Daniel Butzerin writes wakeboard history with chill & ride .

It is hard to believe that it all began with a few wakeboarders 11 years ago. C&R has become the biggest boot riders  event in Europe for the last decade. 
Not only is it a great sport in event, it is also a time where the riders all party together untill the early hours of the morning. Hady Tunnissen  and his Team organized the 3 day event which was a great success.

The Afterparty was a great success  with sounds from DJ Teddy-O and B-Trix which went on till the early hours.


Sunday started with the Pro Women with last years winner Sian Hurst just managing to qualify. In the final Sian showed her class taking the win in the Pro Ladies. Charlotte Bryant and Aisling Deegan took second and third place. In the Pro Men 17 riders started, which was quickly narrowed down to 8 finalists. Sadly the weather changed for the worse, and the event had to be stopped for safety reasons.

The Judges used the scores from the quali runs to determine  the winner. David O’Coaimh took 1st place with Sam Carne  2nd, and US Pro Shawn Watson 3rd. Many spectators were still waiting in the hope that the competition will continue, but here was safety first, unfortunately, a safe race was no longer possible.

See you in 2016!
