Juechen, July 6th, 2009
Between August 20th and 23rd, the Chill and Ride powered by Nissan celebrates its fifth anniversary. The largest wakeboard-boat event will take place in southwest Germany and invites wakeboarders and especially wakeboard boat owners to join the event, compete in the contest and meet like-minded people.
While the number of riders at the contest of the Chill and Ride increased significantly by 20% during the last years, the number of boats remained steady at twenty-five. These numbers may not seem to be impressive at first view. At second view however, it becomes clear that such a boat, manufactured by Correctcraft, Mastercraft, Supra, Moomba or Seadoo, requires an investment between 40.000 and 100.000 EUR. This may illustrate the elitist conditions behind the sport and the financial requirements for participation.
