Britain: Wakeboard Women Amber Wing & Nicola Butler Dominate Wakestock UK
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 of 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.
But the contest was only the beginning of the story.
The night raged on with World Class Talent, as (DJ) Calvin Harris, the All American Rejects and the Goldie Rocks got the massive crowds partying to the wee hours.
Stay tuned for a two-part webisode series on the Oakley rippers’ magical trip to the UK. Hitting the town in London and North Wales, cameras follow Nicola and Amber to local cable parks and historical landmarks in the UK capital.
Partnering with iWake.com – the Oakley chargers, joined by Haley Smith and Angelika Schriber, captured some awesome footage…coming soon.
