On Saturday 30th July 2011 the quiet fishing village of Lyme Regis on the South coast of England will play host to one of the most innovative wakeboarding events seen in the UK.
Industry Wakeparks will be building and installing a bespoke 'wakepark' especially designed for the harbour which will see 12 of UK's best wakeboarders jumping the Grade 1 listed harbour wall along with performing tricks on a number of custom built features, which include Kickers, roof top rail, boat jib, incline to bouy jib and more.
Don't expect to see any boats towing the riders - a revolutionary towing system, the Sesitec System 2.0, will tow athletes back and forth across the harbour and extended wakepark features. This event will close off one of the busiest weeks of the year in Lyme Regis the RNLI week.
We couldn't bring this amazing event down to Lyme Regis without getting the local community involved and this is why we will be running wakeboarding taster sessions for the local residents and media on the Sunday morning after the event. More information will follow on how to apply for a place in the taster sessions.
