2011 Ryan & Tony Birch Memorial Big Air Competition

In 2008 the 1st Tony and Ryan competition was held at Chasewater Ski Club in loving memory of two very special people, Ryan & Tony Birch who were tragically killed in 2007 in an aircraft accident. Both family and friends were compelled to share a time to remember two very special people who they all lost from their lives. For the love, devotion and dedication that Ryan had for wakeboarding, it was decided that the most fitting memorial for Ryan and his dad would be to hold a wakeboard competition.

Each year the competition has grown in numbers both entrants and spectators. Due to the continual works at Chasewater this years competition is again being held at the West Midlands Water Ski Centre . Following the change in venue last year, it was decided to make the 2010 comp a one day event. This year we are taking up the whole weekend!!!!!!!! This years comp is being made even bigger!!!!!

Friday 16th September is practise day, a great day for a sneaky peak at the entrants to the comp

Saturday 17th September is a day not to be missed with The Relentless Pro Tour!! Riders Matt Crowhurst, Dan Nott Jonty Green, Sam Carne, James Young, Freddie Carter, Kurt Graham, James Hooper,  and not to forget our sponsored rider Edd Blundell who was invited to ride at this years event, will all be there riding behind the 210 Super Air supplied by and drove by the Midlands Nautique boys. Following this action packed day of riding, The Big Air Floodlit Kicker Competition will be held outside the waterfront bar, another fantastic event which is a must see, to add to the atmosphere a live bands will be playing, with the waterfront serving a few cold ones and food served at the barbecue.
