Boardsports is currently one of the most popular outdoor action sports in the country. Most Filipino enthusiasts have even competed internationally and won in this field. And with the advent of almost everything eco-friendly, sporting activities are also now known to be effective means to promote ecosport-tourism in different localities.

It was an action-packed weekend in Subic as extreme sports enthusiasts gathered for the skateboarding competition and rock concert with Salamin. Since day 1, My Life on Board has kept everyone busy with the different activities they have lined up, such as the highest ollie challenge, longboarding freestyle and skate jam, Aerial7 skate jam challenge, and Aerial7 best skate run challenge open.

…and beyond!

 

My Life on Board is the brainchild of husband and wife tandem Mike and Pam Eijansantos. I’ve heard their story behind their website and believe me, they are a living testimony to God’s promise that He will bless those who believe in Him. Passion and faith in God can really lead to wonders. No wonder they have attracted extreme sports enthusiasts not just from Manila and the nearby towns, but also people from as far as Cebu and Davao! Talk about devotion!
