Feel the Bro
We know you guys just can’t get enough about Brostock 2010, so here’s a little more from the weekend of craziness in Bull Shoals, Arkansas to push your bro-ometer to the limit. As you most likely know the contest portion of Brostock was insane: full of big air, insane tricks, screaming fans, and even some last minute drama to cap things off. But what you might not already know is just how awesome the event and site were as a whole.
Brostock on Bull Shoals was by far the biggest Brostock to date. We met kids who’d driven from as far as Minnesota and west Texas just to come join in on the shenanigans, and Bull Shoals proved to be the perfect host. Unlike in years past, the locals and even the law enforcement officials were stoked to see the Brostock circus roll into town. Athletes and media bros regularly found themselves being shuttled around wherever and whenever needed, the local restaurants expanded their hours to accommodate everybody, and the Eastwold family and their entire crew at Bull Shoals Boat Dock Marina bent over backwards to make everything come together smoothly.
Aside from the town of Bull Shoals, the lake by the same name also happened to be an amazing spot for Brostock. The conditions this year were the best ever for the double up contest and it definitely showed in the level of riding. While Bull Shoals is still somewhat remote, it’s not nearly as remote as Powell, which allowed for LOTS more fans to come. The ring of boats surrounding the cove where the contest was held was almost unbelievable, and from the looks of things nobody was acting terribly stupid or getting hassled much by the water po-po. Everybody just came out to have one hell of a time and enjoy some of the best wakeboarding in the world.
If you’re reading this and starting to feel like you missed out, well you did. So book your calendar next year and save up some vacation time (and get luggage that can hold some board shorts, sunscreen, and your biggest party hat), ’cause if Brostock ’10 is any indication, Brostock ’11 is gonna be even better.
