Wales is probably one of the last places you’d think about when it comes to Wakeboarding. But make no mistake, Wakestock UK was as big a Wake party as it gets. Dominated by Oakley stars Amber Wing and Nicola Butler, the rockin’ contest in Great Britain was nothing short of epic – with crowds of more than 10,000 fans lining the waters for the Finals. Taking the top spot in the Pool Gap Challenge and the Boat Finals – Nicola capped Team Oakley’s badass weekend by sealing Best Trick behind a System 2.0 with a nosepress 270 over the A-frame.
The 2010 Queen of Wake is looking to retake the crown. Oakley Wakeboard Star, Nicola Butler, powered back into title contention with a big victory at the Pro Wakeboard Tour stop in Monroe, Wash. – topping Melissa Marquardt with a 75.67 score in the Finals. The British-born ripper owned the competitive Women’s Pro Division with a sparkling run, lined with big airs and precision rail riding, all the way to the win.
