Wakestock 2007: Day One Fun
Centre Island hasn't been so much fun since I was a kid. The first day of Wakestock gave me a chance to familiarize myself with the grounds and get a taste of the awesome skating, wakeboard and music events featured throughout the weekend.
There was so much to see and do in one day, I hardly know where to begin. Lots of awesome photos and stories to tell after the drop-in...
I wandered by the Telus booth where
a banana-split eating contest was underway.
I wandered through the assortment, meeting cool people and picking up a few freebies as I went: $5 gift vouchers from Greyhound Canada, stickers from Blindfive Clothing and In the Basement , and samples of chocolate milk and Coke. I thought of combining them to make a brown cow.
I saw lots of cool skater clothes at Corbett's where I met Amelia (pictured here in the pink shirt). But that left me too hot to put on more clothes.
So I headed towards the water to cool off, where I took in some wakeboard action before heading back to the RGX Skatepark, where I saw Andre Besner, 14, do a spread-eagle pop-shove earlier in the day.
I also caught Toronto's first ever Urban Freestyle Moto-Xhibition which left me deaf and in awe.
If you missed all this action, don't you worry. Saturday's lineup is stellar! You get to see a whole lot more skating, wakeboarding and a bunch of hot musical acts such as The Deftones, Goldfinger, De La Soul and Del Tha Funkee Homosapien (the voice of Gorillaz' Clint Eastwood and Rock the House.
