Wakeboarding enthusiasts and spectators from all over the east coast converged on Smith Mountain Lake this past weekend to participate in the 2008 Liquid Force BROstock fueled by Monster Energy.
Held at Crazy Horse Marina in partnership with WakeNSkate Board Shop, the 6th Annual Wakefest Wakeboarding Tournament went off in conjunction with Liquid Forces’s BROstock. The tournament took place on Saturday morning and contest winners were as follows:
Grom, Evan Dean; Women’s, Emylee Wright; Over-40, Ed Wagner; Wakeskate, Andrew Fortenberry; Intermediate, Ryan Thompson; Invert, Matt Kirk; and Outlaw, Brian Reeder.
Thanks to BROstock sponsors Monster Energy, Skull Candy, and Malibu boats for providing the entertainment and barbecue! Liquid Force product demonstrations and a team autograph session were highlights of the weekend as well.
Micah Gaudio, Owner of WakeNSkate Board Shop, said the tournament was the largest to date. “Having a tournament of this caliber at Smith Mountain Lake is very exciting, not to mention incredibly supportive of both the local economy and wake scene. We are thrilled to host such an influential event that gets better every year.”
