I haven't tried it yet for myself. I was supposed to go with my friends a couple of weeks ago when I went home to Bicol but alas! I had to attend to some personal matters so I wasn't able to go. A lot of people have been raving about this sport and since CamSur Water Sports Complex is less than 2 hours drive from my place we really wanted to try it out and hopefully we could do that soon.

My two bestfriends are really into it and they keep wanting to drag me along with them. So what makes them so hooked on it? Well, aside from seeing local celebrities and hunky foreigners, they said it's a great sports which presents good physical challenges.

Wakeboarding was developed from a combination of water skiing, snow boarding and surfing techniques. Riders on specially des
igned boards are tugged behind a boat, while trying to maintain balance, navigate, do stunts on obstacles and ramps and get airborne by using the boat's wake.

The tricks performed by wakeboarders are simply amazing but it requires concentration, technical skills. Lol! I t
hink being able to stand up on the board is a feat in itself! Wake Instruction Website - Learn Wake , Wakeboarder.com, WakeBoardReport, WakeWorld, and World Wakeboard Association are great resources for wakeboarding newbies and enthusiasts.

That looks interesting. I'm kinda' afraid to try it out though, not because of the water (I love any form of water which is clean) but because I can't seem to balance myself on any kind of board.
