I go off near Eling as only a 3 minute drive from home..
Slipway is narrow and often busy over weekends in the summer.
Is flatter uop there so learning to ski / wakeboard is much easier.
Never picked up any illness in the water! Have taken a group of 20 friends as they have a picnic on the beach and then we just do watersports all afternoon. Usually get a 5 hour tide window to launch recover.
Also as the ski area is only about a 3 minute drive from where you launch you don't have to worry about towing toys a long way or having a long ride to get there.
Watch out for the chavs tho!! Although I have been doing jetskiing this summer there myself, I have not been entering Eling Creek at 30knots as others do!
