Wakeboarding at Camsur Watersports Complex

This is what i did during my vacation in the Philippines.Wakeboarding at Camsur watersports complex.

The Camsur Watersports Comlex is the first world-class watersports complex in the Philippines and in Asia. CWC aims to bring cable skiing to a whole new level and attract watersports enthusiasts from all over the world with its top of the line facilities and relaxing environment. This six (6)-hectare complex, with its 6-point cable ski system, is sure to draw guests, riders and spectators by the thousands. Because of good weather conditions, cable skiing in the park can be done all year round.

The CAMSUR WATERSPORTS COMPLEX is located within the Provincial Capitol Complex, Cadlan, Pili, Camarines Sur. The province of Camarines Sur, situated in southeastern part of Luzon is found in the Philippines, Southeast Asia.

Cable skiing is simply water-skiing where the skier is pulled by an overhead cable suspended 8-12 meters above water surface by specifically designed pylons. The cables run counter clockwise around the lake. It is powered by a variable speed electric motor which can maintain speeds between 20 - 65 km/h.

Wakeboarding was created from a combination of water skiing, snow boarding and surfing techniques. Instead of using skis, the rider rides a single board with stationary non-release bindings for each foot, standing sideways. Wakeboarding, besides being one of the world’s fastest growing sports and is gradually being recognized globally, has become a lifestyle for others.

Since this is my first time to do it a short explanation of the basic and safety of wakeboarding .Im ready to be drowned lol.

For a neophyte like me in this sport this is the first step kneeboarding and for two days this is the only lesson i learned and i didnt passed to be on the next level until my body gave up due to body pain to the point that i can no longer remove and put my shirt on by myself thanks to the help of my brothers and to salonpass lol and not to forget to the bottomless water i drunk from the lake but i really enjoyed that sport and i will do it again after all its very near a three hour drive away from our house in Bicol.

Kneeboarding is an aquatic sport where the participant is towed on a buoyant, convex, and hydrodynamically-shaped board at a planing speed behind a motorboat or cable. In the usual configuration of a towsport kdeck with an adjustable strap. As in wakeboarding or water skiing, the rider hangs ont neeboard, the rider sits on his heels on the board, and secures himself to the an easier learning curve, and not requiring as much effort to have fun. o a tow-rope. The forte of kneeboarding vis-à-vis other towsports seems to be

Sounds exciting pero scared ako e. Una dahil d ako marunong lumangoy. I'll mention it to my diving friends. Magugustuhan nila ang wakeboarding I'm sure.

This is truly awesome! Very challenging and exciting, it is quite hard to balance or stay afloat while being pulled but once you get it, it’s like no other water sport can be compared to it.
