The Latest News from K66
This year saw Buddy Redman cruise the wake parks for the first time and now he's taking the lakes by storm. At 11 years of age and with a mere five months of wakeboarding under his belt, this young gun is definitely one to watch.
After only a couple of months out on the water, Buddy Redman took the plunge to say the least and entered his first competition on the Grass Roots Tour.
First stop 'Wake Up Docklands' and with only one practice run, Buddy nailed 2nd place. From then on in Buddy collected 1st Junior Rookie at the South Coast Regional competition, and 2nd's in the Northern, East/Midlands and National UK Ranking. Not bad going to say the least for the 11 year old that up until this year, had virtually never gone to a wake park, let alone stood on a board.
What's next for our Buddy Redman? Well, he's moving onto the full cable parks for training and coaching and is entering the Liquid Leisure winter series, which starts next weekend. The competiton will be stiff, but that doesn't seem to put him off.
There is a new definition for the word determination and it's Buddy Redman. With such drive and guts, it is clear that this rookie will be leaving that title behind before you can say 'Chicken Salad'.
On Wednesday evening, the West Street Loft in Shoreham played host to Andre Paskowski's beautifully shot film, Below The Surface. Many travelled from near and far to see the UK preview and pay thier heart felt respects to our friend of late. Photo's suppied by Global Shots
Last weekend, K66, Fanatic and ION team rider Holly Bassett (15 years of age) competed in and won the Ladies division in the BSUPA National championships at Watergate Bay Cornwall. Having been previously placed in the Junior section, this was Holly's first attempt in the Ladies section. Not only was it a mighty fine attempt, but she smashed it.
