Wakestock 2011 is ON!!
The gates opened yesterday afternoon and the campers began to stream in. With the sun shining down, the first of the happy campers pitched their tents and got ready for the huge Propaganda pre party that kicked off at 6pm. The site is looking great with green, green grass and blue skies. Making the most of the great weather, the wakeboarders also kicked off the action out on the water with a practice session at Pwllheli Marina. The guys and gals out there showed us just what we have to look forward to in the pro comp with some sick tricks and skills on display. There was a slight breeze but that did nothing to stop the riders who are pretty used to it by now. With a great Mastercraft boat to tow them, they got in to the swing of things for the weekend. As the sun began to set on the festival site the huge pre party began and campers were treated to a display of skills on the decks from DJ’s Toddla T and MC Serocee, Wakestock fave Goldierocks who has returned to the event again for this year, DJ Dan and the Propaganda Residents Micky Slim and Jigsaw who got the party started big time!
Get yourselves down to Pwllheli Marina today to see the start of the pro competition. The wake from the Mastercraft boat will be kicking up the perfect platform for riders to get booted into the air. You can expect to see some of the world’s best riders in action and all of the UK’s big names will competing including past winners Dan Nott and Jonty Green and many others like Sam Carne, Ben Hitch, James Young and up and coming riders like Freddy Carter and Jorge Gill. The action starts at 12.20pm at the North Quay in Pwllheli so get there is good time to pick your viewing spot.
There are still a limited number of tickets available. You can get hold of them at the Box Office on arrival at the event and in local shops, but get them asap as they might all gone if you leave it too late! The Box Office is clearly signposted at the entrance to the festival site.
