Hot and humid. Everyday.
Here’s how to beat the summer heat while doing something fun and exciting.
Who says it’s no fun with strings attached?
Cable wakeboarding allows you to wakeboard without a boat. Instead, you are pulled by an overhead cable system. This is ideal for riders who have limited or no access to a boat. The cost is considerably cheaper and more hassle-free.
In the past, wakeboarding in Cebu could only be done by boat. The 1st wake camp was held in the open waters across the South Reclamation Project in 2011. But with the opening of cable parks, the sport became more accessible to locals. The first cable wake park to open was in Danasan Eco Adventure Park. They have many amenities to offer other than wakeboarding but their location is quite far from the city.
Enter the Cebu Wake Park
The Cebu Wake Park recently opened their doors to the public. Now everyone can experience the fun and thrill of wakeboarding. They feature a Sesitec System 2.0 – it’s a two tower system with a cable pulling you from one tower to the other. This system is best for beginners because it allows the cable operator to change the speed. Slower for beginners and faster for advance riders. Wakeboarding behind a boat is a bit more challenging. They both have different kinds of pull but you can do the same tricks on both.
On wednesdays they’ve got a summer treat for the ladies. Buy any two of the same riding passes and receive an additional riding pass of equal time free for a friend to try. More girl friends, more savings!
Here are the regular rates for weekends and weekdays.
This is the best part! The Cebu Wake Park can be found inside Papa Kit’s in Silot Bay, Liloan. It’s just a quick twenty five minute drive from the city. You can pass the new Cansaga Bay Bridge (heading towards Consolacion and Liloan). From there all you need to do is drive straight till you see a sign that says Papa Kit’s.
