Combines every other watersport all in one! Lay, sit, kneel, stand… you can ride a ZUP™ Board just about any way you want! Perhaps the easiest watersports activity in Hilton Head, ZUP™ Boarding provides a variety of riding methods due to it’s unique shape and size. We’ve found it replaces a kneeboard, wakeboard, and even water skis as an all-around approach to watersports. Plus, it seems much easier to ride for a variety of ages, sizes, and skill levels. Find out why more and more Live Oac guests are choosing the ZUP™ Board for watersports fun.
Almost all ages can have fun being pulled behind the boat on a tube. Get on, hang on, and have fun!
One of Live Oac’s favorite activities is tubing in Hilton Head, and we’ve taken thousands of people for a fun ride through the backcountry creeks. Tube solo or double behind the boat and you’ll slide across the water through the twists and turns of Hilton Head’s inshore waterways. Slow and mild or fast and wild, you can have an easy cruise or exciting bumps and bounces. Tubing is a summer fun crowd pleaser and a great family outing.
Waterski with Hilton Head Island’s Adventure Professionals.™ No experience necessary. Get up, stand up!
Likewise, for those that prefer the more traditional approach of two skis, we offer water skiing in Hilton Head. While it usually takes a few tries to get it figured out, Live Oac’s watersports instructors will guide you through the steps for the most effective methods to learn to water ski. The reward, standing up and gliding across the water is an amazing experience! First time skiers are welcome, and more experienced skiers will be just as comfortable. Live Oac captains are wake boarders and water skiers who are just as selective as you might be when it comes to choosing the right water and giving you the best ride possible.
Whether you’re a first time wake boarder or an X-Games pro, we’ll show you a good time wake boarding in Hilton Head!
Our most popular standup water sport is wake boarding, and Live Oac has Hilton Head’s best wake boarding waters just minutes from our dock. When wake boarding, you’ll start off in the water, with both feet on the board and get pulled up and to the surface, riding the board similar to a snowboard but on the water. In fact, we’ve found that people with experience on the mountain tend to pick up wake boarding very quickly.
A Live Oac Captains’ favorite! Kneeboarding is a great option for a wide range of ages and skill levels. Fun for the whole family!
Take it a step further with a more challenging and popular activity for Hilton Head visitors. Kneeboarding is a great choice for watersport beginners, and you start off lying down and then climbing up to kneel on the board. It’s a great transition sport and a nice step towards the stand-up water sports like wake boarding or skiing. Kneeboarding is a great choice for younger riders, too, who might find the stand-up sports more initially challenging.
Our family has been visiting Hilton Head Island for over 20 years, and this is by far the best thing we've ever done on vacation.
