2008 SLIDER SPECTACULAR CHAMPIONS
ALEX PHINNEY, YONEL COHEN, ANNA HAJEK, JONATHAN SUNDSTROM, LACEY MENKIN, PATRICK MULVANEY, JULIAN COHEN, KYLE HYAMS & ANTHONY MONACO CROWNED 2008 SLIDER SPECTACULAR CHAMPIONS
ORLANDO, FLORIDA – On Saturday November 1st the Orlando Watersports Complex held its 6th Annual Slider Spectacular. The event was an obstacles-only competition for both wake boarders and wake skaters of all skill levels. Competition started at 11AM and lasted all the way up till 5PM, with a short rain delay before the finals.
The event brought out over 50 riders and everyone delivered their best tricks out to the cable. Alex Phinney, Yonel Cohen and Anna Hajek dominated the wakeboard divisions. Jonathan Sundstrom, Lacey Menkin and Patrick Mulvaney finished first in our wake skate divisions. The wakeboard and wake skate Pro-Outlaw division awarded cash prizes to those who could throw their best tricks from our sliders and kickers. Julian Cohen won overall Pro Outlaw in the wakeboard division, whereas Kyle Hyams did so in our Pro Outlaw wake skate division.
The Pro Outlaw divisions were basically set up as best trick competitions. Julian Cohen definitely came through as defending champ by taking home 2 out of 3 best tricks. He stuck a switch backboard to switch nose press to switch front board out of the A-frame. Of our Big White kicker he stomped a big switch back 5. Our very own featured rider Adam Errington took home the other check by sticking a sick switch 270 on to front 270 of our favorite slider “Nessy”.
Our Pro Outlaw wake skaters definitely threw down this year as well. Overall winner Kyle Hyams landed a 270 shove on to front board backside big spin out of the picnic table. Ben Kaiser came through with a sweet side Ollie 270 to shove off of the flat bar. To top things off, Dieter Humpsch stomped a huge front side Indy big spin.
