More than 130 wakesurfers participated in the Synthetic Swell, in Lake Elsinore and San Diego Bay.

The largest wakesurfing event ever in Southern California attracted 58 riders to Elsinore and 73 riders to Pepper Park, with a total of 19 boats involved.

It has been considered and historic demo day for all wakesurfing enthusiasts. Synthetic Swell was organized by Marco Thompson and gathered gear dealers, athletes and boat owners.

The meeting involved perfect air 360s, shuvits and transfers, as well as shared knowledge of the art of wakesurfing. Everybody brought their boards and equipment for two days of water sports.

The inaugural Synthetic Swell will surely open way to a new era in wakesurfing.
