  • World's Wakeboarders Descend on the Albert Dock

    Liverpool’s Albert Dock is set to be transformed on Saturday 8th June as the world’s best wakeboarders descend on the city for the first time, to compete in Red Bull Harbour Reach 2013. Get down there from 2pm for the chance to witness 14 of the sport’s most elite athletes, alongside two British wildcard entries, performing a series of spectacular tricks - it's "set to be the contest’s biggest year yet".

    The set up will be purpose-built wake course will test the riders’ agility and technical abilities to the max, as they fly across jumps and platforms inspired by Liverpool’s industrial heritage.

    You don't need us to tell you that wakeboarding is one of the world’s fastest growing water sports. For those of you that haven't rubber necked the events down at Hove Lagoon when driving past, it's from surfing and waterskiing, the wakeboard is towed along at speed by a fixed cable or motorboat enabling the rider to skim along the water launching in to a series of jumps and stunts. Pretty rad!

    Riders ready for the challenge include 2012 Red Bull Harbour Reach champion, Dominik Hernler and British pro Marc Rossiter. Plus theres two wildcard entries selected from thirty up-and-coming wakeboarders who've been invited to take part in “The Road To Harbour Reach” - a four-stop tour of wake parks across the UK.

    Dominik Hernler commented “Red Bull Harbour Reach 2013 is set to be the biggest event yet, with a high profile list of world class riders on the invite list. Liverpool's Albert Docks will be a whole new challenge and the course design looks really big and complex. It's also great that young talent are being offered the chance to step up and compete alongside the world's best and hopefully demonstrate just what they have to offer here in the UK.”

    Red Bull Harbour Reach 2013 begins at 2pm at the Albert Dock, Liverpool on Saturday 8th June. Heats start at 2pm and the final will take place at 4pm. Entry is free to spectators (we love a freebie right).

  • What's it called when you're on a surfboard with a paddle?

    You know when you stand on surfboard with paddle....... It seems to be the biggest mystery around at the moment... we're constantly asked in our surf shopwhat’s that thing called where you stand up on the surfboard?” and told “you know that thing where your on a surfboard and you’ve got a paddle…”. If you're amongst the many who have seen people standing on a surfboard with a paddle, but aren't too sure what they are actually doing, the answer is stand up paddle boarding, or SUP for short.stand up paddle boarding - SUP
    A friend of mine recently came back from honeymoon in Mauritius, having spent almost every day out at sea on a stand up paddle board – yet still came home without a clue what it was actually called! SUP has become one of the most fashionable watersports around – the world wants to do it, but the world doesn’t seem to know what it’s called!stand up paddle board SUP
    We’re not sure why the name is such a mystery, but we do know it’s a whole lotta fun. We’re big promoters of paddle boarding and have been championing SUP for years and it seems to have become more and more of the ‘buzz’ sport to do, probably because pretty much anyone can have a go! Stand up paddle boards can be riden as fast or slow paced as you like. Take your SUP out to sea and catch action packed waves, or head down to the river on a calm day and chill as you float along. Many watersports centres now offer SUP fitness classes too – it’s awesome for core strength!

    With photos of the likes of Rihanna, Jennifer Aniston and Leonardo Di Caprio on their paddle boards in magazines, cruising along in the sun, it’s clear to see why everyones wondering what “that thing where you stand up on a surfboard” or “that thing I’ve seen the celebrities doing standing up on a board in the sea” is all about.

    So there you have it – the answer to the mystery “standing up on a surfboard thing” when you're on a surfboard with a paddle watersport is stand up paddle boarding AKA SUP! Now, get down to your nearest watersports centre and have a go!! You'll be addicted!
