LDB Wakeschool plays host to stop 1 of the 2014 AOD Tour

5D3_5296
In the words of LDB
Stop one of the AOD came around super fast this year with an amazing start to the season. For a change at this point in the year, the weather was great and this meant for lots of activity at LDB Wakeschool, getting booked up with all those looking to enter our 2014 AOD series for practice way in advance. With 40 plus entrants we were set to have as hectic a first stop as always.
A 7am start for me with the usual event obligations of branding the whole for the many awesome sponsors we have backing us again this year and although slightly windy, the sun was which meant for a great atmosphere as contest time neared.
There were riders turning up from all over the country looking to not only take the honours from this first stop but also secure themselves some ranking points for the UK Wake Series which is now a staple part of the UK boat contest scene. With four AOD stops in total, the Ryan Birch event, Rookie Rider league and of course Loch Stock contests, there’s now more events than ever for boat rippers of all ages and abilities to get stuck into the contest scene.
With Elliot Newman on the mic as usual, keeping riders, parents and spectators, the contest kicked off at 1 with the youngsters who were all showing the older riders at thing or two straight from the get go! Thrills a spills a plenty, the AOD 2014 got going in fine style. It’s actually kind of hard to mention all the riding highlights suffice to say there were a lot and the level of wakeboarding has stepped up yet again. All this will become very clear come the release of the AOD Stop 1 edit to be released the soon.
