WakeBoarding at CWC
One of the highlights of going to CWC is the wakeboarding.. It is almost the same as surfing or snow boarding, but here, you are being pulled by a cable.. And unlike these activities, the environment here is controlled so you get perfect conditions all the time.
The wakeboarding facility here is said to be #1 in the world. and the cheapest also as compared to other countries.

Buy Some Native Delicacies
What do you think is the special delicacy in Pili?? Isn't it obvious? Of course it's the Pili Nut. So don't miss buying from the local souvenier shop. They have haney glazed pilis which sell from P35.00 for the small pack to a P100.00 for the large pack. They have pili polvoron, pili cakes, pili tarts, and all kinds of sweets with pili nuts in them. :)
Enjoy a view of Mt. Isarog
Mt. Isarog is an inactive volcano located at the heart of Camarines Sur. It is one of the highest forested peaks at Southern Luzon. From within the complex, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the mountain while lounging in one of the cabanas.
There is also a swimming pool inside the camsur complex. if you have paid for the wakeboarding fee, then the swimming is for free, otherwise you have to pay P100.00 per head. Make sure you wear proper swimming attire for they are strict with this.
For Beginners: Knee Boarding
For beginners like us, it is best advised to try knee boarding first. This will give you a feel on the speed, the maneuvers and how capable you are of holding on to the handle bar. I tell you, it may look easy but once you are in there, it's hard! I got blisters all over my hand form holding on to the handle bar.. But once you get used to it, the adrenalin rush is just too addicting that you want to try again and again :)
What you should remember: always keep you head low at the starting point. Once you hit the water, you can straighten yourself up. Make sure you pass by the middle of the bouys located at the corners of the lake, this is to avoid changing the tension of the rope pulling you. And when things get out of control.. just let go to avoid accidents :)
Play some hoops
There is a basketball court inside the camsur complex where you can enjoy shooting some hoops with friends. No extra charge for this.
Have a masssage
After all the day's activity.. you can enjoy a good massage at one of the casitas nearby..
Massage rate: P250.00 per hour
