Rockstar Wake Jam – Day One Heavy Wake Action Goes Off At The Hippodrome

For Immediate Release

33 of the world’s best wakeskaters charged the huge Malibu boat wake today at stop number three on the Byerly Toe Jam Tour, The Hippodrome / Rockstar Wake Jam. Glassy conditions and sunny skies set the stage at Koppert Lake in Toledo, Washington for an epic day of wakeskating.

Riders and their friends were enjoying the laid back, heady camping Hippodrome vibe set in motion last year by founders Silas Thurman and Colin Wright. Rockstar Energy Drinks were flowing and several wakeskaters completely killed it.

Notable moves were Brandon Thomas’ re-entry 360 shove, Nick Taylor’s toeside backside 180 and backside 360, Brian Grubb’s smooth backside 180 and shove-indy, Scott Byerly’s re-entry 360 shove, Stuart Shinn’s big heelside 360 and some nice kickflips by Ryan Doyle and Silas Thurman. Thurman was glad to ride well and was happy with today’s events, “This was the best wake riding we’ve seen this year in the Northwest and that was only the semifinals.”

As the team manager for Nike 6.0, Thurman is anxiously awaiting tomorrow’s main event, the Nike 6.0 Winch Jam, where today’s 33 riders get to throw down for “Best Trick” down the four stair, two hubba pool-to-pool gap.

Known as the most important event series in the sport of wakeskating, the Byerly Toe Jam is in full swing and the wakeskaters are psyched to have their own tour. So much progressive riding has been going down this year, and the Toe Jam has been able to showcase a great portion of it. For more, go to:

Supporting this leg of the tour is presenting sponsor Rockstar Energy Drink, plus Malibu Boats, Nike 6.0, Billabong and Byerly Boards. Special thanks to Active Water Sports for all their help as well.
