A few months ago Jobe started the Jobe Wakeboard Design Contest. In this contest Jobe offered everyone the chance to design a Jobe Wakeboard. The winning design would be included in the Jobe product range. The winner would also receive a free copy of the winning wakeboard!
The contest was a big success and Jobe has received a large number of entries from all over the world. It's been a few days since the contest closed and a winner has been selected. It was a very difficult decision as the average design level was very high.
The winner of the contest is Ben Sterzenbach from Germany. His design, “Jobe Illustrious,” has been voted best design by the Jobe team. “Ben’s design really suits our company philosophy: Fusion of Fun. Besides this his design is very innovative and unique in the wakeboard scene. His refreshing view has led to a great design, which we will include in our product range with great pride. Ben has a great eye for detail, which is clear to see in the design and we are more than happy to work together with Ben on this,” said a Jobe / Jstar spokesman.
The “Jobe Illustrious” will be included in the 2011 Jobe / Jstar catalogue and will be available at most Jobe / Jstar dealers. Later this season, Jobe will announce more details regarding this wakeboard, so keep an eye on our website at jobesports.com.
