One of the best things about being a Red Bull premier athlete must be the opportunities to go and explore the planet for unique riding terrain for shoots. Just take a look at this video with Pro Wakeskater, Brian Grubb. He checked out a great rice terrace on a Philippine Bank Note, found out it was based on a real picture, then tracked down the location (One of the 9 Wonders of the World) and ended up riding it.
Respect for the environment was a priority from the beginning of this project! The team has assured that the plants and wildlife have neither been damaged nor disturbed at any time during the project. All agreements have been made together with the locals and under respect of their traditions and culture.
Professional wakeskaters Brian Grubb (USA) and Dominik Preisner (GER) travelled to the Philippines to have an epic winch session at one of the most beautiful spots in the world. The famous rice terraces of Banaue are considered to be the Eighth Wonder of the World and were surely the perfect playground for an unique wakeskate session!
With the Typhoon causing major destruction in the Philippines right now, please do go and support a good cause for drinking water for the areas hardest hit – http://www.wavesforwater.org/project/typhoon-hiayan
