Plans approved for Dundee wakeboarding centre

Dundee wakeboarding centre 2A wakeboarding centre at Dundee’s City Quay could be open by the Summer after councillors gave the project the green light.

Located at Victoria Docks, the project by Dunbar-based outdoor activity company Foxlake Adventures will include support accommodation, a harbour gangway, west harbour access pontoons and two wakeboard tows.

Aim Design, the architects behind the project, said the phased development will begin with a wakeboarding facility and pontoons before expanding with a ‘high-wire water challenge’ at a later date.

The application was formally lodged by Dundee City Council itself, with Foxlake being a tenant.

Callum Mark, one of the directors of Foxlake, said: “I’m absolutely delighted.

“The process has taken a year and a half to two years so it’s great to be at this stage.

“We are hoping to open for this summer. We don’t have a date yet but for the summer holidays or thereabouts.

“Our focus at the moment is the wakeboarding and pushing participation for that for females and young people in Dundee.”
