The 2017 Gloucester Tall Ships weekend will, for the very first time, see the awe inspiring aerial insanity that is the Industry Pro Wakeboard Tour. Now in it’s second year, the Gloucester Tall ships stop of the 2017 tour will see 30 plus of the very best of the UK and European wakeboarding talent taking to the dockland basin for the non stop frenetic action from the get go. with wakeboarding battles will play out over the Sunday and Monday of the festival weekend with initial group stages and then had to head “ride-offs” where the public will pay witness to unimaginable feats of skill and fearlessness. This riding will take the form of many a weird and wonderful tricks including but not limited to, such manoeuvres as Tantrums, Whirlybirds, Moby Dicks, Double Flips and many others besides which we’re sure to be engrossed by as the Industry Tour MC’s explain all, hype the crowd and get the riders even more pumped to go bigger, fast and harder. This year, the tour has grown something crazy with an extra stop and with over £15,000 of cash up for grabs over the course of the tour stop series so the riders are sure to be putting everything on the line to grab that cash. honours and cheers of the crowds!
We are just a little bit excited to have the wakeboarding fraternity joining this amazing weekend of water based entertainment and reckon that the riders are going to be new crowd favourties. Industry Wake Parks will be on site with their own stand not only selling a vast array of soft goods and wakeboarding hardware but also ready to explain all about the world of wakeboarding, their wake park installations across the country, how to get into the sport and whatever other questions you can throw at them.
