WE WANT YOUR VIDEO!Show us what you’ve got!

We are looking for Ireland’s best wakeboarding edit — so get your camera out and shoot some wakeboarding action! On your own or team up with your mates, there’s no limit to your creativity, only 2 rules apply:

The subject has to be wakeboarding (obviously!) and the edit can be a maximum of 3:30 minutes long. Anything else is entirely up to you.

Deadline for submissions is midnight on the 31st August.

We will choose the best edit and the winner will be announced at the Grassroots Tour after party on the 5th of September.

Any questions, just get in touch!

Happy filming,
Nina & Colin

Here’s some more info on the format and categories:

Format of the tour:

Each Grass Roots event is held over a full day and kicks off at about 9 or 10am. Until mid afternoon it is free riding on the Sesitec cables with a few pro demos mixed in and pro coaching on hand to help improve rider’s skills. All the people who enter are encouraged to ride as much as possible all morning. Once mid afternoon comes all the riders get split into various divisions and the comp starts. In the comp each rider gets 3 passes with unlimited falls to impress the judges. The divisions are aimed at the first timer to the seasoned pro.

There are loads of prizes to hand out and there is an official prize giving after each competition finishes.

Here is a break down of the divisions:

Men’s Rookies

– This division is aimed for riders who have just started out in the sport
– If you learned to ride last week then you could enter the Rookies division this week!
– Any tricks up to and including 360’s are allowed in this division
– If you can spin 540’s along an obstacle or off a kicker then we’ll see you later, you’re in Intermediates!
– If you can back lip or front board the obstacles then you too are off to the Intermediates
– Definitely no air tricks, that’s cheating at this level!

Men’s Intermediate

– Love wakeboarding, ride loads, but your not a pro? Then this division is for you.
– Tricks that are welcome in this division include: – Air tricks up to and including backrolls, raleys and roll to reverts
– Frontside 540’s and basic inverts like Tantrums, Scarecrows, Roll to Reverts off the kicker
– Obstacle tricks like ollie 270 onto a rail, ollie on backside lipslide, tail presses, nose presses etc

Men’s Open

– If you’re sponsored then you’re in this division
– If you want to be sponsored then you need to be in this division!
– If you’ve won intermediate events before then you too are in Open Mens, so step up your game!

Ladies Rookies

– This is for the ladies who have just started out in the sport
– Any tricks allowed up to but not including 360’s
– If you can spin 360’s along rails or on kickers then we’ll see you later, you moving up to open

Ladies Open

– This is for the ladies who love to ride
– If you can backside lipslide or front board the rails then you need to be here
