RED BULL WAKE OF FAME HITS THE POOLS
Top Wake Athletes Create Waves at Ft. Lauderdale Aquatic Complex
Red Bull Wake of Fame marks the next generation of wakeboarding and wakeskating as it pushes the boundaries of the sport. At the legendary Ft. Lauderdale Aquatic Complex that is nestled just behind the International Swimming Hall of Fame, there are three pools that typically host world champion swimmers and divers but on Friday, December 3rd it will transform into a â€œwake parkâ€ and become the newest playground for the industryâ€™s top riders.
Set amongst three outdoor pools â€“ training lap pool, competition pool and diving well â€“ each is linked together by features including hand rails, sliders, a quarter pipe and a kicker that are sure to make for some big air tricks. The winch system allows the athletes to use their most creative and dynamic skills along the course, which is inspired by skateboard parks. Each athlete will be judged on execution, difficulty, style, amplitude and overall composition of tricks in their run.
A field of the top international wake athletes has been hand selected to compete in this innovative new format competition.
Â· Twelve wakeboarders: JD Webb, Adam Errington, Parks Bonifay, Steel Laferty, Ollie Derome, Raphael Derome, Keith Lidberg, Danny Harf, Nico von Lerchenfeld, Kevin Henshaw and Shane Bonifay
Â· Six wakeskaters: Brian Grubb, Reed Hansen, Ben Horan, Nick Taylor, Andy Pastura and Brandon Thomas
