The 10th anniversary of Wakestock, one of the most storied contests in the sport of wakeboarding and wakeskating, took over Toronto Island last week.

As rail finalist and two-time World Champion Andrew Adkison of Oakley put it, “The Billabong Pro [Railslide] at Wakestock is essentially the world championships of wakeboard rail riding.” Oakley’s Aaron Rathy combined perfected technique and smooth style to take second. Rathy also took third in the Billabong Pro Wakeskate.

The Malibu Boats Expression Session came down to Soven vs Jeff Weatherall and Rusty Malinoski vs Andrew Adkison. In one of the closest duels of the contest, Adkison edged out Malinoski, the reigning WWA World Series champ, but took second to Soven. On the women’s side, Oakley’s Amber Wing brought the win home.
