Just wrapped up the first round of the Liquid Force Australian Rail Series at Bli Bli on the Sunshine Coast. I love riding at Bli Bli and it was a huge crowd of over 100 riders in attendance.
I thought I was riding well and I won my heat qualifying me first place into the 10 man final, but a couple of uncharacteristic falls meant I missed the podium and finished in 5th spot.
Round 1 of the Wakeboard Queensland Summer Series kicked off this weekend and it was a great event. The round was towed by Mastercraft and we used Harley Clifford’s boat for the event.
The venue was Marshalls Ski Lakes on the Sunshine Coast. I have heard of it as a former venue for the World Championships, but have never been there. It was developed by a family and they did it without certain council approvals so it’s not really open to the public, but they let us on for a special event.
Water conditions were ideal given that it was a windy day and I had an awesome qualifying heat finishing 2nd to Harley Clifford. I had only managed 2 boat rides since coming back from the States s I was a bit rusty and it showed in the final where I only managed 4th. Missing the podium now in my last 2 events has made me hungry. I don’t want to miss another one this year.
