An unforgettable day with the class

With your class in Lakeside Paradise? Discover all the possibilities here!

From a full or half day of sports to a multi-day course with an overnight stay and good food. Everything is possible at Lakeside Paradise. In addition, thanks to our cooperation with Surfers Paradise and Sportoase Duinenwater we can offer every group a tailor-made service.

Full or half sports days

If you are looking for an unusual, tailor-made sports day, you have come to the right place. The cable car, the beating heart of our club, is the perfect activity for an unforgettable day. 
Here we teach the following sports: wakeboarding, water skiing and kneeboarding. We always start with kneeboarding, then switch to water skiing and finally finish with wakeboarding. 

These extreme water sports are not to be underestimated. This is why we combine a full sports day with half a day in the subtropical swimming pool Sportoase. If your group wants a different interpretation, no problem, we are happy to discuss it.
The swimming pool is 50 metres from our club. So there is no need to travel far. 

Multi-day internships and sea classes

Schools can also choose to stay at Lakeside Paradise for several days. We have a Sport Hostel with 80 beds in 10 rooms. 
We offer catering formulas for groups ranging from a breakfast buffet, a sandwich lunch with a drink and soup to a hot meal or a barbecue.

During your stay at Lakeside Paradise you can, of course, also do sports. This can be done at our cable car or with our colleagues on the beach at Surfers Paradise. Would you like to organise an evening of swimming or a quiz as a group? Please let us know and we will be happy to help you.

Our goal is to give you an unforgettable time.

Capacity

As we want to ensure quality and safety, we go up to a maximum of 120 pupils, using a rotation system for the activities. This will be adapted to your wishes and above all to the current weather conditions. Bad weather and rain are in most cases not a problem, as the pupils go into the water wearing a surfing suit anyway.

Safety

All activities are accompanied by qualified instructors. They are perfectly capable of giving the necessary instructions and explanations in Dutch, French and English. In addition, our instructors are trained annually in rescue techniques and first aid, to ensure that everyone can be helped perfectly and correctly.  

Cooperation

From Lakeside Paradise it is easy to move to our beach club Surfers Paradise where all beach and sea sports can be practised (surfing, kite surfing, windsurfing, sea kayaking, rafting, beach games, volleyball). As an additional option, we also have the cooperation of the swimming pool Sportoase close to our club. 

Wakeboarding, Waterskiing & Kneeboarding

When the cable car turns, the heart of Lakeside Paradise beats. The main activity and the showpiece of our club cannot and should not be missing from any sports day. Before the students get on the water, a thorough explanation of the 'rules' of the cableway is given, to let them get on the water in complete safety. After the explanation, everyone always starts with kneeboarding and then switches to water skiing. When they have mastered these two sports they can start wakeboarding.

"Splash of the titans

A "Splash of the Titans" consists of several activities such as SUP (stand-up paddleboarding), kayaking & SUP-zilla. This part of the sports day always takes place on the so-called 'Lakeside' part of our lake.
During the activity, everyone gets an initiation of the different sports to become an accomplished water sportsman at the end of the day. Depending on the time available, two or three of the above sports are done. This formula of activities is ideal for groups of younger age. Everything is explained in a playful manner.

Mountain Bike

In addition to water sports, you can also opt for a recreational trip through the beautiful municipality of Knokke-Heist.
From farm roads, between the dunes and through the woods, we head towards the Dutch border to the "Haas" in 't Zwin. During the tour, you can choose to take a short break at Surfers Paradise. After this short break, we get back on our bikes and head for Lakeside Paradise. Depending on the time available and the pace of the group, we either return along the dyke or test our racing legs again.
