First ever: Adventure Park at London Boat Show 2018

By | January 4, 2018

The Adventure Park marks the latest interactive addition to the all-new Boating & Watersports Holiday Show set to entertain and wow visitors to the London Boat Show in January.

Dedicated to promoting the world’s fastest growing watersports, it offers something brand new at this iconic event.

A first ever at a UK boat show, it will feature an indoor cable wakeboard park. The boarder will be towed by an electrically-driven cable travelling at a constant speed to offer the thrill of wakeboarding in January but without having to get wet.

This feature is ideal for novices wanting to try something new and those looking to brush up on their hobby in the winter months. Instructors will be on hand to teach the correct balance points and body positions for wakeboarding, as well as advanced techniques, like using the handle to spin and many more.

Providing plenty more adventure will be the Jobe Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) Pool. A 27m long shallow pool aimed and designed specifically to have people paddling their first metres without the need for a wetsuit.

All the family will be able to take up the SUP-challenge, make memories and have fun paddling on one of the leading models of Jobe Stand Up Paddleboards which will be available for use on the pool.

Howard Pridding, Chief Executive Officer at British Marine, comments: “Last year 668,828 Brits alone took part in growing watersports activities, an astonishing rise of 95,000 on the year before. It is great to see so many people being inspired to get out on the water through the wealth of watersports, such as Stand Up Paddleboarding and wakeboarding, on offer and we are ensuring that this growing trend is reflected in the evolution of the London Boat Show.

“The new Adventure Park will provide an interactive area for visitors to explore these water-based hobbies which are proving overwhelming accessible and beginner-friendly.”
