A SPECIALLY DESIGNED 40 METER WAKEBOARDING POOL, SKATE PARK AND SOME OF THE BEST MUSICIANS AND ATHLETES FROM ACROSS SE ASIA - THIS WAS THE SCENE LAST WEEKEND FOR THE FIRST EDITION OF THE RIP CURL WAKE, SKATE AND MUSIC FESTIVAL IN JAKARTA, INDONESIA.
Shoppers at Kota Kasablanka Mall in South Jakarta were treated to an incredible show of Extreme Sports, Music and Fashion over 2 days in what was one of the best ever Live performances seen in the heart of Jakarta putting smiles on the faces of thousands of fans.
Wakeboard World Champion Daniel Grant (Thailand) along with a group of international riders including Indonesia’s best talents, blasted massive tricks across rails and obstacles in the 40 meter purpose-built pool pulled by a winch. Highlights of Wakeboarding included 2 VESPA Motorbikes and one giant beach ball being jumped by Daniel Grant.
Grant commented: "I’ve Winched a lot of pools similar to this size but this set-up Rip Curl has created is defiantly the most challenging because we have to jump over the 5-meter gap with limited run-up. Its unreal to be able to bring my bag of tricks to Jakarta and introduce the sport of Wakeboarding to huge crowds like this, its not often people get to be so close to the action."
After an epic weekend of the best action and a tough battle with all the riders wowing a huge crowd at Kota Kasablanka Mall, judges decided the eventual winner was Daniel Grant for all 3 divisions proving why he is current World Cable Park Champion!
