Grand Rapids Gets Ready for Wake Wars 2011!

I never pass up the opportunity to chat with cute boys, and with Wake Wars getting set up down stairs in the BOB parking lot, I had to go see what was going on! If you haven't heard, we are bringing you Wake Wars 2011, July 16-17, on the parking lot of The B.O.B. in downtown Grand Rapids! We've got professional, advanced and amateur wakeboarders and wakeskaters, the riders will be thrust through a 20’ wide x 40’ long take-off pool via a motorized winch system, just as if they were being pulled by a boat, where they will launch into the air showcasing their best tricks before landing in a 40’ wide x 90’ long splash pool.
