The second half of our Philippines trip was great. First we caught a plane up to Naga from Manila to go the CWC. The CWC is the cable park in Camsur that Gov L Ray owns. CWC is sick, they have built such a beautiful facility. We would get up early before the cable was open and get laps with no crowds. There are a lot of really fun rails, ramps, and a really fun box. At CWC we had great accommodations, each of us had our own cabanas. While we were in Camsur we decided to travel to Daiet, where there was this unreal spillway to shoot on. It had these huge wall rides with water flowing down that we all were hitting from different directions. Wats and I were hitting them from the bottom and wiping up, doing really fun turns on the wall. Danny and Ruck were hitting it from the top and riding the whole way to the bottom doing tail presses all the way down. The spill way was one of the most fun natural terrain things I have ever hit. Right before we left that spot I ollied off a 15-foot flowing waterfall.
All week we were fighting the weather but got a few more good days. One of the last days we were there Grubby was hitting this spillway waterfall and got a really sick pop shuvit off it.
Overall the Philippines was one of the best trips I have been on. Thanks a lot to L Ray, Ana and crew for showing us such a good time. They went above and beyond. Thanks
There will be some great video footage for the new Billabong team movie that came out of this trip.
