ELLINGHAM WAKEBOARD COMPETITION 2013

Ellingham hosted its first ever wakeboarding competition this year on Saturday 13th July 2013. We were sponsoring the competition and it was such a fantasticday with some superb riders, smashing out some great moves. Lots of people came down to watch the riders and enjoy the afternoon with a BBQ and drinks.

18 guys and girls took part in this event and big prizes included up to £175 worth of S2AS vouchers and other prizes were kindly supplied by DC. Every rider was absolutely brilliant, but we did have to choose the winners:
