JUMP RETURNS TO GOLDEN FALL AS THE MAGIC RAMPS HOTS UP !

Ben & Jake - Version 2

World and National Records have been demolished on our Magic Ramp over the years – but in recent times, Slalom almost took over. Now times are changing again ! First it was Abby Durham getting away from horses and Show Jumping and then landing her first Waterski Jumps this week. Now Ben Dickson at just 15 years of age and with only a few months experience on the water, is landing three out of three ! Just last night, somebody even saw past National Overall Champion Carl Cautley strapping on some long boardsĀ  – and he was still able to walk back to his car all by himself.

This is all great news. ‘Big thanks also to Jake Bridges who was the inspiration behind our younger Jumpers taking on the challenge. His years with our dear friend Ray Stokes have made him a first class instructor and as we all know, good coaching makes all the difference. Jake should know as he holds Ireland’s National Records in Jump and Slalom.

What a great week on the water – and there is more to come.
