Republic Wakepark: Guide for First Timers

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

The main goal for 2018 is to up my game, experience a lot of firsts and face my fears. So without wasting any time, on the first week of January, I tried wakeboarding at Rebul1c Wakepark!

In a nutshell, wakeboarding is a water sport where you're strapped on a board (wakeboard) while being dragged on by a motorboat or a machine of some sort. So you basically glide on the surface of the water doing tricks and stunts. It's like a combination of surfing and skateboarding.


Republ1c Wakepark is located in Nuvali, Calamba, Laguna.

We visited on a Saturday via private car and since it's a weekend we expected the place to be packed so we came in early. We arrived around 7:30am. The wake park was still closed so they just let us hang out near the bar area.

Perks of being early: we got to pick a table near the jump-off point and the place wasn't that crowded yet. (During the afternoon, the place tends to be really packed that there'll be long lines in the jump-off point.)

  • Swimwear - be sure to wear comfortable swimwear like rash guards and board shorts
  • Sunscreen 
  • Towel
  • Toiletries
  • Slippers
  • Extra Clothes


Once the wakepark was open, we went to the registration area. First timers need to fill out some basic information and sign a waiver.

We chose the 4-hour day ride which is Php595. There's no need to give a deposit for renting the helmet, life vest and the wakeboard. You just need to surrender a valid ID to ensure that the gears will be returned properly.

There are two places where you can wakeboard, the one for Beginners Course and the Advanced Course. I was too scared to try the advanced course so I happily stayed in the beginners course (until a group of kids arrived and it got really crowded).

Aside from wakeboarding, they also have a swimming pool where you can chill (with additional charge), a resto-bar where you can order heavy meals, snacks and shakes, and a shop where you can buy your own wakeboard and other gears.

All in all it was a must-try, fun-filled experience. I would definitely definitely come back and try the advanced course next time. If you and your barkada want to try something new aside from the usual beach bumming and want something near, super fun and budget-friendly then you should totally try wakeboarding!
