Fresh water water sports (non-Haeundae, etc.)

Anyone know of any cool ramps or docks on fresh water lakes or rivers around here in which one could enjoy skiing, boarding, or sailing?

I'm just on the Nakdong north of Busan if there's any place to at least find some club to join up with.

I used to go on Andong lake but that's a couple hours north.

There is water skiing at Millak on the Su Yeong River. No idea if they have ramps or anything.  It's just pass the crossroads that leads to Costco or over the bridge to Bexco. Map on details on their site

Thanks for this.

 

If anyone's interested, near Hapcheon Dam on the Nakdong south of Daegu in northern Kyungnam there's that rents skis, wakeboards, banana boats, etc.  It's situated near beautiful Haeinsa temple, one of my favs in Korea near Goryeong.

Rafting outfits can be found nearby.

Here is a link to details about most water sport places in and around Busan:

I cannot vouch for how up-to-date the info is.

Though, as mattsid said, there is a wakeboarding/jet ski place on the Suyoung River opposite Shinsaegae department store.

There is also the Nakdong River, which has places near Eulsukdo that offer rafting, canoeing and windsurfing.

If you are into sailing, check out the Busan Expat Sailing Club at http://www.busansailing.com/

Finally, at the far right of Gwangali Beach, the new Gwangali Ocean Leports Center opened this week. (http://www.suyeong.go.kr/96_gubo/s4.asp?view_type=view&idx=11106&select_...)

I'm afraid that you will discover that most water sports in the Busan area are sea based.
