In a country that’s made up of 7,641 islands, there’s never a day without fun. Whether you’re exploring a vibrant city, enjoying a tasty local feast, or indulging in island life, the Philippines sure knows how to keep its visitors (both local and foreign) entertained.
One of the most popular must-try pastimes while in the Philippines are the water sports. Beachfront hotels and resorts offer a variety of these, and kneeboarding is one of the many exciting activities both active and laid-back travelers will enjoy.
Being closer to the water makes kneeboarding easier and more fun compared to other boat-towed activities like water skiing and wakeboarding. Kneel down on a board (with or without fins) which will be velcro strapped to the thighs in order to secure themselves, while the person holds onto a tow-rope attached to a motorboat. It is important to maintain proper body position - rock your body weight onto your heels as you pull the handle to your body until you’re at a comfortable position. Always remember to listen to your instructor and don’t forget proper communication through signals. You can ask the motorboat driver to start at slow speed for practice.
