The Monster Energy Wake Park Triple Crown Presented by Aktion Parks has shifted to an all features event and we have added a Super Grom (12 and Under division). Given the focus that riders are putting on the features these days and after a number of requests from the top pros and sponsors, the Monster Energy Wake Park Triple Crown has shifted all of our focus, time and prize money to the features only event.

Bill McCaffray said, “Shifting to all features has been a discussion from the very first event six years ago, with the WWA offering a new Wake Park Word Series Features category and world ranking we were able to accommodate all interests. We also felt it was time to add a Super Grom division so that has been added as well. We are hopeful that this will inspire a bunch of these ripping kids to follow the entire series.”

Enter Area 52

If Area 51 is for military testing and hiding aliens, Area 52 is for shredding faces, blowing stokemeters, and drinking Not Beers. Thanks, Kevin, for not giving a shit about flying saucers! Photo: Rutledge

In today’s world of social media driven egos and fast-talking thumbs the phrase “blood, sweat, and tears” has lost some of its potency, but when it came time to describe Kevin Henshaw’s year-long effort to create his own wakeboarding paradise I couldn’t think of anything more appropriate. As cliché as it might sound, Henshaw literally bled, sweat, and cried while designing and building the property he purchased near his Florida home. Looking at the countless man hours and dollars that went into the compound many might call Kevin crazy, shortsighted, irresponsible, or all three. Having spent the better part of the last decade pushing wakeboarding in his own way though, Kevin would simply call it passion. Looking at the results, I have a hard time arguing against him.

The personal/private park isn’t a new concept – all we have to do is look at places like Shredtown and Battle Falls to see that, but Kevin’s is a first of its kind in the pro scene around Orlando and there are a few things that set it apart. For one, it features a unique top pool and 60-foot gap to the bottom pool; two, Kevin’s place isn’t limited to just a particular team of riders; and three it’s landscaped and thought out in ways that are signature Henshaw – right down to leaving one tall pine poking out into the bottom pool.
