Global: Port Haverigg Ride ‘N’ Slide
Ride’N’Slide 2015 Press Release
This year’s Ride’N’Slide event at Port Haverigg in the South Lakes almost never got off the Wake when at the eleventh hour the school’s prizes sponsor pulled out leaving Lee and Leanne who run the school with a huge dilemma.
The annual event attracts riders from across the North West. The school is one of the originals at which ‘the Northern Monkey’s’ cut their Wake teeth, some of whom have moved on to ride at Parks these days, but they feel passionately about their home and always return for this fantastic event.
With nothing to lose the school put a desperate shout out to Wake and Surf brands in the UK and Europe and were disappointed when they received rejection emails, imagining they were going to have to call the event off.
When all was looking lost, Protest www.protest.eu stepped in offering Men’s, Ladies and Groms Snow Jackets, Boardies & Bikinis, Sunnies and more, and then Ultra Sport Europe www.ultrasporteu.com offering even more prizes, and now the event is ON!
So for a chance to bag some truly awesome prizes, plus ride some fantastic water in beautiful surroundings at this grass roots event at one of the original UK Wake Schools, get yourself along.
The event is Saturday August 1st, registration is from 10am, the boat and obstacle comps run all day with Grom’s, Men’s and Ladies divisions, all levels are welcome, this is a Freeride event (10 minutes on the water with unlimited falls) behind the legendary Superair Nautique and Pro Star for Groms (unless you choose the Superair!), Registration is £20.
A BBQ will run throughout day for riders and spectators and the bar will be open! There is an after party and presentation at the Ski Bar from 6pm with live music from punk pop band Willowside Park https://www.facebook.com/willowsidepark.
Lakeside camping is available £20 for the weekend or £10 for one night.
