About us

BACKPADDOCK LAKES IS THE ONLY VENUE IN NEW ZEALAND TO PROVIDE BOTH BOAT & CABLE PARK RIDING!!!


Set against a picturesque backdrop, Backpaddock Lakes is Central Hawkes Bay’s exclusive water sports park. It is the only venue in the country to provide BOTH boat riding and cable park riding in the same place!

We have three fantastic lakes dedicated to watersport and wildlife. The park is designed specifically for wakeboarding, water-skiing and barefooting. There is also a wetland area which is home to the local wildlife.

The main lake was carefully designed and has a top class slalom course and is the perfect size to run competitions for all categories up to a national level and is 760m long, 100m-150m wide, 2m-3m deep.

This venue is the perfect mix of fast-paced action and tranquillity making it suitable for everyone, whether you’re out on a wakeboard or boat, or setting yourself up as a spectator to chill-out and soak up these stunning surroundings. We even have a children’s playground!

This park caters to first timers and those of you that need an annual pass because you’re addicted to watersports and want to be here every free chance you get
