Wakeboarding is a popular sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water. Though it is normally done by the beach, any body of water is enough to cater to this very popular and extreme sport.
In the Philippines, wakeboarding had become a popular sport for many Filipinos. However, is usually done in popular beaches across the Philippines, such as in Lago De Oro in Batangas, in Camsur Watersports Complex or CWC, as well as in Siargao.
However, other than in these far places, there is also a place within reach from Metro Manila that can also offer the perfect park for wakeboarding. And this is within the community.
Nuvalis Extreme Sports
Nuvali is a community developed by one of the largest and most successful real estate development corporations in the Philippines, Ayala Land Corporation. It is located in the cities of Sta. Rosa, Calamba and the Municipality of Cabuyao in Laguna, part of the growth corridor of the Calabarzon Region.
Popularly known as an eco-city, Ayala Land aims to make Nuvali as the first and the largest business central found in the southern part of Luzon. However, there are also other goals in which Nuvali is aiming for, such as the fact that Nuvali is also known today as a popular venue for extreme and outdoor sporting experiences.
Nuvali, though more popularly known as an eco-city, is also known for its collection of recreational and resort facilities. But other than just the kinds of resort facilities found in other communities such as swimming pools, gyms, sports complexes, parks, and playgrounds, Nuvali is also known for its collection of popular outdoor extreme sports including the popular wakeboarding Philippines.
Recently, Nuvali held a wakeboarding competition in which many wakeboarders and wakeboarding fans had attended, both local and foreign. It was such as success that Nuvali quickly became a popular venue for wakeboarders living within Metro Manila.
Though not found in the beach, its wakeboarding park can provide the adequate space for wakeboarders to practice and hone their skills in wakeboarding, as well as held different events.
But as a popular venue for extreme sports, Nuvali does not only boast for their wakeboarding park, but also for their mountain biking trails, beach volleyball, Frisbee, as well as other popular outdoor sports which are normally rare within Metro Manila.
