Video of top-level wakeskater Brian Grubb, who, sponsored by Red Bull, made the long trip up the Mountain Province to skim the usually placid waters of Banaue's world-famous paddies.
Brian Grubb on wakeskating in Banaue:
"Since I first saw the drawing of these huge rice terraces on the back of the 1000-peso bill, the idea of having a session there wouldn’t let me go. It was only a drawing but it looked like a perfect winch spot and probably a super scenic location. And it was!"
The famous rice terraces of Banaue are considered to be the 'Eighth Wonder of the World' and were the perfect playground for a unique wakeskate session.
Fellow wakeskater Dominik Preisner of Germany tagged along. Their mission: An epic winch session at Banaue’s world famous rice terraces.
