Mainly due to the fact that it has become easier to travel, marketing of places and location was made easier with the help of online guides and many people have come out of their own comfort zones to try new things.

Wakeboarding

Wakeboarding basically is a surface water sport that involves riding a board over a water surface, pretty much like surfing/surfboarding. The board used for wakeboarding, called a wakeboard is rectangular in shape and a little smaller than your average surfboards but a bit bigger than skateboards.

All of these sports have one common feature, they all require boards to play the sport. The idea of wakeboarding came from the combination of skiing, snowboarding, and surfing as described in Wikipedia.

Motorboats Vs Cable Wake Parks

The first wakeboard sport was played by getting towed by a speedboat and dragged across the open sea. One cable is attached at the back of the motorboat while the other end was being clutched by the person doing the wakeboarding.

Later on, investors and businessmen invested money to create man-made water parks especially designed for wakeboarding.

Usually, cable parks have circular courses with cables around it and ropes moving in a circular motion. These ropes are being held by wakeboarders to skim through the course. The automatic cables are the substitute for motorboats to pull the players to gain speed and momentum.

Wake Parks

These cable parks boast speed comparable to a moving boat in the water. It is cheaper compared to renting boats which is why it is preferred by many. It is also the reason for the number of Philippines wake parks built.

Being pulled by motorboats in the open sea can give you a refreshing feeling compared to doing it in a wake park. Being outside in the natural body of water is much more thrilling.

While the good thing about wake parks is its pocket-friendly cost. You will be able to play much longer paying on a wake park rather than renting a boat and be pulled in the open sea.

Types of Boards

Wakeboards comes in different sizes that you can choose depending on your height and weight. It varies because one needs to comfortably float in the water to be able to wakeboard properly. I got a general size guide chart from captaindingleys site which you can use to select the right board for you.

   Rider Weight (lbs)             Wakeboard Length (cm)

90 - 150                                 130 - 134

       200 - 275+                           144 or Greater

Once you have found the right board for you, you can also look for wakeboard gears which are also needed in order to play wakeboarding properly and safely. This will include vests, helmets, and a good board shorts.

Wakeboarding gears will cost money. Money that you can use for other things, so newbies will definitely think twice before purchasing brand new gears. First timers will not be able to test it without proper gears. It is a reason why they lend all users with gears to get more people to wakeboarding.

We assure you that you will not regret trying it. The beginner course is perfect for everyone, and you will get an adrenaline just from that. Still, nothing compares to the adrenaline you can get from trying the professional course. It is really hard as you can see from the number of attempts I did.

I and my friends have played the sport a couple of times already. As you can see on the photos they have already invested money for their own boards and gears. I was able to play it a couple of times but have stopped due to transferring abroad.

A better choice than Tagaytay

It is still a good way to spend a short summer vacation or place to hang out during the weekends as Tagaytay will be overcrowded with people at the same time. If ever you get bored with the traffic, take a detour and head straight instead to Republic Wake Park.

It is an experience worth having.
