SA’s Only Cable Wakeboarding Festival Returns


StokeCity WakePark, in Midrand, Gauteng will once again play host to South Africa’s only Cable Wakeboarding Festival, Ticket2Ride, on the 19th of March. The only Cable WakeboardingPark in Gauteng, will be the stage for insane wakeboarding by some of the best local and international wakeboarders.

Ticket2Ride 2016, presented by LiquidForce South Africa and Hyperlite Wake SA is an action packed experience for those with a taste for extreme sports and adventure.

Spectators will be able to experience the thrill of cable wakeboarding first-hand, as well as see athletes showcase their skills and perform stunts in the Big-Air Kicker contest.  This is where wakeboarders have to hit an obstacle in the water, called a kicker, and then perform various spins and tricks as they are boosted into the air.

3 x World Champion, Nick Davies from the United Kingdom  and Raph Derome from Canada, who is arguably the worlds top rail rider, will face-off against the best SA has to offer in this unique, entertaining contest format.

“Festival goers can expect a fun-filled day out with endless wakeboarding, and a chance to witness the best in cable wakeboarding,” said PR and Promotions Manager, Chantal Holtzhauzen. ““In addition to the finest local and international competitors, we are also securing an entertainment lineup featuring top DJs and various give-aways to keep visitors entertained during the day.  We guarantee that you will leave stoked.

Amped Distributors owner and founder, Kyle Holtzhauzen, local distributor for LiquidForce and Hyperlite said: “We are really stoked to once again bring some of the world’s top names out to South Africa, and to showcase the local talent we have.”

Your Cable Pass will get you the opportunity to wakeboard free of charge for the whole day alongside the best in the BUSINESS!  It’s a chilled, relaxed, and non-intimidating environment that is fun for the first timer or the seasoned Wakeboarder. The PRO’s will be on the dock throughout the day to give tips,sign autographs and spread the stoke!
