On 28th June 2021 the British Wakeboard Squad travelled to Castle Water Ski Club in Tattershall to practice behind the epic Malibu M220.
11 squad members were present to take on the mighty wake of the Malibu M220 with Team Beaton (Rob and Travis) working tirelessly behind the scenes to get the venue, boat and squad ready to rip.
In addition to the Beatons numerous Wakeboard UK volunteers such as Mark Osmond, Rich Phillips, Ross Phillips, Mark Goldsmith were on hand to provide driving, coaching, photography, drone flying and jetty marshalling duties.
Riding on the day were Team GB riders such as Travis Beaton, Rich Phillips, Charlie Lloyd, Joseph Humphries, Ross Phillips, Mark Goldsmith, Katie Batchelor, Charlotte Millward, Melissa Lock, Emsey Pickard… All the riders laid down insane tricks on Tattershall’s lake behind the next-gen Malibu M220.
Latest addition to the squad, Isabelle Lloyd, was also on the water after claiming her place on the squad. She trialled with the squad at Practice Session 1, held at Isis Water Ski and Wakeboard Club back in May, 2021.
Riding for a potential squad place was Ollie Phillips, another up and coming mini-ripper, who put down an impressive pass full of solid grabs behind that mega M220.
Finally, from Castle Water Ski Club we had Jamie Henshaw testing out his skills against the Malibu wake, great to see a local see what the GB Squad do during training.
Massive thanks for making the session possible go out to Malibu Boats UK and Malibu Axis Europe for their amazing next-gen wake boat and full support through the event.
Mike Dovey from Malibu personally delivered the boat for the session and was on hand to see how the M220 performed with the British Squad, thanks Mike!
