“Great set up for a day on the water!”
Review of WakeUp Docklands

WakeUp Docklands
Reviewed 19 November 2013

My partner and I recently spotted this venue as we took the cable car over to the O2 and decided to come back and try standup paddleboarding which seems to be a fast growing sport. We had a great time and with a little instruction we were up standing and having a great time exploring the docks. Since then I have been back to try the wakeboarding - again needing instruction which was very helpful and before long I was up riding. The facilities are great, warm clean showers and a restaurant/bar on a barge next to the centre where you can watch everyone enjoying themselves on the water.

Great to be able to play on the water without leaving the city. And with the manmade beach, the floating "Oiler" bar, wakeboarding shop, Emirates "Air Line" cable car, and various other new attractions all in the same location, it's actually a cool place to hang-out for people of all ages, even if you're not wakeboarding. Super-friendly staff too.

Great wake boarding facilities, the best in Europe. Together with a converted Oiler bar (fuel oil barge turned into bar) next door and a chilled out clubhouse area, makes this the perfect place to spend a summers day in London.

I'd not tried this before but in a couple of sessions I was attempting jumps. They're a really accommodating and patient bunch of people and the centre was well stocked with equipment and wet suits yet still very affordable. I didn't get cold once!
I'll definitely go again.

a great way to learn wake boarding and enjoy some barge refreshments. the sheltered dock definetly helps beginners get up and the coaching will (moslty!) hv you turning and looping in one session. you scrub up in the oiler barge which was a great place sit n the sun and embellish just how good your were on the board with a few cold ones. not your average london day out!
