Water sports lovers have a new playground, and it’s right here in Myrtle Beach.
Shark Wake Park, located in the North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex, was founded by Greg Norman Jr. and officially opened to the public only two years ago.
Shark Wake’s most unique feature is that a boat is not required to wakeboard. The park functions using cable systems and nine ramps to ride on as part of the main track.
But if you’re like many of us who have never stepped on a wakeboard, don’t be intimidated. Shark Wake offers beginner levels on the wake course itself as well as one-on-one lessons to make sure you feel confident when you step on the board for the first time. The park caters to professional wakeboarders as well with more experienced tracks including the highest jump at the park, appropriately named “The Big Kicker.”
With no experience and no equipment required, Shark Wake is one of the most versatile entertainment complexes on the Grand Strand.
If you’re not into wakeboarding, Shark Wake also features an Aqua Park. This inflatable, floating park is the largest on the East Coast, covering roughly an entire acre of water. Whether you’re 10 years old or a parent, you are sure to have a blast here.
In addition to the water activities, Shark Wake Park also features a waterfront viewing deck, beer garden, and the Shark Shack where you can take a load off after a day on the water with beer, wine, other beverages, and snacks.
Shark Wake Park is also conveniently located near dozens of award-winning golf courses, making it the perfect post-round activity for the entire family. Check out our wide range of nearby golf accommodations that will make it easy to include a visit to Shark Wake as part of your next golf trip!
