FOCUS ON WAKEBOARD
Wakeboard will exclusively be at the first stage of the 2017 FWS, in Montpellier. This year, we are waiting for an exceptional competition with high-level athletes. In Montpellier, the Wakepark will be settle in front of the region hotel on the Lez riverbanks.
The public positioned on banks, will be able to encourage the participants who will benefit a 25,000m3 basin equipped with about ten modules. Riders will be using a Wakestation cable setup by FISE AREA.
Throw back on Montpellier 2016’s winners:
1 – Oka GUENTHER 82 pts
2 – Daniel Grant 76,33 pts
3 – TIMO KAPL 74,99 pts
Would the youngest athlete of the FISE, Aurelie GODET continue her ascension? Would Daniel GRANT be at the first place of the podium against Oka GUENTHER this year?
This international festival is also the opportunity for the riders to meet their counterparts of other disciplines, a privileged moment.
