Wakeskating – The Eighth Wonder of the World
Though the seven wonders of the antiquated world are generally accepted by all of mankind, the unofficial eighth wonder is a very disputable subject where many people around the world claim something different and typically local. One of which lays in the glorious mountains of Ifugao in the Philippines – the Banaue Rice Terraces. These 2,000-year-old waterways are located 5,000 ft. above sea level, stretch across 6,000 square miles of mountainside, and are commonly thought to have been built by hand or with very basic hand tools.
Always in search of a unique location to splash around, Red Bull “wakeskaters” Brian Grubb and Dominik Preisner traveled to the Philippines for a grind session at one of the most beautiful creations of man in both the ancient and modern world. The team would like to assure its viewers that the plants, wildlife and local inhabitants were not harmed or disturbed during the filming of this project.
