JB ONeill and Carro Djupsjö both came to the Queen City of the South as part of their Southeast Asian Tour to coach all the Cebuano wakeboard enthusiats who attended the Cebu Wake Camp held at Cebu Wake Park last Nov 7-10.
Cebuanos gathered and witness America’s, JB ONeill and Sweden’s Carro Djupsjö, who recently won the E&A Wakeboard & Wakeskate Championships 2014 just this October, showing their skills and riding with our very own local talents, Humanoid Wake South Asia rider, Skrapi Koko and Obrien Wake philippines wakeboy wonder Raph Trinidad who had been touring along side JB from Singapore to Indonesia. Our lucky guests had a chance to be taught by these pro-riders their best practices and shared their tips and tricks when it came to wakeboarding.
Slowly but surely Cebu is getting on the map as a place to visit for wakeboarders and wakeskaters all over the globe and its high time that we get our very own full size cable park. Cebu Wake Park being the nearest wake cable park in the Cebu city vicinity, conveniently located inside Papa Kit’s in Liloan, and just 30 minutes away from downtown, is very accessible and has a lot of potential. Public transportation is easy and it is only 13.3 km from Mactan Airport via Cebu – North Coastal Rd.
Aside from the Cebu Wake Camp, we recently hosted Ride for a Cause, a charity drive to reached out to less fortunate kids from the Bylling foundation and introduce wakeboarding to those street children. In the future were hoping to host more events similar to these, and possibly even hold competitions both locally and regionally to encourage everyone to try out this amazing sport.
We are all ecstatic to find out who’s going to be our next international visitor! Stay tuned to find out the latest updates.
