Stop #2 of The Wakeskate Tour Presented by Rockstar
Nike Retention is back for it's second year out here at the world famous Horan farm in Nahunta, Georgia. Starting May 18th, the world's best wakeskaters will be throwing it down for $10K in prize money on the Retention drop with new ledges designed and built by Ben Horan.
Nike’s Retention will host Stop #2 of The Wakeskate Tour and, after last year's Retention and an amazing Stop #1 at the Byerly Toe Jam, you can count on some of the best wakeskating ever seen to go down. This will be one for the books and you won’t want to miss it. We invite fans and spectators to come as you are and join us on Saturday, May 19th for the main event. 24 Of the world's best riders will put together their best lines in hopes of making it to the six-man “Super Final” running from 7pm to 9pm when we will finally crown the winner.
After winning Stop #1, young gun Austin Pastura will be on hand shredding to keep his position at the top. Coming off last year's Nike Retention first place finish and a second place finish at Stop #1, Ben Horan is definitely a rider to watch. In The Wakeskate Tour rankings, Austin and Ben were followed by Andrew Pastura, Nick Taylor, Danny Hampson, and Reed Hansen.
We can’t say it enough, and if you made it last year, then you know - This will be the biggest event in wakeskating history.
