What started out as an attempt to break the monotony on how I spend my weekends has turned into somesort of a stress reliever for me. I spend 1-4 hours on the man made lakes of Pradera in Lubao, Pampanga or in Nuvali, Santa Rosa. I have come to love this sport. The sport itself is unforgiving, it’s not easy at the onset, I appreciated the challenge it brings. Inspite of that, I loved the welcoming atmosphere more importantly what the professionals will tell you when it’s your turn or when you end up with a face plant. I am not what is considered a professional, but I am somewhat in between. Week on week, I look forward to spending time on the lake.
Don’t get me wrong I am still a novice player until now. But hell I love this sport!

This was taken in Pradera in Pampanga
Turning the corner is the hardest part in the big lake, the tension all of a sudden lightens and you need to be able to pull the string and maintain your balance. because in a split second, the tension is back and it will pull you real fast! This is the part I love the most!
This is me immediately after the turn!

It has been over 3 years now that I have been playing in the wake parks of Luzon. I have been to Nuvali, Clark, Pampanga and Batangas.

It is a great weekend day-trip get away for those who want to do something different on a your rest days.

TIPS:

Don’t go on holidays

Go really early most parks open as early as 8am.

Pay for at least a 4 hour ticket so you can enjoy the facilities and really learn.

It will take time before one actually gets used to this sport, but it certainly gives you a sense of fulfillment once you get a hang of it.
