Wakestock, harley Clifford,

Thousands of fans packed Millenium Park in Collingwood, Ontario to witness some of the best wakeboarders and wakeskaters in the world throw down thanks to the massive wake pumped out by the Monster Energy Ltd Edition Super Air Nautique G23 despite challenging conditions in Collingwood Harbour.

With stormy skies threatening the site all day the weather remained clear, albeit for a brief period on rain, the action was intense on the water all day long. First off the dock was the Pro Men’s Wakeskate and it was the defending and 5 time Wakestock champion, Brian Grubb posting the highest score of the day. It was a good day for the Canadians as well as James Balzer won his heat. Tommy Bailey and Dan Brown also advanced to ride in the semi-finals on Sunday.
