Ben Horan Pure Skate Style
Photographer Megan Miller, Standerd Quarterly

Sometimes Standerd Quarterly offers great pictures as a wallpaper for download. At the moment wakeskate shots are very popular there (last shot was Brian Grubb acid drop from an airplane wing). From the view as a photographer wakeskating has more potential than wakeboarding because in the pic you have two elements which you can arrange the wakeskate and the skater.

Thanks to JeffKnow for publishing the two pics of Ben Horan from Oak at ws.com. Pictures were shot by Megan Miller (more pics on Standerd Slices or on alligator.org). Wallpaper can be found on Standerd Quarterly.

Wakestock 2008 Toronto Canada
first pics Oakley pool setup

At sbcwakeboard.com you can see the first pics from the Wakestock 2008 in Toronto Canada. One of the most interesting thing for wakeskating was the Sesitec portable cable system 2.0. Here the note from sbcwakeboard homepage about this system:

Generating perhaps the most excitement of the day was the world debut of the new Sesitec System 2.0 portable wake cable system from Germany at the Oakley Wakeskate Pool Jam. This incredible cable system pulled the world’s top wakeskaters out of the Oakley launch pool, down a three rail, 10 stair set out into the wake course and then back to the pool. Beyond elevating pool events to a whole new level the System 2.0 showcased new possibilities for pool events and the whole sport.
All pics and information from sbcwakeboard.com. Like every year big props to Oakley for the pool setup.

Cruz training session kickflip to rupture of capsule

During the Romboso weekend the german and dutch wakeskaters showed a lot of new tricks. One highlight was the Friday morning session on which the whole crowd was on flips especially Dennis Knasiak and Lukas Süß with clean heelflips. The overall wakeskate riding level is obviously increasing in germany. The party and the night shooting at the pool were awesome, too.

Skate'n'Slide Volume 3 canceled

Here the latest infos from Patrick (Neverride, UGP Swiss) about the Skate'n'Slide in Zurich, Switzerland July 19th 2008:

Unfortunately it is not possible to realize a Skate'n'Slide in 2008. The searching of sponsors for the event was unsuccessfully, because it looks like Footballaballa is even more interesting then wakeskating, wakeboarding or skateboarding...

Is the Football-Fever out, it is already to late. With a heavy heart we have to advise that Skate'n'Slide Vol. 3 is cancelled for this year.

For all non European reader, the European championships in soccer was in Switzerland and Austria this year. We hope Skate'n'Slide is back 2009. All information from Skate'n'Slide homepage.

ERA Wakeskates

There is a new company at the wakeskate market. ERA is a company with a very different approach: no big team, no big commercials, no big online site, only wakeskates in length 39",40",41",42" for a nice price made by a skateboard company. The shape of the wakeskates looks like a classic one some years ago. Here are some information from ERA wakeskates:

Era Wakeskates are made in Oregon. With 8 plys of Oak and Douglas Fir makes this board 100% made in America and the strongest wood wakeskates on the market. All other wakeskate company's use Maple wood, we use Oak wood which is 15-25% stronger than Maple. Era wakeskates are 3D concaved with a 3 stage rocker, and variable edges. Marine grade clear coat for ultimate weather protection. All boards are gripped with Jessup grip tape. All boards are solid color with custom graphic printed on a HDPE plastic bottom. HDPE plastic is the most durable and bullet proof plastic available. Boards are direct from the manufacture so the savings are passed onto you!

All information are taken from the ERA website. Online shop can be found on Ebay.com.
