Event: Core Slider Jam
Where: Perth, Western Australia
Core Magazine hosted an insane slider jam in Perth that featured multiple feature hits that were scored over two runs through the course. The event was held in a perfect flatwater location at “Woodman’s Point” and attacted riders worldwide, including Naish UK rider Sam Light. Sam progressed through the first day singles to take the win on his 10m Torch and a 2007 Thorn that was perfect for some slider abuse.
The second day also provided perfect conditions and a tough Andy Yates came from third in the singles to challenge Sam in the finals. Andy was on fire and took both heats for the win. Sam rode exceptionally well and learned many new moves during the event, as he mosty competes in PKRA events and rides very little on siders. Naish is extremely stoked with Sam’s performance and very pleased with the impression he has left upon the wakestyle scene.
