    Cologne/Germany, June 18th 2011 German wonderboy Nico von Lerchenfeld wins in Cologne, upsetting fellow Liquid Force rider Shawn Watson and Keith Lidberg, who got second and third place. Von Lerchenfeld convinced the judges with two runs close to perfection. His first run included a snowboard inspired combo on the first gap, a huge melon air out of the quarterpipe and a switch toeside frontside 900 to top it off. When he hit his own signature obstacle in his second run, he did a perfectly executed backside 270 to switch noseslide and secured the win in this years OʼNeill Wake The Line edition. Shawn Watson proved to be the most consistent rider, laying down top level runs all evening including his signature move, an olé toeside 540. Third place went to Keith Lidberg, who showed excellent riding all evening but couldnʼt maintain the same consistency as his opponents. For the wakeskating part, 13 year old Daniel Grant from Thailand amazed everyone when he first hit the course. He quickly turned from a little Asian kid into an extremely consistent wakeskating machine, putting pressure on big names such as Nick Taylor (USA) and Leo Labadens (FRA). In his final run, Grant exploded and laid down the best line of the day, topping it off with a clean heelside frontside 540. Second place went to last years winner Jan Kissmann from Germany, who got followed by Andy Kolb, also from Germany. Edit by: Simm/Mainberger www.waketheline.com

I also have no legal right to use Kolb's artwork, and he did not help me in any way besides drawing these for his personal use. I took his art and digitally cut it apart from the PDF on his website. That being said, This is a non-profit project After seeing Kolb's "Space Book" on his site a month or so ago, I emailed him and asked if I could animate his art. I had just finished up a free-lance position, and didn't want my skills to get dull; being a Bowie fan all my life, his art really excited me. So here you have it; My contribution to the Major Tom Phenomena. Thanks again to Andrew Kolb for the art. Programs Used: After Effects CS4, PhotoShop CS4, FCP7

        Song: Peaches - A.Skillz & Krafty Kuts - Finger Lickin´ Cologne / Germany, 2. June 2012 The Spectacular “O’Neill Wake The Line presented by Relentless Energy Drink” Wakeboard event stunned the 8000 strong crowd under a burning hot sun at the incredible setting of sold out Stadionbad Cologne. The atmosphere throughout was thick with tension from the awe inspiring head to head format and the brand new, extremely technical and demanding set-up created by UNIT Parktech yet again. Featuring the Tech-Series as well the new and improved stair set, the abilities of the riders were pushed to the limit throughout the day, every one of them raising their game round by round. Year on year the level of boarding and skating pushes further ahead and this year’s event was no exception. Bigger airs out of the much bigger quarter pipe, presses in every direction, bigger and more technical rotations on to and off rails not to mention several double flips going down alongside a whole host of 900s. Wakeboard: 1. Raph Derome 2. Kevin Henshaw 3. Steffen Vollert Wakeskate: 1. Daniel Grant 2. Lukas Suess 3. Jan Kissmann waketheline.com Videoedit: Simm/Mainberger Additional Camera: Bernie Schinn

                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.

                    Cologne / Germany, 2. June 2012 The Spectacular “O’Neill Wake The Line presented by Relentless Energy Drink” (www.waketheline.com) Wakeboard event stunned the 8000 strong crowd under a burning hot sun at the incredible setting of sold out Stadionbad Cologne. The atmosphere throughout was thick with tension from the awe inspiring head to head format and the brand new, extremely technical and demanding set-up created by UNIT Parktech (www.unit-parktech.com) yet again. Featuring the Tech-Series as well the new and improved stair set, the abilities of the riders were pushed to the limit throughout the day, every one of them raising their game round by round. Year on year the level of boarding and skating pushes further ahead and this year’s event was no exception. Bigger airs out of the much bigger quarter pipe, presses in every direction, bigger and more technical rotations on to and off rails not to mention several double flips going down alongside a whole host of 900s. With many new faces in the line-up because of the new qualifying series of events held in the US and Europe, the big names were under a lot more pressure. Reigning champion Nico Von Lerchenfeld, succumbed to this pressure in the second round of head to heads against fellow UNIT Parktech rider Steffen Vollert, who made it through the Langenfeld qualifier to squeeze ahead of Nico, into the Super Final and secure a third place finish. It was the Raph Derome Show all the way through though, with not a single waiver in any round. Doubles, 900s and some of the most insanely technical and tweaked out rail hits ever witnessed. Seasoned O’Neill Wake The Line competitor and more than capable rail rider, Kevin Henshaw pulled out a run that under any other circumstances would have run away with a clear win, but this time securing him second place at arguably the most closely fought WTL in it’s 5 year history. Not to be outdone, the huge Stadionbad crowd were left with their jaws on the floor with the wakeskate superfinal, Daniel Grant, retaining his title to yet again prove he is the man of the moment when it comes to skate. RESUL TS: Wakeboard: 1. Raph Derome (CAN) 2. Kevin Henshaw (CAN) 3. Steffen Vollert (GER) Wakeskate: 1. Daniel Grant (THA) 2. Lukas Suess (GER) 3. Jan Kissmann (GER)
