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.
