Corporate event management - we run events for corporate clients in London, 
  Surrey and the home counties whether for hospitality or staff days.







This event takes place on the Thorpe Lakes just off the M25 and involves a full day of wake boarding, team building games and / or a raft-building challenge for staff team building days or just a fun day out. A BBQ lunch can be provided by the water side in a most picturesque setting. Suitable for groups of 8-60 people.

You arrive at the lake (just 5 minutes off the M25) and can optionally have a bacon/ egg roll and croissant breakfast by the lake or in the clubhouse if preferred.

The group is split into teams and the team leaders and team names allocated. A safety brief is given, everyone fitted with safety gear, and then we are straight into the challenges.


Wake Boarding (or Water skiing)

Two hours of fun and spills as you and your colleagues learn to kneeboard and wakeboard. After being greeted on arrival guests watch our training DVD which as well as starting the tuition process also ensures all the health and safety aspects are covered. Then equipment is issued and everyone takes to the water in our training area where the winch system ensures everyone has mastered the basics before the group takes to the main cable, all under the watchful eyes of our instructors. From kneeboards guests can then progress to wakeboards to finish off their time on the water.


Once complete a short time is given before lunch for swimming, chilling, etc. A BBQ lunch can be provided (see typical BBQ menu)

If raft building is the chosen activity the crew is assembled and briefed on the basic materials needed and knot techniques for constructing a raft. Raft Building focuses on group dynamics, communication skills and leadership. We present the group with the challenge of building rafts out of limited resources. They must work together on all stages from carrying their materials to designing, building and finally paddling their rafts. When rafts are built, the group paddles their rafts around a set course on a woodland lake. The hands-on section of the workshop is over when all rafts are completely disassembled and materials are placed neatly back where they were before we started. Then we debrief the experience, highlighting positive teamwork, and setting goals for improvement.

Wake boarding, raft building and team building at its best and all just outside London.

Any level of catering can be provided. A typical BBQ menu is:

Minted Lamb Kebabs
Curry-marinated Chicken Drumsticks
Green Salad
Tomato Salad
Jacket Potatoes
French Bread & Butter
