No Comments News

Awake Fest

The Awake Fest is a wakeboarding and music festival taking place at Glasfryn Wake Parc from 10th to 12th July 2015. Glasfryn is located just outside the iconic and stunning Welsh village of Abersoch. A location which is embedded forever in Europe’s history of wakeboarding!

Awake Fest will host a stop of the Grassroots Tour and a Pro Comp with £5,000 worth of prize money. Glasfryn Wake Parc operates with 3 Sesitec System 2.0s and Industry Wake Parks will be pimping the setup especially for the event.

Glasfryn are adding 2 new full time features to their park; an Industry Wake Parks Transfer Box and an Incline Box with Metal Handrail. On top of this and for the pro event, there will be a kicker gap to a raised missile jib and an interesting addition to the classic Leviathan top rail.

The prize money in the pro event will be distributed across mens, ladies and a big air comp on the Friday evening!

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.
Additional footage : James Stuart.
