Our 12th annual wake and music festival here at TSR Texas Ski Ranch was a HUGE success! Cablestock has always been a great way to kick start the summer, and this year was better than ever! We had riders and spectators from all over the world come join us- including Australia, London, and all over the states!- and everyone made it a weekend to remember!
Thursday afternoon started off with all qualifying events for Amateur riding events, including traditional cable, features only, and boat divisions, along with the big air kicker comp- which was absolutely awesome to watch! Those riders really know how to shred hard, and “big air” is definitely what they gave us. Daniel Grant came out on top of the podium for his hangtime, style, and difficulty off the kicker, followed by Yonel Cohen in 2nd, with Thomas Elwood claiming 3rd. That evening the premiere showing of The Debut by Liquid Force was shown up in Wahoo’s, where everyone was able to meet and talk to the stars of the film, followed by an epic performance by Collin Gee!
Friday brought with it nothing but excitement- everything from the rider’s skills to the weather! The Pro Qualifying events ran smoothly, along with other fun activities such as our SUP races, “ride the rooftop”, and others! The evening finished up with a fantastic concert performed by two memorable texas country bands- Driver River Religion and Midnight River Choir- a big thanks to both groups for awesome evening entertainment!
Saturday was full of fun and entertainment from our riders who qualified for finals in both the Amateur and Pro divisions, along with a final round of SUP races and “ride the rooftop” throughout the day. Throughout the evening guests out on the beach were continuously entertained with the Redbull DJ Play and Destroy, which was dominated by DJ Brad Satterlee, and to top everything off, our annual bikini contest and award presentation!
We would once again like to send out a huge thank you to everyone who helped make the event a success- It would not have been possible without our sponsors- including Axis Wake Research, Liquid Force, Malibu Boats, Spy, Body Glove, Polaroid Action, Burton, iwake.com, Hydrotunes, and Unit Parktech- the vendors who came out, the TSR staff, the competitors, and everyone who came to enjoy the event! Thanks again to everyone involved and can't wait to see you next year!
