Still on top with a blown knee… December 9, 2009 by Brad Smeele (Wakeboarder)

brad-profile-70-clear-newHolla holla, I had a great weekend down in Christchurch at the Liquid Malisha Tournament of Wake!!  I was a bit nervous about riding on my blown knee and whether or not I would be able to hold it together after not really riding for over 2 months.

But by the end of the day I came out ontop, Winning the $2,500 prize money and a nice big novelty cheque to go along with it. Rhyleigh Fitzner from Australia came in 2nd and Tony Evans had a great run finishing him in 3rd.

In the women’s division the ozzy young gun Caitlin Blaauw took the top spot with ease throwing down a near flawless run.

I will have some pics and a short vid up soon for your viewing pleasure.

Speaking of viewing pleasure… I am going in for my knee surgery on Friday this week and I just found out that I will be staying awake and able to watch my surgery… So I have decided that I will film it and post it online for you all to see…Later!

Liquid Malisha Tournament of Wake, Chch December 3, 2009 by Brad Smeele (Wakeboarder)

brad-profile-70-clear-newTomorrow I will be heading down south for the Liquid Malisha Tournament of Wake. It will be my last ride before I get my knee reconstruction so I will be going hard!!  Plus there is $3,000 up for grabs for 1st place so it should be a good event.

If you are in the Christchurch area, make sure you come along to Lake Crichton, just out of Dunsandal, to check out the action and to also grab a cold Dew.  The event is on Saturday the 5th December

The group have targeted the 2011 World Championships as their ultimate goal, although a 2010 Winter X-Games invitation is not out of the question for Gotlieb, who has several top-five finishes on the world stage, including a first-place finish in slopestyle at this year’s inaugural 100% Pure New Zealand Winter Games held at The Remarkables in Queenstown.
