Wakestock Abu Dhabi visitors today were treated to an unscheduled competition using the System 2.0 cable system.
Using the same heat groupings set out for the qualifying rounds of the boat contest, 20 riders were now competing for a cash prize put up for the three best tricks of the day.
Adam Errington launched the biggest air of the day with a super-smooth double S-bend to blind in choppy conditions. JD Webb not only landed a Pete Rose for the first time but also took away some spending money for his troubles, and the one and only Thai rider at the event, Padiwat Jaemjan, showed some true cable skills and style with his tail grab front flip to blind.
The main competition of Wakestock Abu Dhabi will start at 10 a.m. on Saturday, when all of the riders will gather on Al Sahil Beach to battle it out for the title of Wakestock Abu Dhabi 2010 champion.
Wakestock Abu Dhabi is the first stop of the World Wakeboarding Association’s 2010 World Wakeboarding Series.
