Promotion of tourism or exploitation? After seeing the video, some locals are criticizing the wakeskating stunt at the Banaue Rice Terraces, one of the 8th Wonder of the World and listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. The extreme performances was done by professional wakeskaters, American Brian Grubb and Germany's Dominik Preisner and sponsored by Red Bull.


As on the video, Red Bull assured that;
- "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."
