“The adrenaline and stress of an adventure are better than a thousand peaceful days” – Paulo Coelho

Wakeboarding is a water sport wherein you ride on a shortboard with foot bindings on it and it is usually done by a rider being towed by a motorboat to glide through the water, but in Quirino Watersports Complex, you can have the same Wakeboarding experience but with a cable system instead of a motorboat pulling you, making it relatively safer and cheaper too! But don’t get me wrong though, it’s still an adrenaline-inducing experience once you get on that wakeboard.
