Kevin Henshaw: "Steffen picked me up at the airport. As soon as we got in the car he told me we got 3000 kilometers or more to drive. We went straight to Cergy. That park is insane they got like nine UNIT Rails including Steffen's and my Signature Rail. Then we drove all the way to Germany to a park called Norderstedt. They got my Signature Rail as well as a couple of other UNIT features. Next we went to The Bricks in Duisburg and now we are kickin' it in Moncontour/France."
Thanks to Wasserski Norderstedt, Anne and Christian Rumpel for the great support. Thanks to Raphael Ficarelli and Rémi Smadja from Moncontour for the great BBQ and thanks to Thierry Calais and José Frade Cergy for the early morning sessions!
Holy shit..... Without making much ado about their Cable Park, Cergy is definitly top 5 in the world. No wonder that local kids like Antoine Allaux play in the upper league of Wakeboarding. Even the selection of rail features show their steez on rails. Kicker, Henshaw Signature, Vollert Signature, Rooftop Funbox, Pipe Rail, Olli Box and Incline are waiting for obstacle hitters. The fact, that the cable is close to Paris international airport makes it even more attractive for international wakeboard travels. But even when the cable is located 20 minutes outside of Paris the scenery is all nature.
Hamburg WAS GEHT? (whats up?) Nick Lewis, Bernhard Hinterberger and Tom Richter did it first, the brand new Wakeboard Cable Park in Hamburg/Norderstedt. This is gonna be the place to be for all shred heads loacated in northern Germany.
Rebuild from the "Bricks" of the historical cable park Duisburg-Wedau/Germany the new place to be for all european wakeboarders is now in busyness. 30 years ago one son of the Suess family, Konny Suess moved from Langenfeld up north to open his own waterski location. Now a days Konny's children have a massive influence there and just made Wakeboarders heaven reality. The last 2 years the men with the plan Lukas and Sebi Suess went extraordinary ways and took tough decisions. The result is a technical and esthetical up to date cable park with an awesome mixture of rails and kickers. UNIT Parktech was one more main supplier and consultant for all rail and kicker decisions. Thanks to "The Bricks" the future for cable wakeboarding is bright. Go to facebook.com/pages/the-Bricks/327794480576870?ref=ts
