Ride the wild wakes

Local wakeboarders show their stuff at Calgary event.

Three local wakeboarders made a big impression over the weekend at the first tournament stop on the Alberta Wake Tour.  The event, presented by Water Ski & Wakeboard Alberta was held at Chestermere Lake north of Calgary and featured riders from all three western provinces.  Cranbrook’s Colden Thompson took first place overall in the tournament, winning the Open Division; brothers Dagen and Ryder Duczek took 1st and 2nd respectively in the U-11 Division.   Thompson will look for his second win of the season this coming weekend as the tour makes a stop in Pine Lake, Alberta.
