Sunday, 29th July & 12th Aug, 2012 ~ When a former colleague offered me a chance to try wakeboarding for free, I jumped at it. Had not done this sport before & to date, still a noob, having done it only on 2 occasions. Early Sunday morning, we boarded the boat at Marina Country Club located at Ponggol.
WakeBoarding Buddies - Me, Mary & Stella
I love going out to sea...
2 Cute? =P
We travelled to a sheltered stretch of water just off Seletar Island. On the way, we passed by a kelong, which is sort of a surprise. I though they don't exist in Singapore anymore.
Am I ready to wakeboard? You bet I am! =P
We let Stella takes the first turn.
Me Watching Stella
My guy had told me that I wouldn't have much problem with wakeboarding as I'm quite a sporty girl. Well, I did manage to get up & stay up on my first attempt, but hanging on for long is another thing. Little Hamster is weak in arm strength!
WakeBoarding Hamster! =P
Noob WakeBoarder =P
Managed to hang on longer on the second occasion, but when encountering rough water or another boat passing by, this is what will happen to nooby me...
Watch the videos of my wakeboarding noob actions. =P

How's My WakeBoarding Skill? =P
Actually, the people in the group whom I am with, are all new to this sport. All had just taken this up recently & still learning. Among us girls on the boat, Mary is the best at this sport.

Stella's husband, Rainven, is a new enthusiast of wakeboarding.
And we were clowning around while Stella was filming her husband's wakeboarding actions.
