Ride N Slide Event

July 9th, 2012

Wakestyle, Boots, Wakestyle, Boots!

It is great to see more wakestyle events coming into to kiteboarding scene! :)

In the UK we have the great Rhossy Park Jam hosted by Ben Todd and only 2 weeks ago we had a new event called the Morecambe Bay ‘Ride N Slide’.

As I am riding boots more now I thought this opportunity was sweet and I went along.

On the Saturday the wind was super strong so we decided to run a fun Big Air contest. The guys and girls were put in one category! I thought this was unfair but it was only fun so I went along with it :)

I took my 7m Vegas and was flying so high! I won all my heats up to the final. Was so much fun! I could not believe I had made it to the final amongst all the guys !

In the final I was on a 7m and the other 3 competitors were on 9m ! I still made some huge jumps but I came 4th.

Still super stoked I got up into the final.

Sunday was a glorious day- sun was out and the wind was about 20 knots. We had one big kicker and a rail set up. Throughout the day we all hit them trying to be as slick as possible. There were some really nice presses and some epic crashes too! Everyone had a FAB time and we all hope we can do it again next year.

A BIG THANK YOU to all the men and women who were involved and supported the event. Also to all the sponsors :)
