I heard the worlds were really cool. Six obstacles and built just for wakeskaters. Hair tore up the obstacles and hit a big spin to a back big spin and nearly landed the flip kick out of the pool.

yep the worlds were awsome.......

i was in charge of the wakeskating at the worlds so i can tell you everything about it.

course:
we had our own lake just for wakeskating. i rode the course after the wakeboarders set it up and changed a few things to make it skate friendly. we had 4 skate specific sliders in the course, thats not including the pool. the pool was a 40 foot long volcano made of dirt. they lined it with plastic and we ran a pump into it full time. the water level of the pool was between 2 and 3 feet higher than the lake level at each end was a rail going up into. or out of depending which way you hit it.

schedual:
thursday practice
friday practice
saturday practice
sunday heats and finals

some of the riders:
austin hair rode great all weekend, then pulled out some tech at the end of his finals run. 1st
jd webb..... oh my goodness, he was scared he was going to embarrass himself but he kicked ass. like really kicked ass. hit every slider and hit them well, style tech and quantity.
parks is just a natural at anything on the water. he ollied into the pool, shuv onto the box.
aarron rathy: his 1st practice run was killer. he did everything bar a flip trick. amazing to watch another natural

results: i can remember, sorry

hope you liked the event..... wish more people came.
