“The event Wake the Goon which was proudly supported by Fox Racing South Africa and this saw some of SA’s most talented wakeskaters battle it out behind the winch for the R5,000 prize purse. La Mercy Lagoon made the scene for this event and the weather was cold and windy but this did not hold the riders back as they glided through the water busting aerial manouvers out of the man made pool and hitting some radical and technical manouvers off the rail to score maximum points.
We had 2x 45min jam sessions and the riders were scored on their lines. The top 2 riders from each heat progressed to the 45 minute final in which the riders best lines were judged to be crowned champion. In the end 2 of the finalists were tied for first and the judges had to go to a tie breaker to decide the champ and in the end it was Darren “Two-Step” Turner who snuck past Dylan Mitchell for the win and the R4,000 prize.
