Who would have thought that it would be possible: Wakeskating at the top of the Banaue Rice Terraces! This fantastic Wakeboarding stunt was part of Red Bull’s series of equally fantastic stunts showcasing different action sports, but this stunt in the Philippines got mixed reactions from peeps.
Yup, some peeps gave their thumbs up and salute of approval for giving the famed Banaue Rice Terraces a new breathe of life. With Brian Grubb’s popular wakestaking vid,it placed the 8th Wonder of the World landmark in the midst of popular media. If you are not sure how, then the vid got almost a million YT views and it got the social media hype, right?
Some groups on the other hand are calling it booo! And hitting the dislike button (if there was such) because the stunt accordingly disturbed the nature and the landscape in Banaue. Oh well, you really can’t please everybody, right But hey, the vid shows that Grubb, who is a famously known wakestaking champion, received the blessings and a go signal from the local tribes.
