Nicola Butler, Andrew Adkison, Daniel Powers, and I flew into Johannesburg, South Africa last week for Wet & Wild: Spring Break Edition. The event took place this past weekend at Emerald Resort and Casino, which is about an hour outside Johannesburg. It’s South Africa’s biggest wake event with over 5,000 people in attendance throughout the day. After the wake contest, there was an FMX demo that helped set the tone for the after-party; the after-party included numerous international DJ’s and ran from 4pm until 4am. Needless to say, our crew had a good time that night. Check the photos below for a glimpse inside Wet & Wild 2013…many thanks to Shaun Meredith for organizing the event and hosting us in South Africa!!
