Jeremiah Hoppe: backside wake dreams

Jeremiah Hoppe has conquered the 2012 Ca$h for Tricks, in Friedrichshafen, Germany.


The Swedish wakeboarder took the top honours at the wakeboarding event, after successfully pulling the first ever Nosegrab Double Front to Fakie.

Twenty wakeboarders from nine countries were invited by Nico von Lerchenfeld to battle for one of the coveted glass cash cylinders. A total of €3,333 of prize money was to be awarded.

The bigger the applause, the more money riders would cash in. Nico von Lerchenfeld and Steffen Vollert made it into the finals. Tricks were being spitted: Backside Boardslide 360 Transfer, Toeside Backside 360 Tailpress to Frontslide 360, etc.

Young gun Tobias Michel was on fire. The wonder kid from the Allgäu, near Friedrichshafen, showed off with plenty of style and saved the third biggest purse.

Last year's winner Mattias Hoppe got €510, right behind his younger brother Jeremia with €535 Euros. The first ever Double Frontflip Nosegrab to Revert was decisive.

Finally, the Swedish riders met again in the Best Trick session, which Mattias won with a Toesidee Frontside 1080.
