Army stir the waters in modern water sports
Wakeboarding and waterskiing is a recognised sport within the Army and is increasing in popularity year on year. The Army wakeboarding and waterskiing competition is being ran at Box End Park in Bedford ([ http://www.boxendpark.com/ ]http://www.boxendpark.com/) 8-13 Sept which sees 4 days of training for approximately 40 individuals who will range in ability from complete beginners to advanced riders.
The training will take place on both boat and cable and culminate in a competition on the Friday. The competition scores individuals on their ability to perform tricks on both the surface of the water, aerial and over obstacles on both Boat and Cable for wakeboarding whilst a slalom course is set up for water-skiers (just behind the boat).
