For those that were there, is this the direction exhibitions should go? Was this a good event in your mind?

It sucked in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, I had fun but, they kept prolonging it and I was right up front and half the people around me didn't even realize that the first jump had taken place. And, you shouldn't try to cram an event that you know is going to draw a huge crowd into a little ally way like wall street plaza.

Beers and wakeboarding - great.

You could walk right or left to grab a beer - hang out with a crowd of Pro-riders standing next to you. All the while either watching a video of a new TV wakeboard show, listen to Dan-O talk it up, rock out to multi-grammy award winning dj tearing it up with KILLER beats that everyone around you were dancing too, or witness a record go down in Winch- wakeboarding.

I cant complain; drinks with Shane, laughs with Melissa, and stories with Andrew all while I waited.

I have been to these exhibitions in the past and I have to say that this one is on the bottom of the list, like Mike has stated above, they really just prolonged the whole thing and then to only have one person hit it just a few times was really disappointing.Last year was a good one for sure. There were multiple riders hitting a rail and kicker and there was no real format just the guys hitting the kicker entertaining the crowd. I should clarify also that I am not complaining at all...it's always fun, but just my .02

Congrats to Kyle Alberts on making the attempts. It was a steep kicker with little time to prepare for takeoff and he killed it.

This was one of the funnest (not a word, but should be) land events I've ever been to even with only about 20 minutes of actual wakeboarding!!

The area they hold it in is perfect. It's a block of bars downtown with an alley at the end, so it can accommodate a ton of people and there is plenty to do even without the wakeboarding event. You only have to show ID to get into the block, so you are free to wander outside and from bar to bar with drinks in hand if you so desire. Plus, they only check ID one time. Unfortunately, that was one time too many for Kaesen as he lost his fake ID only two weeks before his 21st birthday!

I said this last year and I'll say it again, the combination of a DJ (this year it was Grammy-winning Rockwilder) and an incredible drummer just mercilessly pounding on the skins makes for the coolest music I've ever heard!

The place was stacked with pro riders, many of whom were up on the stage gettin' jiggy the entire night. I know that we've got some great pics of the craziness!

It was great to meet Kyle Alberts and watch him get psyched up to do the jump. He's a super cool guy and knows how to work up the crowd. I was impressed with how he thanked everybody after he was the one that put his butt on the line. He did three jumps and the last one was a grabbed three, which was pretty damn impressive!

Thanks to Step Up Productions for putting this together, Kyle for tearing it up and Arun for taking the pics!

Here's a video of Kyle's last jump: http://wakeworld.com/Galleries/GetImage.asp?GalleryID=600&ImageID=36
