New Forest Water Park – Just ten minutes down the road from where I live is the New Forest Water Park in Ringwood and it really is a hidden gem. The beautiful lake is surrounded by trees making it feel like your in your own little holiday getaway spot.Firstly the Wakeboard lake is awesome! Being quite a new setup means all the features are in perfect condition and there is something for everyone which keeps both the pros and the beginners happy. For girls you should keep an eye out for Ladies Mornings which are the perfect session if your a beginner or if you want to pick up some extra tips and improve your riding. They slow the cable down a little bit so it’s not as intimidating for learners, also it’s nice to have some female company on the lake!The great thing about this place is you can camp here! So if you are looking for a place where you can have a nice wakeboard break then you will be more than happy here. They do have pitches with electric hook up too so they are caravan friendly!There are toilet and washing up facilities next to the camping area and there is a bar area in the clubhouse too offering a good range of food & drinks. It really is a beautiful place to camp and there are even pitches that are right next to the waters edge which is perfect for evening bbq’s. New for this Summer is the inflatable Aqua Park! this looks so much fun, it’s kind of like the total wipeout course. If you have a birthday or stag/hen party coming up why not have a wakeboard session followed by a bounce around on the aqua park.
I’m here every week as my boyfriend simon is a member and Wakeboards here all the time and there is a lovely atmosphere. The staff are friendly and it’s just a really nice place to relax and enjoy the summer weather 🙂 Here is a wakeboard edit I made for Simon last summer –
