The World Wakeboard Association (WWA) along with Governor LRay Villafuerte Jr. and the Camsur Watersports Complex (CWC) have partnered to bring you the 2008 WWA Wake Park Worlds to be held July 2nd-6th in the beautiful province of Camarines Sur, Philippines. This event is open to all riders with 17 divisions for wakeboard and wakeskate and over $50,000 total in cash and prizes for the Pro Men and Women Wakeboard, Pro Wakeskate, Obstacles Only and Jr. Men’s divisions.
The competition will also include The CamSur Rider’s Cup, the first stop of the 2008 WWA Wakeboard World Series where the world’s top pro riders will be onsite battling it out for $20,000 in prize money on the newly built CWC boat lake. In addition to all the action on the cable and behind the boat, riders can also session the new winch park designed by rail builder Pat Panakos from the world famous Projects Camp in Florida. This contest will offer an additional $4,500 in total prize money and will be held in a Jam-style format where competitors can take their best hits on their wakeboard or wakeskates.
Worlds is projected to be one of the biggest international contests to date in which the best riders from all over the world will compete for world titles and cash prizes. With boat, cable, winch riding and some of the best rails in the world, there’s something for every rider to enjoy at this event, and if this is your first trip to the Philippines, Camarines Sur has much more to offer than just wake sports.
The Camsur Watersports Complex (CWC), as featured in the October issue of WakeBoarding Magazine, is a state-of-the-art action sports and recreational facility for visitors from around the world and also includes a skate park, bike/BMX track, two Flowrider wave machines, swimming pool, basketball court and game room all onsite.

Isarog and boat trips to the beach and private islands.
