Our usual weekly vacation in Laguna became a mini adventure. I was scared at first to try Wakeboarding, but yeah, I must set aside my fear and just go. Another thing was that, I ticked off another thing on my bucket lists, finally!
Follow this link for the complete direction on how to get to Republ1c Wakepark.
We paid P1,000 each for 2-hour ride inclusive of gear rental. The fee is P250 per hour and P500 for deposit but they will return it after. For more information regarding their fees, please check their rates here.
We arrived at Republ1c Wakepark at 3:00 in the afternoon after we had our lunch at Nuvali. We asked for assistance at the counter and they told us to register our names on their computer because we are first timers (except for Mijoyce). After several minutes, they took us picture for identification purpose and gave us our helmets and life vests.
The weather was inviting. It was partially cloudy so it was really the best time to play this water sports. We chose the cottage near the beginner’s wake board lake. There’s no fee for this except that you can’t bring food inside the park because they want the guests to buy snacks on their resto.
We loved the ambiance in Republ1c, so relaxing. The place is not just perfect for friends/ barkada, but also for family.
There are restrooms and shower rooms available inside the park, one is near the restaurant, and the other one is beside the swimming pool.
After we changed our clothes, we went straight to the beginner’s lake. There was Kuya who guided us because it was our first time. After his brief intro, I got the overused (or abused) boards, placed my feet inside, and prayed that I wouldn’t fall. Of course, I fell. We all fell to the water because it was really hard to balance everything at first. But after several attempts, I completed the last ride. Yahoo!
I really enjoyed the ride. Two hours were really not enough to master the art of balancing on boards. There were also people patiently waiting for their turns that’s why we just had 6-7 rides for 2 hours. Maybe we should try the 4-hour ride next time we come back here.
Here’s the preview of my first attempt! Semplang agad..
However, if you are not really into wake boarding, you can just relax on their pool. The daily rate is just P120. Sulit na sulit!
We finished off our ride at 5:30 in the afternoon because it’s their last set for their day schedule. If you prefer the night ride, it starts at 6:00pm up to 10:00pm.
The experience was amazing! We are planning to come back again maybe sometime in October. Good thing, Nuvali Wakepark is just 2-hour drive from Manila. All of us enjoyed our trip here. Till next ride!
