Texas Two-Step Stop #2 of The Wakeskate Tour present... / Jun.17.2014
The Texas Two-Step went off without a hitch. Texas hospitality was in full swing at Hydrous Wake Park in Little Elm. Having the cable park and sports bar on-site brought the action straight to the crowd for this amazing event. As with all things in Texas, the drop was bigger than anything we've seen on The Wakeskate Tour. The drop measured overhead for even our tallest competitors, presenting a genuine challenge to everyone riding, but any doubts about shredability were soon put to rest. Practice and qualifiers proved once again that wakeskating's rate of progression was not slowing down any time soon. Metal rails and big drops were the theme for this unreal event. After some of the best quarter-finals we've ever seen, we moved right into the new semi-finals format, featuring three heats of 4, as opposed to our old 6-man heats, allowing our semi-finals riders to keep their flow going a bit easier. Gunning for one of the top two spots in each heat was the name of the game, everyone fighting for their chance to make it into The Wakeskate Tour's Six Man Super Final. Danny Hampson, Bret Little, Nick Robinson, Yan Lecomte, Austin Pastura, & Andrew Pastura battled it out for 90 minutes with some of the heaviest-hitting riding we have seen. Austin Pastura was the man to beat, coming into The Texas Two-Step at the top of the ranks. When the dust settled it was 2-time world champ Andrew Pastura who put it all together with a switch frontside flip, bigspin boardslide line & a shove frontboard, 270 to switch frontboard line, showing once again that he's among the best wakeskaters we've ever seen. The Pastura’s are now tied for first place overall taking a big chunk of the 50K prize purse and garanteeing themselves a Spring Training spot in the Philippines!
Stay tuned at thewakeskatetour.com for all the standings as they unfold. We are excited to see who finishes in the Top Ten this season, earning themselves a spot on the "Spring Training" trip to the Philippines, courtesy of CWC and Republic Wakeparks. This season is building up to be very exciting so far, with lots on the table, & the next 2 stops are guaranteed to be all-time.

The event was one of our best and we can't thank Chad Lacerte, Cody Johnson, & the rest of the crew at Hydrous Wake Park and Towers Tap House enough for making this stop such an incredible weekend. The Wakeskate Tour is only as good as it's athletes, staff, & sites, so we really appreciate all the help & support we receive. Huge thanks goes to our sponsors for their continued support: Rockstar Energy, Supra Boats, Nike, Ronix, Sesitec System 2.0, Unit Parktech, Spy Optics, the CWC, and Republic Wake Parks. Without their help, none of this would be possible.
