Rusty Malinoski, Andrew Adkison, and I spent the weekend hanging with Charlotte Ski Boats (local MasterCraft dealer) for the Third Annual Wylie’s Wicked Wakefest. The Halloween themed event went down yesterday on Lake Wylie at Lee Levandowski’s place (the owner/operator of Charlotte Ski Boats). The focal point of the day was a double up contest in the afternoon, but spectators were also kept busy with games, raffles, and a costume contest judged by Rusty. The laid-back nature of the contest encouraged riders of all levels to come out and compete for the $2,000 purse that was up for grabs. Adam Fields took the win with a perfectly executed nose grab slim 5 (video included below). Thanks to Lee, Amanda, and the crew at Charlotte Ski Boats for such a great day; it’s events like this that keep our sport growing and oriented in the right direction. See you in 2014!
