For the first time ever, a mobile wakeboard line system will be installed at a public outdoor pool, enabling boarders to ride the stadium pool in two directions. The resulting competition course will total 320 meters in length. Additionally, four adjacent pools will be connected by mobile ramps and rail obstacles. The international wakeboarding and wakeskating scene has set its sights on the event – after all, this is the first contest to be held in a public swimming pool instead of a natural body of water. Invitations to enter have been extended to eight wakeskaters. Riders include some Young Guns from the Nike6.0 Team.
Here is the wakeskate rider list:
- Enric Dosta
- Kevin Kopp
- Dennis Knasiak
- Tarik Ghoniem
- Andy Kolb
- Young Gun from Nike 6.0
- 2 Wildcards on the german wakeskate nationals

The onset is a very different design. It is different than any other board out there. Instead of the traditional bi-level this board has foam in between the two decks. This helps in a lot of ways. First it gives you more snap off the water when ollieing. Secondly the foam helps support the top deck so it won’t snap. It also really helps with landings by giving more cushion so that it absorbs the impact a lot more. The bottom deck is pretty much the traditional 3-stage rocker while the top deck is different. The concave is short and steep so there is a big flat spot your foot can fit in very comfortably. The concave is nice cause for flip tricks it flips super easy; your foot catches the side concave and the board just flips right over.
