Abu Dhabi - Wakestock

One Friday, bbG, me and my Nikon D80 with Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 decided to go to the local beach ... and look what greeted us. Abu Dhabi Wakestock!

Wakestock Abu Dhabi represents the first stop on the prestigious 2010 WWA Wakeboard World Series as the sport's top 16 athletes compete off the shore of Al Sahil Beach for a share of the $50,000 prize and the title of Wakestock Abu Dhabi Champion 2010.

Superstar ... Aaron Rathy!

The world’s top 16 riders have already confirmed their participation in the event and will have a shot at walking away with the richest prize purse in the sport. Amongst the big name riders already confirmed to attend are current WWA World Series Champion Phillip Soven, WWA World Wakepark Champion Nick Davies, current US National Champion Adam Errington, current World Champion and King of Wake Champion Aaron Rathy, European Champion and four times Wakestock UK winner Dan Nott and wakeboarding legend Parks Bonifay. The competition will take place just off Abu Dhabi Public Beach on the Corniche and will feature three massive custom-built floating rails specifically designed for the event. The use of these rails combined with the calibre of talent in attendance already confirmed will provide an awe-inspiring spectacle, along with inspiration for residents and visitors alike to get involved in the fastest growing water sport in the world.
Etihad was a core sponsor ... As always!
