It has been a crazy few months on the wakeboard calendar. Not only has there only been a multitude of awesome events on the GRT but we’ve had Wakestock, Cable and Boat Nationals and Cable Europeans. Add to this a couple of new additions to the Industry family, both Tim and Matt welcoming their first sprogs to the world, and you have a back log of getting photos and stories from the tour out to you.

We are up to date and are no going to be drip feeding short content and all photos from the tour so far, getting you up to speed over the next couple of weeks!

Grass Roots Tour Stop 1
Just Wake Park, 10th May ‘14
Just Wake Park kick the Grass Roots season off

Screen Shot 2014-08-13 at 13.23.13

The weekend of the 10/11th May was a great stat to the season at Tattershall. A full weekend of riding was on with the Rider League boat contest on the Saturday and the first stop of the 2014 Grass Roots Tour on the Sunday.

43 riders turned up to ride, braving all the elements, for the start to the second Grass Roots Tour season. Luckily, the System 2.0 set-up at Just Wake is pretty sheltered and so didn’t suffer from the full on winds as the boat contest lake did. The wind and some showers aside, the riders pushed themselves hard all day, in the Grass Roots pro coaching sessions in place at every tour stop. Pros CK and Lee Debuse taking doing an expert job with every single rider, getting them ready for the afternoon’s competition.
