Stop 1 at Loch View Motel

The 1st of the Loch Stock tour stops got underway on the 11th and 12th June at Loch View motel in Dumfriesshire. Despite a pretty sketchy weather forecast the event was blessed with sunshine and flat water all weekend for the riders to enjoy. Satuday once again saw every set with Jack Hammersley and Kurt Graham completely sold out, with riders making the most of the expert coaching behind the stunning 2011 Nautique Super Air 210. Stereo Vandals once again took the roof off in the evening with a blinding VDJ set with new addition to the line up Joe McAuley warming things up. Proprietor Beano kept the bar open and the drinks flowing well into the night, not to mention putting up with a typically rowdy wakeboard crowd! There were yet more new faces one on the competition running order on Sunday, inculding the 1080 crew who travelled all the way from Birmingham to be at the event. The guys brought with them some serious competition taking home 3 podium places, not to mention a stack of prizes from Fox, Loch Lomond Wakeboard, O’Neill and Mayles watersports.

It’s great to see more and more folk making the trip to Loch Stock whether it’s to ride or just to enjoy the weekend atmosphere. The next tour stop takes us to Loch Earn where the festival spirit really kicked off in 2010. With entertainment and riding all day Saturday, followed by the legendary party with bands and DJ sets, (of course not forgetting the Sunday showdown!), more and more people are packing a tent and making the trip for the whole weekend. With so much going on it’s well worth it so why not do the same?! We’ll keep you posted on the Loch Earn stop but until then keep an eye on www.loch-stock .com for full results listings, sponsors and more!
