CHILL AND RIDE 2014: WAKEBOARD-PRO SAM CARNE GOES FOR GOLD

Ein Wochenende voller Überraschungen! Zum zehnjährigen Jubiläum von Chill and Ride waren eher Hoodies, statt Bikini und Boardshorts angesagt. Doch nicht nur das kalte Wetter überraschte die Besucher und Rider. In diesem Jahr gab es nach David O’Caoimhs dreijähriger Siegesserie einen neuen Gewinner, mit dem erst keiner gerechnet hatte: Sam Carne

Last weekend was the beginning of a new chapter: The British wakeboarder Sam Carne won the Chill and Ride pro men contest. Many riders put him under pressure and even the jury didn’t expect such a tight match. His opposition was very strong – especially with his buddy David O’Caoimh in the line up. Over the last years David O’Caoimh had a steady hand on the title. But this year one showed even better tricks and style at “Chill and Ride powered by Nissan”, Europe’s biggest wakeboard boat event: Sam Carne.

Discovering a new way of wakeboarding

There is only one thing which is even better than to go shredding behind a brand new motorboat like a Mastercraft or Malibu. And I’m not talking about just another wakeboard boat. See for yourself in this epic video: It’s wakeboarding with a backhoe. Even though it’s an ad, I wanted to show it to you. It’s just awesome. Now who’s got a backhoe to go wakeboarding?

Es gibt nur eine Sache, die noch besser ist, als mit einer brandneuen Mastercraft oder Malibu und ein paar Freunden Shredden zu gehen. Und damit ist nicht etwa ein anderes Motorboot gemeint. Seht selbst ist diesem Video: Wakeboarden mit einem Bagger. Obwohl es ein Werbeclip ist, wollte ich euch diese kreative Idee und das Video nicht vorenthalten. Macht auf jeden Fall Lust auf Wakeboarden. Wo wir gleich bei der wichtigsten Frage wären: Wer von euch hat einen Bagger um Wakeboarden zu gehn?
