New to this year's Red Bull Wake Open was the Big Air set-up that was very hard to miss. Rather than a kicker to a flat water landing, UNIT built a massive landing ramp to stomp tricks thrown off of a larger kicker. The sheer size of this set-up is something that is hard to comprehend in watching the highlights. Bob Soven took the victory with a huge indy poked backside 720 landing towards the end of the ramp.
