Chapter I INTRODUCTION
“Sports is the toy department of human life.” This is a quote
from an American sports journalist, Howard Cosell. What he wanted tomean in his statement is that sports can be a source of enjoyment tohuman beings because of the different factors such as money, fame,health, body, hobby, self-esteem and relationships. According to
Maslow’s hierarchy of needs,
the most fundamental and basic fourlayers of the pyramid: esteem, love, security, and psychological needs,can also be met through sports. Way back in the Ancient Greece whenpeople learned to be purposive, sportive and active beings, sports hasshown not only the changes in the human body but also revealed theimprovements in the society. The rise of the society was the rise of architecture as well. It is the living evidence that sports has been a
great part of human beings’ life in the past and still continues in the
present.There are sports were people attempt to push the physicalboundaries. These are what you call extreme sports. These extremesports tend to take the adrenaline rush and excitement to the next level.
It began as early in the 1950’s when people continue to search for 
more high-risk sports. It evolved though time to make the new sportssafer but still performed at a greater level of difficulty.

wakeboarding. Their goal is to make wakeboarding, which is anexample of extreme sport, be known to the world. Russia, Singapore,Egypt, India, Qatar and Malaysia are few of the wakeboarding spotswhere the Wakeboarding World Cup was held. The World Cup seriesaim to bring the best water sport athletes to high-populated,international urban environments to bring more exposure to thesesports. In the Philippines, composing of 7, 107 islands surrounded bybodies of waters, it is said to be one of the perfect places where watersporting events can happen. Camsur Watersports Complex (CWC) is awatersports park designed for wakeboarding, water skating, andwaterskiing. Last October 2006, they have hosted the first PhilippineCable Wakeboard Nationals. The extreme watersports then becamepopular to the whole country of Philippines. Many wakeboard parkswere built like first cable park, Lago de Oro in Batangas, DecaWakeboarding Park in Davao, Deca Wakeboarding Park in Clark,Pampanga, some resorts in Boracay and Cebu has it too, and the latestis the Republic Wake Park in Nuvali, Laguna. A Philippine WakeSchool was also established to promote more the sport and to produceworld class wake boarders and wake skaters in the Philippines.1.1

they’ve seen that
surfing is one of the sports that urges in thecountry but unfortunately, they find it hard to market. Then thesport of cable wakeboarding was born on the surface of thePhilippine waters. Many cable parks arouse and they appealed tothe market. These cable parks that are mostly located in thesouthern provinces and cities became hot spots during thesummer. The sport became popular as well as the resorts and theplaces near to the wake parks benefited with it. But these parksare more operational only during summer because the othermonths of the year are rainy season.Another concern of the CWC is that there is the growth of the
sport but there isn’t any development
in the facilities needed andrequired by the CWWC World Rules in Cable Wakeboard &Wake skate. One facility needed is a training gym that would leta beginner to try the sport in a safer place and water before itcould proceed to the real wakeboard obstacle. It also serves aspractice gym to the professional wakeboarders. Wakeboarding isfun but it could also risk the lives and safety of the wakeboardriders therefore a medical clinic is a must to give first aidsolutions in every wakeboard park.1.2
