“The Welsh Wakeboard Open 2010 was a fantastic event and attracted capacity entries. The atmosphere was really relaxed although the competition was certainly hot, particularly in the Men’s Open Division. This year’s event promises to be even better as Glasfryn Wakeparc now has three System 2.0 cables and the Oshea Wall Rides which will really test the riders and be a great spectacle to watch.” Commented Jonathan Williams-Ellis, Owner of Glasfryn Parc.
