check out what's hot in BICOL!!!

...WAKEBOARDING!!!......

The CamSur Water Sports Complex (or CWC) is a cable boarding facility. they do not use speed boats to pull you instead you are connected to a cable that�s moving around the man-made lake. The speed is fast enough to make your fancy moves and jumps.

For those who are not fond of these extreme sport, you can also dip in their cool blue swimming pool, or get a relaxing massage in one of their native huts. The facility is located in Pili, Camarines Sur.

The Camsur Watersports Complex, (CWC, as it is more popularly known) is just a 5-7 minute car ride from the Naga airport and is located within the Provincial Capitol Complex. You can take a tricycle or taxi to CWC; if you�re staying at one of its lodging facilities, airport transfers are free (call to pre-arrange).

The first thing that you�ll notice at CWC is the presence of foreigners, which always makes me wonder, how come they know about these places before we (Pinoys) do? Once you get past the slew of Germans, Brits, Australians, and Japanese, you realize (happily so) that there are also a lot of Bikolanos milling about the place and enjoying the facilities on the six hectare complex.

CABLE SKIING

Cable skiing is the main event at CWC. As its name implies, the skier is pulled by an overhead cable, and she has the option of being on a wakeboard, waterski, or kneeboard while hooked-up to the cable on the move. World champion wakeboarders and beginners (who usually start-off on the kneeboard before getting up on both feet) alike fall in line to have a go. The great part about it is the park�s jovial and non-competitive atmosphere, an appeal that�s likely been imparted by the equally laidback Luis Raymund (aka �L-Ray,� aka �Gov�) Villafuerte Jr., CWC�s head honcho and provincial Governor of Camarines Sur, one who�s hell-bent on promoting tourism to his province, which he feels is at par and sometimes even surpasses other better-known destinations within our Philippine archipelago.

CWC is the brainchild of Gov. L-Ray (himself a wakeboarder, and a darn good one, so we�ve heard), and if you talk to any wakeboarder on the premises, they have nothing but praise for the young politician, who has created a world-class facility that is both affordable, accessible, and more important, complies with safety standards to ensure that novices and experts alike enjoy their time at the park.

OTHER FACILITIES

>If the cable park isn�t your thing and you just want to lazily spend your days tanning, you can do just that as CWC also has a pool, clubhouse, restaurant, pro shop (where you can get wakeboards, life vests, helmets, board shorts, and crocs, to name a few items), and an area for beach volleyball.

>BMX riders can delight in the sand dunes that were built with their extreme needs in mind; coupled with the skate park and the already thriving cable park, CWC is set to be known in the world-stage as an Extreme sports haven.

WHERE TO STAY:

You have a choice of lodging at CWC. There�s the Mansion Suites, a hotel that�s popular with the wakeboarders and foreigners (P2,200-4,000 for 2-4 pax/room depending on size and room choice). If you don�t want to stay within the standard hotel then the cabanas may be more your thing (P2,800/night, good for 2 people); or perhaps the unconventional containers or 'trailers', where you can pick from one that houses two people, or a family-sized one with two bedrooms and a kitchenette that can accommodate four to five people (rates start at P2,800/night).

What�s yet to open are the Balinese Villas (P5,000/villa, good for 2 people), which is about a ten minute walk from the cable park, but is worth the mild exercise. When the villas are finished and are open to the public, you can look forward to an on-site spa, luxe pool, and of course, your own private home away from home. The great part about it is that all of the room rates come with breakfast, and you can avail of the cable park and the CWC facilities for free throughout the day.

MARKET:
Just 15-20 minutes away (by jeepney, tricycle or car ride) from CWC is the Naga town proper. Make sure you take a walk through the Naga palengke as you�re sure to find pili savories (P30-220), native bags (P50-450, depending on size), and lots of other souvenir items to bring back as pasalubong.

All in all, there was never a dull moment at CWC for me. Sure, service needs a bit of work, specially at the on-site restaurant, as it takes awhile for orders to come to the table. Also, there are times when they may run out of several items (like, say, pizza dough, key for making the much coveted Four Cheese Pizza, which is definitely a must-try). Whether you�re an extreme sports enthusiast, a nature-lover, a 'lazy reading by the pool' person, or simply am �I�ll stay in my Balinese villa all day and veg� kind of guy, there�s definitely something for you at CWC.

As the saying goes over there, �Come South, CamSur!�

:D
