Davao City soon to have a wakeboard park

I simply couldn’t contain my utter excitement when I found out about this yesterday – and via Facebook, no less. Apparently, Davao City will soon have a wakeboard park! Construction of the Davao Wakeboard Park is allegedly underway and it’s set to be completed on April 2009. The grand opening of this new Davao City tourist attraction is slated for May 2009. Just in time for the tail end of summer 2009! As a certified water sports aficionado, I simply cannot wait to visit this complex soon!

For the uninitiated, wakeboarding is a surface water sport wherein a person uses a wakeboard (this one’s smaller than a surfboard but a little bit bigger than a skateboard) over the surface of a body of water. This sport was reportedly developed via a combination of water skiing, surfing and snowboarding techniques.

Based on the vicinity map found on this page (which I also got from the DWP Facebook page), the Davao Wakeboard Park will be located somewhere near Tugbok and Mintal (which is roughly 20 minutes away from Ulas, Davao City and 10 minutes from Calinan)

So with the upcoming opening of the Davao Wakeboard Park, does this mean that it’ll give the Camarines Sur Watersports Complex a run for its money? If I’m not mistaken, the Camsur Watersports Complex is the first and largest complex of its kind in the country today but given the Mindanaoans’ penchant for water, sports, tourism (especially for Mindanao) and everything that aims to put those three together, the Davao wakeboarding complex may soon be the biggest thing to hit Philippine sports and tourism.

So Mindanaoan, are you as excited as I am?
