Camsur Watersports Complex - tips and guide

if you are planning to go to Camsur Watersports Complex (CWC), let this brief guide assist you. upon arriving at CWC, settle down your things first before you register for whatever activity you are planning to do. there’s an area with tables and chairs beside the water arena where you can settle down your things. visit the main lobby to check out the rates. best thing to do is to sign up for an hour of wakeboarding/kneeboarding. kneeboarding if its your first time and wakeboarding once you master the basic kneeboarding moves. as of this time, the one hour kneeboarding includes one hour use of the swimming pool. after you register, you will be given a head gear and choose your lifevest. different sizes are available and choose the one that’s fit. if you are going there as a group, gather the group for the orientation. one important tip here, do stretching before you set out. this will initialize your muscles.during the orientation, you will be asked to get your board. it usually takes five to ten minutes. make sure that you attentively listen to the instructions. ask if you are not sure or if some directions are unclear. after the orientation, you are now ready to set off. line up on the waiting area until your turn comes. just remember the directions. when it’s your turn comes, just relax. hold hard the pulling grip with your hands on both edge. when you fall, don’t panic. you’ll notice that your board will turn you upside down, just release yourself from the board then you’ll float. watch out for incoming boarders to avoid being hit. swim to the surface with your board. you can either walk your way back to the starting point or you can wait for the mini jeep to pick you up. the mini jeep roams within the arena to bring the boarders back to the starting point. rest if you feel exhausted after one round and get ready for your next round. if the line is quite long, it would be better to line up immediately since you’ll be able to relax yourself while you’re waiting for your turn. make sure to do stretching.one hour is good enough if it’s your first time. you’ll be able to make four to six rounds in an hour. if you want to do two hours, make an hour break before your next hour. you can either go swimming or simply rest and enjoy exhibitions from experienced wakeboarders. whole day is more than enough. in our case, we went to CWC around 3:00pm and stayed there until night time.
here’s a recommended itinerary:
3:00pm – 3:30pm – settle down our things and registered at the lobby.
3:30pm – 3:40pm – gear up (head gear, lifevest, choose board)
3:40pm – 3:50pm – kneeboarding orientation
3:50pm – 4:40pm – kneeboarding
4:40pm – 5:20pm – swimming or massage
5:20pm – 6:20pm – tour around the Camsur Watersports Complex (photo sessions)
6:20pm – 7:20pm – dinner and chat time
7:20pm – 8:00pm – wi-fi time
if you are into skating, you can go to the skatepark with all the ramps. if you do cycling, you can bring your bike and bike around the complex. but what will really complete the experience are the people joining you there.


so bring your friends.

atticus said...

Napaboaniya said...

Really does look like a great water recreation centre. Just curious, is the place kids friendly?

alicesg said...

We had a similar one called SKI 360 degrees but this sports complex looked bigger and had more facilities. Your information is very useful for people who like water sports. You must have an enjoyable time there.

Buti nalang nabasa ko ito bago ko i-try sa Saturday. Sana lang eh di maapektuhan ng bagyo ang aming lakad or else surfing ang mangyayari samen dun kapag maalon dun, hehehe ;)

dyosa said...

I will visit this Watersports complex soon! I told my friend I'll visit her. She's based in CamSur. (excuse ko yun para makapaglaboy.) Hehe.

I love the photos, btw.

I'll be one of the cheerer.The speed surly would disorient me.

Those photos are really nice.I hear about the rave of wakeboarding there.the facilities of this complex seems one of the best.

Hope, it's affordable.

i think having a wifi is a major consideration when making a choice. anyway i like the sound of that massage.

The Holleys said...

I will just watch, Dong! I can't imagine hitting in the water at high speed. Nice place though. I love the photos.

bw said...

Selerines said...

All are really superb.. But one doubt, for what that crane used for??

Pietro said...

Very interesting photographs. The Sport Complex must be important and efficient. You had a good time there, hadn't you?

luna miranda said...

You're a very considerate person to post such intricate guide. I'm sure many interested wake-boarders will find your tips valuable.

>luke, wi-fi time is indeed a special time to check blogs.

>hi atticus, i still recommend that you try it. hehehe...

>redlan, lapit na ang bacolod series. tinatapos ko lang ang mga naiwang naga posts. enjoy nga dito lapit na ako dyan. maraming salamat sa reservation.

>beero, hahaha... tagal naman ng 2015. baka meron na dyan sa cebu by that time.

>hi napaboaniya, yes the place is kids friendly. although there are no playgrounds, but the place is huge for the kids to play around plus a swimming pool.

>hi alicesg, we did enjoy there. soon there will be more activities in this area as construction is continuous. im sure you also enjoyed watersports in your area.

>kegler, hahaha... oo nga. medyo daanan talaga ng bagyo ang bicol. kung ulan lang okay pa rin mag wakeboard. pero pag bagyo medyo mahirap yata.

>hi dyosa, hahaha... galing mo palang magset up. siguradong mag eenjoy ka doon.

>lawstude, hahaha... hindi pwede. dapat mag kneeboard ka talaga. sayang pagpunta mo dun.

ok naman dito. yung unang dalawang araw ganda ng panahon pero kahapon nagsimula ng umulan. hirap mamasyal pag umuulan.

lapit na rin ang bacolod post ko.

>dazedblu, oo try mo to. astig talaga!

>hi maya, the facilities are really good. system is stable and everyone enjoys each experience.

it's very affordable. today it's just P265/hour. isnt that cheap for such an experience? what makes it expensive is that you need to travel a long way. you can also take a plane to naga.

>borneo falcon, thanks!

>hi carver, thanks!

>hi aline, that's their cottages for eating. the place is well maintained.

>hi vivek, thanks a lot! i wonder where you found my blog. just keep in touch. im adding you in my blogroll.

>photocache, wi-fi nowadays is already essential. a lot of place in naga already offers free wi-fi connection.

>hi the holleys, that rarely happens when you do kneeboarding. i still recommend you to try it.

>hi bw, thanks!

>selerines, thanks. cranes are used to hold the cable driven pull.

>pietro, i definitely enjoyed my experience there. and it's worth doing it again and again.

>hi luna, yes. a lot of place now offers wi-fi. this is great news for bloggers. hehehe... i think you need to try water sports.

>jasper, hahaha... i know you'll need 3hours.

>hi share, i hope it does help. thanks. i really hope that in one way this will help people enjoy kneeboarding.

>hi bid yan, ganda talaga doon.
