  • 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).

  • Mark Teti (Ocean Sports staff) wins Hove Lagoon Wake Park Box Jam Competition

    The 26th July was Lagoon Wake Park’s first competition of the season – THE BOX JAM.

    Held during their weekly club night, there was an awesome turn out of riders ready to bust out their tricks on the box.
    Condition were near perfect, super hot with flat water to shred on.

    Hosted by the entertaining Matt Crowhurst, with Alastair Carlow giving him a hand to judge.

    Riders were shredding hard, putting on an awesome show for the spectators. They each had three hits on the box to nail their best move and gain maximum points – the most stylish four going through to the final.

    The final four to go head to head were Ryan Edwards, Mark Teti, Edwardo Zoppola and Oliver West, each having another three hits at the box. The standard of each rider was high making it difficult to judge, which lead to a head to head heat. The pressure was on with each rider having one final hit on the box to land the best trick.

    Well done to our man Mark Teti (shop staff) for landing a Backside 900 and claiming first prize!!!! Gold star for The Teti
