2023 Boardstock Cable Park Championships
Boardstock 2023 was marked on Aussie cable wake-boarders calendars since being announced last year.
It's Australia's longest and most popular cable park contest and Jetpilot + Liquidforce Australia were both happy to continue their long running support of the event with naming rights sponsorships for the Jetpilot King of Kicker and the Liquidforce Features Contest.
Jetpilot was extremely proud of our Aussie team riders across the event and stoked to see such an amazing mix of ages riding and ripping. From the super groms all the way through to the Pros. Riders came from all over: Perth, Cairns, Melbourne, Penrith & the Gold Coast. It was great weather and great vibes all around.
The main attraction of the event was the Pro Mens division. All the heavy hitters.
The riding was mental across the board and we were pumped for having Jetpilot team riders atop the podium in both comps.
Busty Dunn taking out the King of Kickers title on the Saturday rounded out with a 2nd in the Features comp on Sunday.
Busty continues his impressive career form at Boardstock, now with back to back King of Kickers titles across 2022 & 2023
and consecutive 2nd place finishes in the Features contest. Busty is the consumate
professional and continues to keep the bar high for cable wakeboarding here in Australia.
Ladies and gentlemen.
If you didn't already know, well, now you know.
In only his 2nd Pro Boardstock (2 x 4th places in 2022) he has again impressed and melted a few minds along the way.
Benny took a 3rd in the King of Kickers capped with a massive breakthrough 1st career win in Pro's for Features Only.
We were incredibly stoked to see him get up and take the W. Kid is good. Keep an eye on him as he heads to Europe later this year.
Not everyone can podium at these events and we were very proud of our other team riders who were ripping and having fun all weekend and put on an amazing display to represented the brand and sport in such a good way.
