Thanks to Tige, WWS
and of course Wake9.com
, we had our first Wakesurf competition here in Colorado over the weekend and it was an absolute blast! If the tour is near you, you should definitely go and enter! If you're an amateur like me, take advantage of the Pro Clinics and polish up on your skills, get some riding time behind that powerful Z3 wave and then compete on Sat/Sun!
I met a ton of new people, Rob and Jeanine Harrington, the Kinsey's, Dennis Horton and of course the Garcia family who absolutely put their heart and soul into this sport. I did a clinic with Chris Kinsey and made a lot of progress on my riding and was able to grab a 2nd place finish in the Men's Amateur group. He is a great instructor as well as a great rider.
The Z3 wave was dialed in and ready for the pro's but us Amateur's got to experience it too and all I can say is
. No sexual innuendo intended but it was big, long, and powerful!
We got a lot of compliments about our venue here in Colorado. The event was held in a cove that has a bluff overlooking the entire course and the spectators had a pretty good view so that they could see all of the action.
Like I said, if the Endless Wave Tour
is coming through your area or within a reasonable distance, please go check it out and support the sport, you won't regret it! Thanks again to everyone that put in the effort, we loved it!
