The UKs newest wake park first opened its doors almost a month ago now and since their soft launch Festival Wake Park have had nothing but rave reviews about all aspects of the park. The place is simply phenomenal and now its time to shout this to the world, this coming weekend Festival Wake Park will hosts its grand opening, everything is now 100% perfect and ready to show the rest of the cable parks how its done!
Festival now has what is arguably the best collection of rails of any park in the UK, all expertly put together by the team at Industry Wake Parks, we just held the 2013 Mystic photoshoot there yesterday and shredded the fun box for the first time and it is pure perfection! The rails are made by riders for riders, with something for everyone, super floaty kickers perfect for spinning, a huge Red Bull kicker that will be used at Harbour Reach, 2 massive rails and more. Add to this a cable higher and tighter than many others in the UK and you create a wakeboarder wet dream!
To celebrate the official opening the government has decided to grant another bank holiday, or it could be because of the Queen, who knows, but either way this huge 4 day weekend will be one to remember at Festival.
To kick things off we have a full demo, Hyperlite, Ronix, CWB and Mystic there in force, then the Mystic Big Air followed by a party to mark the opening of the Festival Boardsports Store, and rumour has it the Red Bull girls will be there to lead the party on to the clubs in Bas Vegas after. To top this off some of the UKs best athletes will be there including our team and more so if its advise you want or some huge air tricks to photograph we have plenty to keep you satisfied.
