Wakeboarding with Smoke Flares and Flashes

Flares and Flashes.

After seeing Bruce Irons in a glowing barrel with flares strapped to his board, we’ve been dying to strap some onto a wakeboard. The only problem is at R250 a flare (that last 30 seconds) and a photographer sitting on a boat in pitch darkness, 200m away; the logistics become a night mare.

We headed to Blue Rock Cable Park with one of Cape Towns best Photographers, Bianca Asher and a Nice Budget from Liquid Force Cape Town and ofcourse some of the best cable riders in CT. Bianca Managed to get these amazing images in a very limited 1 hour window. We are all stoked with the outcome and the surreal experience.

Cape Town Cable wakeboarders: Craig Eygenberger, Gregor Reichmuth, Sky Keller, Graham Howes, Candice Bacon, Sean Bacon, Craig Howes, Hjalmar Larsen, Nick Cattelan,

After all it was a proper shot in the dark… literally

Monster Energy king of the rail comp

It was a busy weekend for the SA wakeboard community, with 2 huge rail events going down, The Bronks Rail Smash up in Joburg

and the Monster Energy King of The Rail – indoor wakeboard comp at the Cape Town International Boat Show.

Monster had a crazy set-up at in the Cape Town Convention Center, with the 1st indoor pool setup hosting a 16m Rooftop rail,

and a 15m A-Frame rail between 2 inflatable (shallow) pools.

As always we saw some of the best wakeboarders in SA throwing down some impressive tricks, and it turned out to be a fun jam session with a bunch of mates pushing their limits.

Lets hope to see some more demo’s like this around Cape Town this summer!

Winter Rail Sessions: Jason Colborne, Gregor & Dominik Reichmuth.

The South African wake scene definitely quiets down in the winter months, but the die-hards, the pro’s and the wannabe’s will be on the water come rain or shine.

Winter is wet, cold and windy, but perfect for them as it keeps the crowds away, which keeps the ques short and the water glassy; every riders dream. Here’s the latest video of Jason Colborne, Gregor & Dominik Reichmuth making the most of winter.

Winter Rail Sessions – 2012 from Jason Colborne on Vimeo.

“So I was injured all summer and finally got back onto the water during winter, been hitting allot of rails to get back into it. My sister and brother got cameras so I could finally film some of our shredding, so here is a little edit I put together of the footage we been taking at our local spot Blue Rock – South Africa.”
