He will be looking to replicate his win at the WAKEBOARD RAIL & AIR 2017, but it won’t be easy. On Friday 23 June and Sunday 25 June the top three athletes from last year will take on some of the best in the world, including 19-year-old Guenther Oka from the USA – who had a super strong year in 2016 – and 21-year-old Aaron Gunn from Australia – a two-time world champion in his own right. Among the other riders on the start line will be the 22-year-old American John Dreiling (3rd overall in the Wake Park World Series 2016) as well as MASH veteran William Klang from Sweden and the German duo of Bene Tremmel and Alexander Aulbach. If you thought the action was extreme last year, things are set to get even more intense in 2017 with a new Big Air set-up featuring rails and other obstacles.
