Ride wakeboard and flowboard viewing the Kremlin and State History Museum, it’s free
Over 1,500 people have already tried to ride the wave right in the centre of Moscow. On 25 August 2017, specially for Moscow City Day, unique sportsgrounds dedicated to extreme sports were opened just thirty metres from the zero kilometre.
On September 8 and 9 the ground shall see the Wakeboarding International Tournament. Registration of the competition entries is already open: https://wakebase.ru/
On September 8, sportsmen shall pass through qualification runs, and on September 9 semi-final and finals shall take place.
“Wake-park almost on Red Square: I didn’t believe it was possible! I don’t know what can be cooler!”,
Professional wakeboarder Maxim Gromov
“For wakeboard, it’s a historical moment. I am glad that our sport is getting more and more popular.”,
Roman Ovodov, two-time Russian champion in wakeboarding
The Artificial Wave installation to ride flowboard is on Manezhnaya Square, and on Revolution Square a wake-park with two swimming pools, 25 and 50 m long, 1 m deep, with total volume of about 1,000 tonnes.
The water venues will host spectacular shows, exhibition performances and competitions featuring the world’s strongest athletes. Anyone aged between 12 and 60, who wish to learn the new water sports, can do so (children below 18 are allowed to participate in workshops with adults only), with professional instructors and athletes helping.
More than 140 sportsmen from 10 countries such as Russia, the Republic of Belarus, Austria, Denmark, Hungary, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Latvia, and Netherlands shall participate in the Wakeboarding International Tournament.
The tournament prize money amount which was raised by sponsors’ donations counts 600,000 rubles.
There will be two swimming pools 11-metre-wide and 8 figures for jibbing to cross from one pool to the other on a special stage.
A special programme for school children will take place between 1-3 September.
The venues have everything necessary for safe and comfortable rides: warm locker rooms, free rental of diving suits, boards, vests and helmets. The venues will also have lighting so as to be able to ride at night.
Venues will work until 9 October.
The all-weather wake- and flowboard park in the centre of Moscow has already been working for two weeks!
In this time we have realized a lot… and have decided to change the registration procedure. Now it will be done in steps: every new day it will open only for the next one.
Why is it easier?
When you could register for any day, even in a week, some forgot about the lesson or didn’t even bother to turn up. The valuable time was wasted. Our smiley trainers felt blue. There were no joyful shouts above the water, or fascinating selfies in diving suits.
When you register for the next day, the chances that your plans would suddenly change are minimal. So the watersports park will not be empty. The trainers will smile again, and the sun will shine even brighter!
When does the registration open?
On Sunday, 24 September, it will be possible to sign up for Monday, 25 September. Over the weekend you will be making plans for the next week, and maybe you will want to ride a wake- or a flowboard. Right now there are no vacant lots on the days before 24 September.
You’re dying to ride a wave, but cannot do it before 24 September?
Send our call-centre an application with your phone number, name and surname. If there is any free time, we will call you immediately! But 1st come 1st served :)
Only 6 people can participate in the flowriding workshops at the same time, and for in the wakeboarding. Every lesson lasts for one hour.
