Unless you were under a rock or ducking for cover you would have known Wakestock 2007 hit Toronto this weekend. From Hip Hop to Punk, skateboarding to wakeboarding, Moto X to surf wear to the Reef Girls Bikini contest there was a lot to see.
Saturday probably had the best line up of events and music though today’s Skateboard and Wakeboard finals were no joke. Locals Lee Yankou and Morgan Smith will be among the amateurs competing in the skateboard contest finals today. Hip Hop heavyweights Del and De La Soul were a welcome addition to the list of bands. GTA’s The End had an amazing set on the Indie Stage Saturday. The Deftones had some minor sound trouble at the start of their set but went on with their usual amazing wall of sound. The legendary Chad Muska had the crowd chearing at the Element Skateboard street course. Didn’t get to ask him about what was was like living next door to Paris Hilton a few years back but i digress… Fellow team Element Skateboard teammates Chad Tim Tim and Levi Brown also were tearing it up despite the heat. No body could touch Montreal’s Casey MacDonald on the mini-ramp. He took 1st place handily. Flying Motorcycles, beer, food and the Reef Girls provided distractions from above. Oh yeah there was wakeboarding too.
If you missed out this year don’t make the same mistake next year!
