The Department of Sport and Recreation organised for a group of boys from the academy to try wakeboarding.

They were also lucky enough to meet some of the world’s best wakeboarders who were in town for the Waterski and Wakeboard Federation World Cup, including world number one wakeboarder Harley Clifford.

The boys tried an urban style of wakeboarding where a winch is used to pull the wakeboard along.

The Clontarf Foundation uses Australian Rules Football to engage with and improve opportunities for young Aboriginal men.

Academy operations officer Jake Foley said it was great to do something different with the boys.
