For the 5th episode of Beyond Boarders, we visited our friends in Bataan and Pradera Verde Wake Park in Lubao Pampanga. The tightly knitted surf and wakeboard community exemplifies a unique camaraderie among board riders in part of Luzon. We met Aris Quicho back in 2011 when we visited Bataan for the a downhill longboard session in Mt. Samat. We also had a chat with world class wakeboard athlete Carlo “C-lo” Dela Torre. We met C-lo when he still works for a multi brand store during early months of My Life on Board.
