3 STAR WORLD TOUR STOP & RED BULL WAKE OF STEEL QUALIFIER
After the big first WAKE PARADE edition at the Energie AG’s hydroelectric power station at Gmunden, Austria, last year, this time the WAKE PARADE will go down on 2nd June 2012 at one of Austria’s top notch spots of these days: Fetzysworld Salmsee.
The WAKE PARADE is an obstacle only contest, held on a 2-tower-cable. Everyone can join and collect IWWF worldranking points (400pts) in his age category (from boys to masters). Loads of nice non-cash-prices, trophies and 1.000 € cash price are waiting plus 2 wildcards for the Red Bull Wake Of Steel two weeks later, at the 16th of June in the industry harbour of Linz (AUT). This will be the biggest Wakeboarding-Event of 2012 in Austria, with some of the worlds best athletes, the spots in the starting lists are very rare. The WAKE PARADE will be the possibility to get a place through qualification, if you’re not one of those happy guys which have been invited!
Let’s talk about the WAKE PARADE setup and event. Daniel “Fetzy” Fetz, the host of the WAKE PARADE, is known as one of the worlds most progressive Cablewakeboarders. He has won more competitions over the last 10 years, than some groms participated at and of course is also well known for his Wakeboard School which is located at the Salmsee. Since last year Fetzysworld changed from a boat school into a cable school as well. With the setup of a Sesitec System 2.0 and some brand new obstacles by Shape Obstacles, there are now multiple possibilities to shred.
The System is the place where the WAKE PARADE will be held. It’s gonna be an obstacle only format, due to the cause, that Red Bull Wake Of Steel will be alike. The Shape Obstacles, that are provided for the competition, are a spine kicker and a rooftop box. Best trick on each of it will be counted and summed up, so we get to see some sick as riding!
There will be a separate overall obstacle performance of the whole day from all categories, which will decide about the price money split and the wildcards. That means for e.g.: if a Junior Men rider will land a double backroll on the kicker in the qualification and a super stylish rail trick in the final, he can also win a wildcard.
Registration will be needed until 28th May on cablewakeboard.net. Entry fee costs 45 Euros which includes BBQs and Drinks on friday and saturday, free trainingsession during friday and on saturday morning. Of course it’s still possible to buy some boatsets as well. The team at Fetzysworld will welcome every participant. For accommodation and additional information, just have a look at the bulletin.
The WAKE PARADE will be a perfect kick-off for a stunning wakeboard event month. Followed by the WAKE CONTROL in Vienna which will be a 4 Star World Tour Stop. The best obstacle performance of the day in Vienna will also win 2 Wildcards for the Red Bull Wake of Steel (15.-16.06).
You can be sure, that Fetzy knows what a good competition needs and that is why there won’t be anything missing at Fetzysworld during this years WAKE PARADE. Thanks to the sponsors that are responsible that this event will take place. First of all the Energie AG, followed by ION, FOX, Blue Tomato, Shape Obstacles and TSG.
