Win The BOMB for your home wake park.

No Comments News

bomb-hits-2

The Grassroots Tour was setup and is run by Industry Wake Parks. Every year we always give away an obstacle to the wake park with the most ranking points. In 2016 we are going to give away the infamous BOMB feature, which is currently floating at Liverpool Wake Park. It is a mega fun feature, super easy to use and totally different.

The feature has a nice mellow incline which sends you onto the metal bomb! Although it is actually a drop tank from a Tornado fighter jet. In its former life it used to hang under the fighter jet and was used for reserve fuel.

We managed to get hold of this Drop Tank before it was scrapped and turned it into one of the most fun wakeboard features around.

How can you win it!

It is mega simple.
The wake park with the most ranking points at the end of the 2017 tour will win this feature.
When you enter a stop of the Grassroots Tour, you gain ranking points for yourself but also for your home wake park.
For example if you win your division at a stop, you gain 100 points for yourself and 100 points towards your home wake park. If you come 2nd, you get 80 points, etc.

We keep a running total and will keep you all informed on which wake park is leading the race.

In 2014 Just Wake won a brand new small kicker.
In 2015 North Devon Wake Park won a brand new large kicker.
