After 33 hours of travel, I found myself at wakeboarding’s next level of destination spots. Camsur Wakeboard Complex, CWC, is about an hour flight from Manila and has all that wakeboarding has to offer: a boat riding lake with an end designed specifically for driving double ups, a cable park with over 10 sliders/kickers, and a winch park.
The winch park is something like you have never seen before. A new cable type system was designed to pull a rider down a course, turn a 180 at the end and go back through the riding area. You can go non-stop, but you get pretty tired after a while. Pat Panakos has been the one to head up all the designs for the winch park and it shows. There are pools that drop down into other pools, ones that step up into other pools, step sets to jump down, and even a double stair set that is pretty big.
Accommodations were pretty nice and super cheap — less than 20 bucks a night. Food can be around 15 bucks for the day and you can get a massage for about 7 bucks after a long day of riding. Lyman, Aaron Rathy, Keith Lidberg and I are the riders that went there to film for Ronnie and Dave’s new film called Global Warning. Spencer Smith and Ryan Taylor were the photogs that came along to capture the good times, so keep your eyes peeled for the new mags to come out with some shots this winter.
The winch park is under construction which is why it looks all muddy and unfinished. They have done all this work in just a few months.
