Story:
Situated at the tropical and majestic Umtamvuna River Lodge we offer you a diverse range of water sports activities. From Wakeboarding to Stand Up Paddle Boarding we’ve got you covered. Run and owned by some of South Africa’s premium wake boarders and wake skaters we provide first class training and service with a fun vibe and good times approach. Aiming to have our guests leaving with a smile and aiding in the growth of wake boarding and wake skating in KZN we want to give you the best water experience the Umtamvuna River has to offer.

Our full list of services includes:
• Wakeboarding and Wake skating Lessons
• Boat Rides and Cruises
• Tube Rides
• Water-skiing and Knee boarding
• Water Taxi Service
• Jet Ski Hire
• Jetovator Training and Hire
• Fat Boy Blob Jumps
• Stand Up Paddle Board Lessons and Hire

• Grom Factory

The abundance of young and raw talent on the South Coast of KZN is too prevalent to be ignored and more importantly not fostered.

For this reason, we are giving all kids the opportunity to come and not only ride but receive coaching from some of South Africa’s best wakeboarders and wake skaters. We know that the youth is not only the most effective but also the most important way to maintain a sustainable and successful scene within SA. We believe that the South Coast not only has the resources and facilities to make up a large part of this scene but also to produce future National and World Champions.

Within our first year of the programme we have already seen unbelievable progression from groms between 8-15 years of age. Noticeably riders like Kiera Booker who is now competing nationally on the South African Wake skate Tour.

“The level of comfort and confidence these kids are showing from just a handful of times on the water is amazing, I am really excited to be a part of the program and cannot wait to see what these kids can do” – Matti Buys on his views on the Grom Factory.

Pair this cable with a 3-5ft skate ramp and our fleet of boats and the opportunities for learning for these kids are endless.

Our Grom factory runs every Sunday from 11am to 3pm and gives the kids the opportunity to choose between wakeboarding and Wake skating as well as making use of the skate ramp. It is not only a day full of fun but also a venue that allows the kids to make friends, and most importantly have fun in a safe and constructive environment.

Wakeboarding has given me and many others the opportunity to travel the world and experience many different cultures and ways of life. It has taught me many invaluable lessons in life. It has humbled me and taught me that nothing in life comes without hard work and dedication. Grom Factory is the perfect starting point for kids to hang out and learn on and off the water under the guidance of professional athletes where they can strive to better themselves in a positive environment. – Kevin Dry on his views on the Grom Fa
