Republ1c Wakepark Nuvali: A Non-Wakeboarder's Review

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Another thing that I crossed out in my 2012 bucket list is Wakeboarding. I initially planned to do it in CWC but unfortunately our trip in CamSur did not push through. Good thing, Republ1c Wakepark Nuvali officially opened on June 15, 2012.
Pro's Lake
It was my first time to set foot on a wakeboarding facility and for me Republ1c is world class (at least on a non-wakeboarder's perspective lol.) The ambience is perfect. The pro's lake is quite intimidating though.

Some random wakeboarders showing off amazing stunts. They made it look so easy. 

I availed the 2 hour pass and I was able to try 4 times. Unfortunately, the wait time is too long! It would have been better if there were 2 cable lines. The beginner's lake is quite small so I hope this will be improved.

How to get there
The Wakepark is located in the innermost part of Nuvali Complex past Solenad II. 
Via Public Transpo:
Take a Bus bound to Sta.Rosa or Balibago(Jac Liner/Jam) from GMA Kamuning, Buendia or TAFT - > Get off at Coca Cola Plant located in Sta. Rosa Exit - > Ride a tricycle to Paseo de Sta.Rosa - > Take the free shuttle service to Republ1c.The earliest schedule is at 7am, if you missed it you have to wait for the next trip.

free shuttle service
This is a new facility so expect some plus and minuses. 
- proximity
- cheap cable rates
- perfect ambience
- food is great!
- long wait in the Beginner's lake
- no lockers

Wakeboarding is becoming a fast growing extreme sports in the Philippines, and Republ1c has made it easy for people like me to experience this kind of heart stopping activity. I think what sets it apart from other wakeboarding facilities is its proximity to the Metro. For someone who works from Mondays through Fridays, this is indeed a perfect weekend getaway.
