SINGAPORE, February 12, 2011: Maxout Hydrosports will be hosting its 4th annual triple wake competition in Singapore from 11 to 13 March 2011.
West Side JamTM 2011 will showcase the best wakeboarders from the United States, UK, Australia, Italy, Philippines, Thailand, Korea, Japan and Singapore battling it out for the crown and bragging rights in the Open Wakeboard as well as Open Wakeskate categories. Additionally, local wakeboard and wakeskate competitors will compete in the Freeride Wake divisions.
Highlights of this year’s foreign competitors include 13-year-old international wakeboard phenomenon Daniel Grant, wakeskate legends Aaron Reed and Danny Hampson from the United States, as well as Asian wakeboard heavyweights Tatsanai Kuakoonrat and Padiwat Jaemjan from Thailand.
