The US Wakeski Open is the final event of the Stereo Open Series, the US Wakeski Open will take place at Orlando Watersports Complex on October 22, 2011. A winner will be crowned for both the boat and cable disciplines. “OWC is one of very few locations in the US where we are able to run a boat and cable competition side-by-side, making it an ideal spot for this event,” says Stereo Wakeski Co. CEO and owner, Jens-Martin Johnsrud.
The very first wakeski competition in the US took place at OWC in September 2009 where Chad Buechler (USA) took home both titles. As defending champion, Chad is expected on the starting dock when the event kicks off, along with Ryan Jones, two-time European Wakeski Open champ Sebastien Coll, and 2011 Stereo EU Cable Jam winner Chris Böttcher.
“Riders are expected to master technical moves on both rails and kickers, as well as several air tricks, to take home the cable title; in the boat event, riders need to show the judges’ new tricks performed with height, technical difficulty and style,” said Stereo Wakeski co-owner and sales/marketing manager, Kristian Hvaara. “Stereo is still offering a $1,000 reward for the first 720 behind the boat, so this event would be the perfect place to do that.” stereoskis.com/
