First official Wakeboarding event in Montreal
For the very first time in Montreal, on September 4th and 5th, professional riders but also fans could enjoy a wakeboarding weekend event! For those of you unfamiliar with this discipline, it consists of a mix between water skiing, snowboarding and other surfing techniques. You can either be pulled by a mechanical system, as it is the case on the lake here or you can be pulled by a speedboat.
Not a drop of rain came to kill the vibe on that weekend! Only tricks and more tricks from all competitors! Falls of course, many of them even, but it’s just another day at the office for those guys and girls!
And if you were at the spot, then you might have been one of the lucky fans who got to try out wakeboarding for the first time!
Wakeboarding: The Immersive Experience
All I needed to make it work was a brave rider, one who would not fail to complete the practice run. He really made it look easy!
I have a couple versions of the 360 video:
• the Small Planet Experience
• the Immersive 360 Experience
In the Google Cardboards or Gear VR, it really gives the motivation to give it a try as it looks like a lot of fun!
Thanks to the guys of TTS, Parc Jean Drapeau and the organization of “Wake sur l’île” and I think we will see them again next year with some more surprises!
