For Your Sunny-day Pleasure: Waterskiing's Insane Little Brother, Wakeboarding
If you've picked up our August issue ("The Water Issue"), you already know that there are now multiple ways to get dragged around behind a boat. Waterskiing too tame? Get airborne (and possibily inverted!) on a wakeboard. Or just watch other people do it.
The dudes at Hyperlite are "totally stoked" to announce a world-class wakeboard demo, today (Thursday) at 3 p.m. on Lake Washington (at Genessee Park's southern end; 4316 South Genesee St.). It's a trick/stunt display, and a preview to the weekend-long Seafair wakeboard competition. Events run Friday-Sunday; get the schedule and other details here.
