This is a view from the water looking at the viewing area and the corner of the cabana on the left. We will be doing the live broadcast from under that corner of the cabana and Dano the Mano will be doing the MC duties for the entire event. The dock is behind and to the right.
This is under the cabana, awards will be held under her at the end. This is setup for a wedding I think, not sure how it will look at the event but I am sure it will be top notch based on all I have seen from World Sports & Marketing.
Pretty amazing, I met with the head of the film crew, and its going to be top notch, they will have a videographer in the boat along with a couple on the beach, etc. Cool for me to see wakesurfing treated at the same level as wake boarding.
Lastly, check out this video of some of the highlights of the online event, and most of these pro riders will be out. Make sure you watch live tomorrow! (Monday 9/10).
We will be broadcasting at 9am EST today, get started earlier for wakesurfing, went slow yesterday, the lake is deep enough for surfing, but like seaweed or whatever its called in florida is right at your feet underwater. I have no clue about wakeboarding setup but I know that was wreaking havoc with our surf wake all day. We added more weight for today to compensate in the right places, should help. Did you see Chase's air 180s though? Didn't seem to hurt him much, I didn't think that much air was even possible.
Check out the pro camera on the jet ski behind him. There were pro cameras in the boat, on skis, on the shore, its been amazing to be a part of an event with this type of budget and no expense spared kind of attitude to make the riders look their best.
That was cool. only thing better would to be in the boat!
The DJ was killing it when there was down time and we even received some shout outs!
Thanks Wake9 for taking the wheel and driving...tip of the spear!!!
