Greenville, IL – Extreme Power Sports has announced that they will be hosting the sixth annual “Kyle Fest” freeride wakeboard event July 16 – 18, 2010 on the Kaskaskia River in Evansville, IL.  Kyle Fest will be held at the WaterStreet Bar and Grill on the river.

“Kyle Fest is the biggest freeride wake fest in the Midwest. We’re bigger and better than ever with this year being our 6th annual. Making Kyle Fest so great is the riding conditions and the “home base” location of WaterStreet Bar & Grill. The event is a weekend full of boarding, camping, and entertainment, on the Kaskaskia River, which is endless pure butter. The river is 20 ft deep shore-to-shore, narrow (no cross waves going up and down river but, big enough for double ups), and lots of turns in it to stay out of the wind.” Said Kyle Smith, founder of Kyle Fest.

Ride all weekend on a never-ending stretch of river with private lake like conditions. At Kyle Fest participants are on the water all day wakeboarding, wakeskating, wakesurfing, floating, or just hang ‘in out riding in the boat.  The point of the event is to come together with other watersports enthusiasts in order to grow the sport as much as possible. Attendees are encouraged to get in and out of different boats all day and try new and/or different products, such as boards and bindings.

“Bring your boat, bring all your friends and their boats, bring your gear, and plan on having a great weekend. Kyle Fest is held, every year at the Kaskaskia because of its deep, protected, and narrow body of water. This way tons of wakeboarders can ride at the same time and always have glass! The river is like a two lane highway so there is little room to turn in circles sending rollers down the river.  Also, the river is very clean of logs and other trash. It is the wakeboarding haven of the Midwest!” – Kyle Smith
