Monster Energy Wake Tour: Part 1 Center of Gravity

Posted: Aug 23, 2012

In its first year at Center of Gravity festival in Kelowna, BC, Monster Energy brought out some of its big guns. Yelawolf, Bloody Beetroots and Mat the Alien joined headliners Nero and Lupe Fiasco as well as a massive lineup of musicians to play to a crowd of 8000 fans over two days. In the Okanagan heat the crowds were treated to some of the world's best.

Meanwhile Monster Energy Wakeboard team rider Kevin Henshaw brought his "System 2.0" Cable to the beach for a demo setup that was a first of its kind in Canada. The 2.0 system allows wakeboarders to hit features multiple times within feet of the fans, offering spectators a closer view than ever before. Unfortunately for Henshaw, being a few weeks out of knee surgery he would be sitting this one out to judge.

That didn't stop Monster Energy team riders Dustin O'Ferrall, Shane Bonifay, James Balzer, and Bob Soven from tearing the mini cable park a new one though. Though the setup wasn't ideal for wakeskating James Balzer brought his A Game and impressed the crowd with his combinations of shuvits and boardslides.

Dustin and Shane were two of the very few to work the wallride and in classic Bonifay fashion, when the money was on the line he took it up a notch and walked away with the cheque both days. Dustin's style and power got him to the finals and made him first in the eyes of the crowd, and Bob overcame a nagging injury to put in solid performances all weekend long.

Over at FMX, Kris Foster shook off a crash earlier in the weekend to come back and wow the crowd with his arsenal of Freestyle moves. Stay tuned for the Kris Foster webisode this fall from Monster Energy.

Of course the crowd was happy to run into the famous Monster Girls all weekend long as they checked out the bikini contest, volleyball, skateboarding and dirt jumping. With the basketball tournament, BMX, DJs and food, there is almost too much to take in at Center of Gravity, and Monster Energy fuels it all!
