The Kuerdas band major, Jay Son, was the one who inspired me to play the guitar.

Onyok and his guitar

I remember back in my freshman years in college, whenever he comes to visit us in our boarding house which actually became our place for hang out, he brings with him a guitar. A lot of our cousins live in the same compound including myself and my older brother. We would sing songs together and have fun mostly after dinner. And in between those singing and chatting sessions, he would patiently teach me the basics of playing the guitar. He¬†doesn’t own a guitar at that time. It was just a simple guitar which, as far as I can remember, was borrowed from a good friend of his. Well, we were only students back then. Our parents couldn’t afford to buy us everything that we desire. :)

I realized this is the only picture of us together. You will have to look for Jay Son though!!! LOL!!!

Anyway, whenever I was able to learn to play a song with the guitar, he’d always compliment me and tell me I’m a “fast learner”. I was all the more motivated to learn to play and sing together with them during our hang out sessions at the boarding house.

He pretty much taught me the basics of music and that I should sing from the heart. He was actually my music instructor, my mentor. In fact, he was my biggest influence for my LOVE of MUSIC!

I miss you, Kuya Jay Son!!!

What Is A Wakeboard Storage For?

Posted by: | Comments (23)

My younger brother is the lead vocals with his music Band, Kuerdas and he has always been a big sports enthusiast. He is unbelievably such a sucker for all kinds of sports such as skim boarding, paragliding, basketball, and lots more.

Getting ready for the fly of his life

All set for paragliding! ;-)

Take off!

Now I am nervous!

Geez! Now it’s all clouds!

Up, up and away!

I need to go down and puke! Pleaseeee!

Success! The little guy with the pilot ;-)

Somehow, it is quite hard to believe that he is such because of his diminutive size and being thin, all of which goes against what one would expect of a sports enthusiast. Besides, I am so used to seeing him only when he sings on stage for Kuerdas gigs. :-)

Perhaps one of the explanations for wakeboarding and snowboarding that he would so love to do but has not had the opportunity of doing is obviously due to our tropical climate here. Our climate here does not offer him to engage in that kind of sports. If he is given the chance, I know he would not allow that opportunity to pass without indulging in those types of action sports.

For those who might not be aware what wakeboarding is, it is a water sport and it is like skiing on water but the person uses a board to skim over water while being pulled by a powerful speed boat. Snowboarding is over snow instead of water.

My brother finds both these sports very interesting because it is another challenging way though different from skim boarding. He owns a skim board. He saved every dime from his regular gigs to be able to purchase one. But for now, I believe his ultimate wish is to own a wakeboard and for sure, he is going to need a wakeboard storage for that.

For those who are already into wakeboarding and snowboarding, ultimately they need larger space to store their equipment and gears. In my brother’s case, the storage room will be an alternative solution but he needs to clean it up and dispose of unneeded items to make room for his sports equipment.

However, knowing my brother, I am sure he’d find a way to create space for a dedicated wakeboard rack. These wakeboard racks are just fantastic. It will make room for all the equipment to be stored and maintained for prolonged use. As early as now, I am sure my brother already found his way for the best solution to protect his sports equipment and gears and for easy access whenever he needs one for his indulgence in outdoor fun and excitement.
