The 3rd Stop of the Ultrasport Demo Day tour took us up the M1 to Boxend Park. The crew at boxend welcomed Matty C, CK Koester, Lee Debuse, Jack Hamersley, Keiran Owens and Joey Battleday too their wonderful park!
We had all the 2013 OBrien and Liquid Force gear for demos and it was a great day for all! They were even unveiling their new Liquid Force step down rail for us!
One day last summer CK Koester and Scotty Broome found themselves on a dealer day for their sponsors which happened to land on the same day..They thought it was appropriate to grab the camera, cool off and take a few laps of round the cable in Toulouse, France.
A week or so ago Ollie from The Quayside wakeboard club asked if a few of us wanted to have a little ride on the System2.0 they have there. They had the first Britsih @.0 and its going strong, it was a typical Aprils day beautiful sun followed immediately by torrential rain. But non the less myself, Matt Crowhurst, Ollie Huntsman, Jack Hammersly, Adam May and Mark Molinaro prevailed and rode the weather. Contours and 7d’s made this video happen!
Heres a video that basically sums the day up enjoy…..
The first edition of our All Skate features at J23 is finally here. Ollie Moore our resident skater dude Ambassador not only holds down the fort on the wakeskating side of the crew but he also looks damn good doing it!
Welcome to All Skate 1.1
Ollie Moore recently just spent 3 weeks out in Turkey after having a knee clean up in December. He headed over there for some pre-season riding and to get back into the swing of things. You would have no idea that he has been off the water for 5 months watching this edit though. Also sporting a new deck from Southern Wakeskates. 2013 is heating up…..well in Turkey it is anyway.
Fresh faced James Harrington and some of the Swedish crew also rode for the cameras.
Welcome too the second instalment of Junction23′s Laps feature.
This time we were right in the heart of London at Wakeup Docklands, dont be fooled by the sun in the video it was bloody cold and it even snowed! For this episode of Laps myself, Scotty Broome and Toby Yeo invite you to watch and enjoy . . . .
The final Ambassador to be introduced to the Junction 23 Ambassador series, goes by the name of Scotty Broome. Currently residing in the capital of the UK, he has brought his lax style and good vibes to sample some of what the UK has to offer.
Small print: Banging System 2 setups, friendly people, festival season, London canal systems, full suits, fish & chips, good surf and warm coffee on the boat in the mornings.
Join Scotty in his living room in London and find out a little bit more about this 6’3 Australian globe trotter.
By now, I hope you all understand what we’re trying to do at Junction23 if not get your’e backside over to the site and find out for yourself. This is the 1st addition of a new chapter in the ever opening book that is J23, a little something known as LAPS. It will be a regular feature on our site with one of our talented riders taking his personell waterproof camera too the lake and filming a set with whoever he happens to be riding with. In this case it was Me with my lovely Contour +2 at JBSki accompanied by Louis Floyd and current IWWF world #2 Dec Clifford. Unfortunately it is still blooming freezing in the UK and the air temperature must have been soaring at a wonderful 3 degrees C!! (yeh I know stupid)
Anyway here is the outcome of our little stint round the stunt pond, Enjoy……
Over the last few years there has been a huge boom in cable riding and especially two tower systems. Industry Wakeparks are at the forefront of all this here in the UK.
The last two and a quarter years Tim Woodhead and James Hackney have been on a tireless mission to make wakeboarding more accessible to the general public and to bring the sport to the masses. Inner city wake parks have now been built in London, Manchester, Ireland and soon to be Liverpool. Junction 23 are huge believers in what Industry are doing and thought it was about time you guys could have a look in to the lives of the guys growing the sport day by day.
In this episode of Industry Insider we take you behind the scenes of the new wakepark in Manchester which is located at Salford Quays water-sports centre and we also head over toBlackpool wake park to break in their newly installed rails.
Its been bloody cold this year, but most of the cables have stayed open all winter. One of those cables is Liquid Wakepark, which has its fair share of nut jobs who can’t get enough of riding. I decided enough was enough in early December and didn’t start up again till March but some people just couldn’t stop. Our friends at Hybrid Wake Mag managed to capture quite a lot of the madness and have named it all “Brass Monkeys”
Theres a couple of nice shots of me from early December check it out and enjoy!
