Anon Wakesurf Invitational

Apologies for the lack of updates recently – anyone would think we spent Monday afternoons watching Andy Murray at Wimbledon. In fact we’ve had much more urgent and important things to do, such as ditching the office for a spot of wakesurfing. Mwah ha ha ha ha ha…

The inaugural Anon Wakesurf Invitational took place at the Princes Club lake in deepest darkest Feltham yesterday (basically, turn left just before a jumbo lands on your head at Heathrow). The idea was to pit two snowboarders, two surfers and two skaters against each other to prove once and for all… well I’m not sure what it was supposed to prove but it was a nice excuse for a barbecue and a giggle.

Wakesurfing is essentially like wakeboarding, only the board doesn’t have any bindings and the boat is ballasted in one corner to produce a standing wave behind it. Once you’re standing up you can ditch the rope and surf along within high five distance of your heckling mates on the boat. In short, it’s bloody brilliant.

The day began with everyone giving it a go….

Jo Chastney, ripping it up

Sparrow Knox a.k.a. Mowgli.

Little Will – the look on his face says it all!

Tom West – via con dios bra!

Then in the afternoon the competition began in earnest. Anon/Analog gathered six riders from their skate, surf and snow teams and each pair took turns behind the boat. Points would be awarded for length of ride, riding sans rope, plus any other radical manoeuvres.

Let battle commence!

First up were the snowboarders…

Little T – Ex-President…

Chris Kightley – Young, dumb, full o’ cum

David Hasselhoff eat your heart out!

Next came the surfers…

Laid back in the brown room.

High five? Surely he should be hanging five…

He’s just showing off now.

Stepping off the board and onto the boat – and the crowd go wild…


And last but not least we have the skaters…

Check out the classic skater tan…

Makes it look effortless doesn’t he?

Tom Knox, “spreading the stoke”

All that was left was to award the prizes. Surprise surprise, the surfers won – I think the clue was in the name really wasn’t it? 2nd place went to the snowboarders, while the wooden spoon was reserved for those skate punks. See, everyone knows skating is a piece of piss.

Spraying the old lemonade…

Check out the trophies – three Kryton heads!

Until the next time… hang loose!
