The reservoir is bounded by the canyons of Ebron and Drac and belongs to the Isère department. It was created in 1961 after the built of a 145 m / 476 ft dam. The reservoir is up to 10 km / 6.3 mi long and in some places it reaches at 300 m / 984 ft wide. On the lake, it is often windy and wavy, something that makes it one of the best places to practice water sports.

Wakeboarding in Bamburi Beach, Mombasa, Coast Province Kenya
The beach is calm due to an offshore reef and during high tides it can get narrow at places and also seaweed infested. The natural coral reef which is between 0.5 km/546 yd and 2 km/1.5 mi, makes it a more safe place for wake-boarding within the reef .
Given that the best months to visit the spot is from January to March, where days are dry and humidity at very comfortable levels, that is why wake boarding at the Bamburi beach is an all year round activity.
Wake-boarding at this spot can be an amazing experience on both small and medium size tides, but mostly it would depend on ones experience. Most importantly though, is to make sure that one does not go beyond the reef. The speed-boat captain controls the speed…for the amateur and the dare devil as well!!
All in all, the spot is suitable for both experienced and amateur wake-boarders. Wake-boarding is conducted on daily basis depending on tides and winds suitability.
