Let us present you to the one and only Brian Grubb. He’s probably the most influencal pioneer of wakeskating, a discipline that combines skateboarding and water. This big guy over here is already named Wakeskater of the Year. One of his goals is to see his sport grow bigger than wakeboarding.
“It’s a lot more accessible, a lot more like skateboarding, and it grows so much every year, it’s insane,” Brian says.
He already did some crazy parcours, but the Banaue Rice Terraces in the Philippines, may be the most unexpectedly perfect wakeskate playpark. The rices terraces are over 2,000 years old, and still a source of food and income to the local population, as well as being a national icon.
“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 get out my head,” Grubb said. “It was only a drawing, but it looked like a perfect winch spot and probably a super scenic location. And it was!”
