Master the art of the stand up and try one of the world's favourite watersports
Time Out Dubai staff
Not as easy as it seems, waterskiing is great fun if you’ve mastered the ‘stand-up’ and incredibly hard work if you haven’t quite got the hang of it yet. Like wakeboarding, you’ll be dragged along at high velocity behind a speedboat, yet unlike wakeboarding it’s a lot more difficult to then progress and pull of stunts and acrobatic moves. Try Watercooled for lessons. Good luck! Dhs250 for 20 minutes, plus entrance fee (depends on the day). Open daily 10am-5.30pm.
