I am surprised nobody has commented on this yet......

Tomorrow in Lake Geneva WI twenty of the top pro's will compete for ten grand cash in a nighttime double up contest.

We will be there shooting the event, and a video edit will follow next week. Hopefully someone is going to throw us a 1080!

I'll be there with my buddy. Should be good times! I went to Nationals on Saturday and it looks like the pros will be ready to throw down and party afterwards. See you there!

sucks soven wont be there, i was really hoping for a 1080 battle between him and harf. Kinda hoping to capture the first "real" 1080 on video. I think Ruck could be a sleeper on that too though.....

I will be there. The light testing last night was amazing. I could see the trees on shore and piers near the Geneva inn from across the lake.

clay, you mean "wasnt there"

Keni, you guys put on a great event, with a huge mellow crowd and from what i could tell no problems at all. Well run, everything went on schedule, and I think your venue allowed everyone in the house to have a great view!

Wakecoupons got some great shots, even with the chase boat in all of em, and you all should see a short sweet edit in the next couple of days.

For those of us that just couldnt hang out and party.......what did I miss and how was the band?

WOW! What a tremendous event! 20 of the top pro riders under stadium lights pulled by X-Stars in great water conditions! The riders absolutely killed it, and the huge crowd was loving every minute. I was by some non-wakeboarders and they still seemed very appreciative of the skill involved in the sport. What a great promotional event for the whole sport. Best event EVER to hit the Midwest!!

Still shots hardly do the event or the vibe justice but here's some that are appropriate to share . Enjoy!

It was a great event. Thanks to The Board Shop, Skinny's, Mastercraft, and Red Bull for putting on such a great event. We watched from boat but decided we should be on shore next year (I hope there is a next year!).

Man, what a good time! Kick ass sunset, water, boats, and pros riding double ups. Getting to hang with the pros in the bar afterward, and watching Rucks' band. Damn fine evening, if ya ask me.

I will have to say that it was one of the best events I have ever been too. Put together really well and tons of fun. There was such a good vibe there, and the crowd response was off the hook. It was one of the few times I have ever been in the boat and heard the crowd like it was an actual sporting event. Props to everyone involved.

Thanks for the good time!
Travis

Travis - I kept trying to find you at the party afterwards, but it was fairly difficult to track you down. I wanted to thank you in person for being a part of our event - I'll try to catch you at Expo if you're around!

THANKS AGAIN!!!
