On Whirlpools and Wakeboarding in Liloan.

Have you tried wakeboarding in Liloan?

Do you know where Liloan is? What whirlpools are we talking about here and why should one go to Liloan for wakeboarding? Let’s talk about these things one by one.

What exactly is wakeboarding?

Wakeboarding is a relatively new water sport here in Cebu where the combinations of water skiing, surfing and snowboarding techniques are employed. Usually towed by a motorboat or a machine, the riders glide over a surface of water using a wakeboard. That’s the technical description of the term but if you will ask any passionate shredder what wakeboarding is, they will simply tell you that it is a way of life.

So, what is this whirlpool that we are talking about? The whirlpools my friends, are formed at the mouth of the majestic water heaven called Silot Bay right in the heart of Liloan. A body of water that is shrouded with mysterious folklores about love and death.

Liloan, a coastal municipality in the northern part of Cebu was called as such because of the whirlpools or “lilo” created by the Silot Bay’s water movements.

But what’s the connection between Wakeboarding and Liloan?

Well, Silot Bay in Liloan is home to the world class wakeboarding facility known as Cebu Wake Park. This is where a mean Sesitec System 2.0 wakeboarding machine meets the grandeur of nature. The best wakeboarding facility there is in the area.

The only place in Cebu where your backdrop as you soar and fly above the waters is one of Cebu’s most enchanting sceneries. Imagine shredding where Mangroves surround you, where Herons and Egrets fly overhead and the entire bay area being embraced by blue skies which turns into fiery orange at dusk. A one with nature adrenaline kind of rush that you won’t get to experience other than at Cebu Wake

So, going back to the question. Have you tried wakeboarding in Liloan?
