Last weekend I headed up to South Lakes Ski School for the old school ‘pros and joes’ wakeboard contest. It was super awesome and was probably the funniest event of the season so far 🙂
We were riding behind Jack Hammersley’s sweet old Nautique and the rules were that everyone had to ride an old retro board..
I was lucky that I found an old Tara Hamilton pro model Hyperlite down at Quayside and managed to sneak a few practise sets in beforehand- not to say it still didn’t feel super wired and I rode on it like a total sketchball 🙂
With my board all set, I also managed to sweet talk the guys over at O’Neill wetsuits into sending me out a suit from their retro collection.. It was ace!
The contest was split into two divisions, ‘pros’ and ‘joes’, and I was the only girl riding.. No girls division, it definitely felt like an old school contest!
Having thrown down the first invert of the day in my practise set I was feeling pretty happy with myself – I think the boys were nervous they would get beat by a girl haha!
Despite all the banter on the dock, the guys laid it down and we all put on a good show. I was stoked I landed a clean front roll, yet I couldn’t compete with Kurt Grahams batwing on a one directional board with toestraps.. Crazy!
All in all it was a super awesome day. Super fun to go to an event and not have to worry about riding the best or winning the medal.. It was just about having fun and I think that’s my favourite thing to do 🙂
Big thanks to Jack Hammersley for a fun day, not to mention a great party after too..
I think Adam and I’s outfits stole the show 😉
I’m so excited that the GIRLS RIDE DAY is back for 2012! Not only back, but bigger than ever! wohooo!
With great prizes from O’Neill wetsuits and clothing, goodies from Mastercraft & Nalu Beads plus a range of boards to demo from Hyperlite, this is set to be a day to remember!
With limited spaces this year be sure to call up soon and book, can’t wait to see you there!! 🙂
A few weeks ago, the WakeGirls went on another SICK trip to the Animal Flowrider in Bedford. Its fair to say we all had a great time, with plenty of laughs. Without waffling on too much, check out this sick video of our trip!
A big thanks to FlowHouse and to Steph ‘Caller-than cool’ for making it happen!
A few weeks ago a couple of friends and I headed up to foggy London town for none other than the O’Neill London Premier of new surf movie ‘Fighting Fear’. Having seen all the hype on Facebook and watched the trailer, I knew the film was bound to be a goodun’, and was super excited to get to go check it out. Continue reading
