Cable Wake Boarding

Grassroots Tour 2016

The grassroots tour has its final at Ballyhass this Year on October 1st

REGISTER HERE FOR THIS YEARS FINALS

If you have never seen wakeboarding before you need to get yourself along to this years grassroots stops at Ballyhass Wakepark. You will see all level of rider, from people who have just learned to wakeboard to pro sponsored riders. It is a brilliant format for spectators and competitors alike. Check out the video below to see what happened at last seasons event. There will be an open day for activities on site at both stops so come for the morning and do some adventure activities like ziplinning, highropes or kayaking and stay to watch the main event in the afternoon. 

Each Grass Roots event is held over a full day and kicks off at about 9 or 10am. Until mid afternoon it is free riding on the Seistec cables with a few pro demos mixed in and pro coaching on hand to help improve rider’s skills. All the people who enter are encouraged to ride as much as possible all morning and it is great for growing the local community vibe at the park. Once mid afternoon comes all the riders get split into various divisions and the comp starts. In the comp each rider gets 3 passes with unlimited falls to impress the judges. The divisions are aimed at the first timer to the seasoned pro.

There are loads of prizes to hand out and there is an official prize giving after each competition finishes. Depending on each wake parks location an after party will be planned!
