Media Contest Entry from Hove Lagoon

No Comments News

We really like this entry from Dan Yates for the Grassroots Tour Media Contest!
Shot and filmed at Hove Lagoon.

The Grassroots tour hit Lagoon Watersports in Hove on September 28th 2014, the tough decision was whether to ride or film. Filming the comp and getting a ride in after seemed like a good compromise, so with camera in hand and wakeboard on dock, the Grassroots comp was on.
I wanted to produce something showing the awesome day of riding but also what the Grassroots tour is about and what it’s doing for wakeboarding in the UK. Everyone threw down some sweet riding on the day so thanks to all the riders for shredding. Big thanks to Matt Crowhurst, CK Koester and Nick Coates for the interviews, and thanks to James Stuart for his additional footage.

Music : Odesza – Say My Name (feat. Zyra) (Hermitude Remix)
Produced, Shot & Edited by Dan Yates from Cloudbreak Creative.

Ballyhass report & video

No Comments News

Stop 16 of the GRT took us across the pond to the beautiful Ballyhass just outside Cork, Ireland.

Ballyhass lakes is relatively new to the world of wakeboarding but has been an existing outdoor activity centre for some years now. Adding a couple of Sesitec 2 tower cable to the centre was a natural progression and has already brought a mini community together of the local boat riders and newly found cable riders in the area.

Competition day:

With a good contingency making the trip down from the host site of stop one, Wake Dock in Dublin and various other riders from the thriving boat scene Ireland has to offer, we were in for a ‘savage’ day!

Things kicked off bright and early at 8:30 with the Ballyhass lakes staff taking to the water and getting their final practice laps in before their first competition. Heaps of people rolled in to check out the action, by 3pm the perimeter of the quarry was full of spectators.

It was a classic mix of sun, heavy rain, wind and hail which we all know and love but with Mike Lacey on hand from Monster Energy Ireland we were kept dry with some lovely marquees and enough Monster to keep us going until dusk. Read more
