Wakestock

Hi everyone,

As always, Wakestock was such a sick event with a brilliant atmosphere and about 20,000 people there. The first couple of days it was lashing rain and they had flood warnings all over Wales and we were lucky to get the car moving in the muck. Sian Hurst rode really well on Friday but unfortunately didn’t make Finals. Then the sun shone on Saturday for the Pro Men Semi Finals and Finals. I was delighted to qualify first in the semi finals despite snapping my board two thirds of the way through! In Finals I fell on a Tootsie roll and my run went dowhill from there but I ended up coming fifth which has now motivated me to really go for it for the rest of the season. Big congrats to the three Dans! Dan Nott who took 1st place which is brilliant as for the past few years it has been foreign riders that have taken the top spot. The second and third spots went to Orlando riders Danny Thollander and Daniel Powers. Well done to all. It was Amber Wing who won the Ladies’ Pro Finals.

Yesterday we all headed to Glasfryn Wake Park to hit the Sesitec and had a blast hitting the obstacles there. Just got back to Dublin now and I head back out to Xtreme Gene at 7am tomorrow where I can’t wait to get some serious water time in. Details

Hi guys,

I still can’t believe that I actually came first at Wakestock! This past few days have been absolutely unbelievable! The Irish Wakeboard crew and I headed out to Wales for Wakestock.

Unusually for Wakestock the sun was shining throughout most of the weekend and the water was not horrifically choppy.

In the Women’s it was close for 2nd, 3rd and 4th but there was no doubt in anybody’s mind that Argentinian Robbie Rendo would to take the top spot. Then in 2nd was Charlotte Bryant, swiftly followed by Irish team member Sian Hurst who rode really well coming back from a fall and killing it with loads of solid inverts. Details
