When you mention the word 'Wakeboarding', the Midwest United States is probably not the first spot that will spring to mind. However the folks at West Rock Wake Park are definitely trying to change this!
Built from the ground up, the park in Rockford, IL has had a huge upgrade last fall moving from a System 2.0 to a full size cable. West Rock is now gaining traction as one of the country's best cables.
Sandbox Team riders Dylan Miller and John Dreiling along with Felix Georgii made a trip out to the park shortly after the full size cable was installed. Alliance Magazine's latest issue will feature a full write up of the trip, but in the meantime check out this edit by Matty Mulholland.
You'll find the West Rock Pro Shop stocked with Sandbox helmets and they also carry a full fleet of our rental specific Legend Low Rider helmets for those who don't have their own helmet or if you want to try-before-you-buy a new Sandbox helmet of your own.
