I have since fallen in love with it. I started my journey with Wakemusters and my experience has been nothing but full of fun and laughter. Yes, sometimes my coaches can be very “fierce” but they do it because they want to push me to my full potential. I don’t see Wakemusters as just another wakesurfing operator. I see them as my extended family. Thanks so much for the amazing experience and for many more to come. You guys are the best!” – Debby Wijayakusuma, Google Reviews 

Coaches that can get you up on board before the session ends

“Awesome first session with the Wakemusters team! Clean seacraft, experienced instructors that were able to get all 4 of us standing and surfing by the end of the session. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and will definitely be back.” – Tiffany Chua, Google Reviews

3. Ryders Singapore



 Address: 11 Northshore Dr, Marina Country Club, Singapore 828670 (Google Maps)

Contact: +65 9189-5957 | [email protected]

Hours: Daily: 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM

Ryders Singapore is the place to go if you want to learn wakesurfing and wakeboarding. Learning both sports in one school is convenient!

Moreover, Ryders’ class rates are reasonable. Lessons here cost around $150 to $200 per hour for either wakesurfing or wakeboarding. Of course, combined classes will be pricier at $300+. 

Many beginners who wish to return for more sessions also find the school’s booking platform helpful, as they can choose their coach when selecting a slot. Some stick to one instructor, while others explore their options.

However, some may find booking the same instructor challenging if the teacher is popular. 

Ryders Singapore also has a few misses in customer service. We tried to call the school and had to try for several days before someone finally picked up.  


  • Students can pick a coach upon booking
  • Reasonable rates
  • Offers combined wakesurfing and wakeboarding sessions


  • Booking difficulties possible
  • Customer service could use improvements

4. Surf N Wake



Address: 11 Northshore Dr, Singapore 828670 (Google Maps)

Contact: +65 9855-6623 | [email protected]

Hours: Daily: 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM

Wakesurfing newbies will find Surf N Wake’s head coach, Yen, a reliable instructor with his decade-long experience. His lessons are beginner-friendly, he’s generous with his tips, and he’s fun to work with!

His approach can also explain why the school has many returning customers despite the slightly high fees ($250+). Thankfully, Surf N Wake offers massive discounts (up to 80%), especially for first-timers.

We also love that the school allows rescheduling sessions as late as three days before the booked date. 

However, the school has only one coach, so expect limited slots.


  • Offers big discounts
  • Fun wakesurfing lessons
  • Coach has ten years of teaching experience


  • Fewer class slots than other schools
  • Pricey

Contact: +65 8820-6335 | [email protected]

WAKEPIT offers wakesurfing, wakeboarding, and wakefoiling lessons, making it a convenient choice for water sports enthusiasts.

The school stands out with its gold and silver wakeboarding medalist coaches, who, according to students, are patient, detailed in their instructions, and approachable. Better yet, the boat team includes an adorable dog named Butter!

The school also has a state-of-the-art Axis T35 boat. Its powerful wake creates beautiful, clean waves that beginners will love to ride as soon as possible! 

However, WAKEPIT’s prices are high. Also, booking a class might be a hassle, as the school doesn’t have a direct booking platform on its website (you need to use WhatsApp).


  • Top-notch boat and equipment
  • Competent coaches
  • Boat team includes a cute dog 


  • No booking platform on website
  • Pricey hourly rates
