I wrote on this blog last April 2009 about Camsur Watersports Complex (CWC) in Naga,Camarines Sur earning a reputation for being a playground for water sports enthusiast! And you don't have to be a pro to enjoy wakeboarding in a world-class fashion with free lessons from resident instructors using basic equipment.
Yesterday, we got to CWC at quarter to 5pm with a determination to try wakeboarding. We paid for a night rate of P215 per hour (which comes with the wakeboard,helmet,vest, instructor and 15 minutes trial.There is a P500 deposit per person which is refundable).Morning rate is only P165 an hour with the same inclusions.
Well as I have written,you don't need to be a pro to try this water adventure - called wakeboarding coz I was able to try it and had fun with it! But of course, I was also very apprehensive at first. With my petite size and a weak heart,this very strenuous water sport seems not fitted for me. Good thing, CWC has "wakeboarding for beginners". One will really have to start out first on a kneeboard!Since there is a lower center of gravity in Kneeboarding, beginners can easily learn the basics of cable wakeboarding.
Wow! I finally tested the waters so to speak - kneeboarding with my friend Tes and my brother Mike while my Papa, Mama and Ate Margo cheered, posed for pics and watched us laid flat on the water or made a complete round at the lake.
Here's a collage of kneeboarding stint at CWC.
Kneeboarding was such a great experience that although my body still aches until now, the experience is compensating for it all!
