Some people consider wakeboarding as similar to surfing and they are correct. Before it was officially known as wakeboarding, the sport was earlier called skurfing or ski-boarding. In the Philippines, wakeboarding has come of age and is started to gain more and more followers from adventure seekers. It was introduced by a well-known celebrity. Among the more popular wakeboarding spots include Batangas and Camarines Sur.
In wakeboarding, a motorboat running at great speed pulls a person who is standing on a surfboard. As the speeding motorboat pulls them, the wakeboarder performs stunts. From its humble beginnings, wakeboarding has evolved into an exciting sport within its association and has become a part of the X Games.
