It's abooot time, eh? lol

Those dudes at Boarder Pass are so rad! They put their System 2.0 in a flooded hockey arena to create the worlds largest indoor wake park. Crazy Canucks! Must be something in the drinking water. I heard fluoride it bad for you.

My friend sent me this short vid and says more will be coming soon!

is that the same pool that they did the winch jam in the last few years. I think they called the Amsterdam Rail Jam or something?

One and the same. Its going to be a lot better this year, 2.0 living up to its potential by eliminating the down time pulling the winch back out. Chris, Tim, and the rest of the dudes at Boarder Pass rule!

Same pool that the Amsterdam winch jam was. It's changed a bit and this year's focus was getting new riders onto the water.

I didn't get to try out the sesitec system as I couldn't do the 4-5:30 time slot on week nights due to work. also on the weekends I was busy.

It's great to see this with the sport and the media attention from prime time news tv spots, online videos and major newspapers

Gentlemen, the worlds largest indoor wake park was in fact created by the Industry Wake Parks team (industrywakeparks.co.uk) at the 2011 London International Boatshow in a pool measuring 70m x 24m and featured a banked box and kicker with grandstand seating for 800 people. The pull was provided by by a 2.0 which was bolted into the roof structure of the building via some Sesitec/Industry bracketry.

Check it out:

The Toronto lake is actually much deeper... It is deep enough for many boats to be used. This year there was even a 25' centre console edgewater with twin egines...

Not to be a pissing match... both are cool but different purpose.

Oops. DEFIANT wake is right, the setup at the London Boat show was 9 meters longer. So Toronto had the second largest setup, just to be clear.
