Only a couple more days and it’s finally time for Romboso jam #4!
Get prepared for a day full of amazing riding and some major partying!
Once again the jam is taking place at the cable in Duisburg Wedau. The after party will be at Zebrastall Bar in downtown Duisburg.
This event already is legendary so make sure you’ve at least witnessed it once!

The Wedau locals have set up some new rails this year so there will be some new goodies. Also the former pool jam will be transferred to the Sesitec 2.0 system where Unit Parktech obstacles are waiting to be shredded.

In order to participate click the registration sheet below (to view in actual size), then download it. Once you’ve filled it out send or fax it back to Dennis Knasiak (contact info see registration sheet).

Hopefully see y’all there!!!

2010 Devotid Wakeskates and Union Winch Park Preview

Here are some news and pics about the 2010 wakeskate line by Devotid and the new Union park at Millington, MI.
Some improvements Devotid made for the new wakeskate line:

  • The waist of the concaves are a bit wider. 15.5-15.75
  • A beefier sidewall for cement ledge forgiveness.
  • The concaves outer perimeter is now thicker all the way around, which makes cutting at the wake more consistant and predictable.
  • Wider tip and tails for more back-foot realestate.
  • Die-cut screen-printed JESSUP griptape.
  • New Thicker and Stronger PBT base material.
  • Pre-marked drill spots for our new skate bump system.
Things Devotid did not change:
  • Birch/ Basswood layups
  • Slow cooked cold press lamination
  • Rock Solid H2o Adhesive
  • Hand shaped rider-influenced designs
  • Multi-coat High Gloss waterproof finishes

All information and pics are taken from the new Devotid website.
