Unleashed Magazine Online

The French Unleashed wakeboard and friends magazine has published the issues #25 and #26 as PDF. After 25 French editions, the Unleashed Magazine decided to become International. The issue #26 comes in French and English. Here is the statement from Unleashed about this topic.

The reason is because people from different countries wanted to have Unleashed in their country contenting the European and Asian style of wakeboarding and wakeskating. With magazines already covering the American market, there is a absence in representing the European and Asian scene...

For purists the magazine is still available in paper in France and some other European countries. Here are the links to the first online issues:

Sesitec 2.0 Portable Cable System
Wake The Line Red Bull event with Cable 2.0

From hearsay the Red Bull Wake the Line event will be pulled by the new Sesitec 2.0 Cable. One more reason for some short info about this new portable cable system.

The Sesitec System 2.0 is essentially a straight-line cable system that can compliment full size cable park setups for events or as stand-alone rail parks. But the System 2.0 can also be used for private backyard setups because it is the first cable system that is actually portable. And unlike other two tower systems, System 2.0 was designed specifically for wake sports and provides a continuous ride—meaning that you won’t have to drop the handle or stop after one pull down the rail course. The required water area is length: 80 - 700ft and width: 50 - 80ft

All information is taken from the Wake Park Project (North American distributor of Sesitec). For more information contact the guys at Wake Park Project or directly contact Sesitec.
