After a 2 year break The London Night Jump made an epic return at Liquid Leisure this bank holiday weekend. The cable park was filled with spectators & riders from across the globe. The Plastic Playground & King of Vert competition combined with the notorious London Night Jump event produced the biggest & best competition to date.

Saturday kicked off with the Road to Red Bull competition for the junior riders, an event for the younger riders to showcase their talents. Sunday was the day of the Pro’s with the Plastic Playground playing host to the worlds best cable riders. With 16 obstacles strategically placed in the cable park their was no room for error in the hardcore Plastic Playground course. With $5,000 up for grabs for the winner, the pressure was on… With fantastic riding from all, it came down to just one, taking the win was 15 year old Yonel Cohen. The entertainment didn’t stop their, up next was the King Of Vert Competition with riders hitting the Quarter Pipe. The event drew a large crowd & the riders certainly gave their all smashing some seriously sick moves. Taking the title in this premier event was Nico Von lerchenfeld.    As the daytime events drew to an end it was time to focus on the notorious London Night Jump. This years event was sponsored by Nautique, Thomas Bates & Todd Marquardt representing Nautique, joined us from the US for the weekend & it was now our turn to showcase the Ski Nautique 200 pulling the worlds best jumpers in the Nautique Night Jump event. As the crowds grew in anticipation of this awesome event, the riders prepared themselves to hit the jump at just over 43 mph all set in the darkness of the Liquid leisure wakelake, to gain the Nautique London Night Jump Title. The stunning 200 Ski Nautique took pride of place in the water, the spectators poured into every corner to ensure the moment was captured….As the first jumper took position on the dock the atmosphere was buzzing, it certainly was an event not to be missed. With each rider getting 3 tows in an attempt to jump the furthest they certainly put on a unforgettable competition. With final jumps recording between 49.7 mtrs & the winning jump of 66.3 mtrs seeing Freddy Krueger once again earning himself yet another Night Jump title.
