Liquid Force South Africa celebrates their 10th birthday with Ticket 2 Ride!
Liquid Force South Africa is celebrating its 10th birthday by hosting the “Ticket 2 Ride” event at StokeCity Extreme Sports Park in Midrand on the 2nd of November, 2013. The event is their gift back to their loyal fans, supporters and customers for the most incredible last 10 years filled with awesome times and memories. If you haven’t guessed it, “Ticket 2 Ride” essentially means that once you’ve purchased your R50 gate ticket, you are permitted to ride practically all day, for free!
The idea is to give away free time on the water so everyone can have the opportunity of experiencing the fast growing phenomena that is cable wakeboarding and wakeskating. Liquid Force SA is teaming up with the best of local and international wakeboarders who will be on hand to offer riding and setup advice to everyone – both old and new to the sport.
Everyone will have the opportunity to ride for FREE from 08h00-12h00 and 14h00-18h00. There will be several Liquid Force global team riders on-site giving pointers, hanging out, and signing autographs. It’s set to be a chilled, comfortable, and nonintimidating environment that is fun for the first timer as well as the seasoned wakeboarder. All you need to do is pitch up with a pair of boardshorts and sunscreen and your time on the water will be taken care of by the pros. So, if you’ve always wanted to try your hand at wakeboarding, this is your opportunity – riding time, supplied gear, and professional coaching – all mahala! The cable system can pull up to nine riders simultaneously.
The overhead cable system runs in a continuous counter-clockwise motion allowing riders to enjoy a non-stop watersports adventure. When a rider falls, it’s only a quick swim to shore and a walk back to the dock and you’re in line again ready for another go! Of course the day wouldn’t be complete without those pro riders being pitted against the best SA has to offer. So, between 12h00 and 14h00, crowds will be enthralled and entertained by a unique contest format never seen before in South Africa. The format will see local and international wakeboarders and wakeskaters laying it down in a two-hour shred fest! The contest will challenge the riders to the max and will see them pushing the limits to new levels. All tricks will be done near the shore for maximum spectator entertainment. This is definitely not to be missed!
Apart from free riding time and the showcasing of some of the world’s greatest wakeboarding talent, there will be some of SA’s top as well as up-andcoming FMX riders thrilling crowds at Alastair Sayer’s FMX compound. This is sure to be hair-raising stuff and will, without doubt, draw huge crowd support, so make sure you don’t miss out! No party is complete without the beats and at Ticket 2 Ride you’ll have none other than 5FM’s top DJs spinning the decks. And, should you run low on energy or would like to quench a wakeboarding-induced thirst, Red Bull will be on call to provide refreshments.
