Camsur Watersports Complex is back in business
Just in time for summer!
(SPOT.ph) Because of its location facing the Pacific Ocean, the Bicol Region in the eastern seaboard of the Philippines is often the first to experience the strongest typhoons that enter the country. Catanduanes, one of its island provinces, is not called "The Land of the Howling Winds" for nothing. But when Typhoon Nina hit the region in December 2016, it was a completely different story.
“We felt a stronger impact than we did when Typhoon Reming hit us in 2006,” Mayor Jaime Villanueva revealed through Inquirer, describing the typhoon as the strongest to strike them in 10 years. Houses were wrecked, electric posts were down, and electricity was out for months. This is true even for what is considered as the mecca and shangri-la of water sports parks in the Philippines—the CamSur Watersports Complex in Pili, Camarines Sur.
Videos and photographs show how devastated the water sports complex was after the super typhoon. Wood cabins were destroyed, as well as the state-of-the-art cable system of the quad pool for wakeboarding.
Less than two months after the incident, the water park destination is back in business with new lights perfect for night sessions. Three new rails, one of which is a Y-rail, are also being built in preparation for the summer crowd.
We're completely stoked just looking at it!
