On Sunday 22nd April, the sun gods were upon us (hard to believe, I know!) for the first Ladies Morning of 2012. The girls were there bright and early to join Sarah Kingdom and I for a quick warm up with Sharm of Kurup Fit, who took us through some dynamic stretches and exercises to warm us up a treat, before hitting the glass.
The group of girls were raring to get on the water and get a few warm up laps under their belts, or wetsuits rather. We had a few new girls who were getting around the cable on kneeboards and progressed quickly onto wakeboards. We also had a record number of girls retuning from injury / surgery.
Sarah and I were doing ‘double-ups’ with girls that wanted help on the water, which included kickers, spins, slider work, and raleys. Everyone was on it!
Ash won the WakeMK 1hr Pro Coaching Voucher because she nailed a new trick while hitting a new slider on double ups with me!
Emma won the Two Seasons £15 Vouchers, a Bloc sunglasses case and a retro Roxy waterproof camera for getting on amazingly well for her first time wakeboarding!
Kelly won the Kurup Fit £10 Voucher – she did really well on her first ride back since shoulder surgery!
Amy Carter won the Wide-A-Wake goodie bag – she was doing laps in switch on a wakeboard and it was her first time!
It was a fantastic turnout for the first session of the season, and a massive thank you goes out to all the sponsors who helped us out and especially a big thanks to all the girls who got involved and made it a great morning!!
The next WakeMK Ladies Morning is on the 20th May.
