Westside Jam 2008


Are you reading this at your desk and wishing you were cruising out at sea with the wind in your hair and the sun kissing your cheeks?

At Maxout Hydrosports, we are in the business of watersports adventures – wakeboard, wakeskate, wakesurf – and yacht charters for events and parties. But most of all, we are in the passion of making your life out of the city an adventure worth writing about!

On 1st and 2nd March 2008, Maxout Hydrosports will be hosting its biggest event of the year, Westside Jam 2008, at Raffles Marina, Singapore. Besides launching Singapore’s biggest sea-floating funbox, we are presenting a regional wakeboard, wakeskate and wakesurf competition as well as a bikini contest on a yacht.

We would like you to be a part of this exciting ringside party onboard a convoy of yachts – Fan Rong, Carpe Diem and Oriental Dream. Our super-yacht berth at Raffles Marina, Singapore, will be transformed into Singapore’s first true seafront stadium and you are invited!

For a preview of what’s to come, please join us on 22 February 2008 from 2-3pm for a sneak peek of the funbox. Our instructors will show you some acrobatic tricks on the water and even give you a lesson or two on wakeboarding. We’re warning you though, it can be addictive.

To RSVP and for more information, please call Ryan Lee / Bronson Chan at (65) 6869 2291. (If we are out at sea, do send us an email at holla@maxouthydrosports.com)


Holla!



Ryan Lee
Captain/Chief Instructor


Westside Jam 2008

What do the CEO of a major power generation company and a watersports entrepreneur have in common?

Besides owning yachts that are berthed at Raffles Marina, Singapore, both are involved in launching Singapore’s first sea-floating and biggest-ever watersports funbox – a world-class, custom-built slider for wakeboard and wakeskate tricks.

“When Ryan (Maxout Hydrosports) first came to me with the idea of AeroGate sponsoring this highly charged and exciting event, I was honored. As a young and vibrant company, AeroGate employs the same dynamic and professional approach to its clients’ needs as do these young stars of the Asian wakeboarding scene who provide such great entertainment to avid fans and spectators! I hope the Westside Jam gets all the recognition and support it deserves for promoting such exciting, fun sports as wakeboarding, wakeskating and wakesurfing. We, at AeroGate, are proud to be main sponsor of this event for 2008!”
Eddie Law – CEO, AeroGate Pte Ltd

Westside Jam 2008 is a two-day weekender event that launches this gigantic, 70-foot funbox that cost $15,000 to build. This event is also a platform for adrenaline junkies and regional pros to showcase their tricks and stunts and compete in three categories: wakeboard, wakeskate and wakesurf. Besides earning peer recognition, the competitors stand to win cash and product prizes totaling more than S$50,000 including two signed Manchester United team jerseys that were last sold at an auction for S$20,000 each.

“We are stoked to be able to take our signature Maxout events to the next challenging level, with the support of visionary friends such as AeroGate, Raffles Marina and the Wakeboard Association as well as all our product sponsors. We are proud to have invited Asia’s best wakeboard and wakeskate champs to join us in this competition. But more importantly, we are going all out to create a hip and fun event to launch our new funbox as well as to thank all our friends for being a part of the extended Maxout family. Our motto: A bad day at sea is better than a good day at work…”
Ryan Lee – Director, Maxout Hydrosports Pte Ltd

The super-yacht berth at Raffles Marina, Singapore, will be transformed into a seafront stadium just for this event. Spectators, invited guests and competitors can choose to mingle on the berth, or on one of the three event yachts – Fan Rong, Carpe Diem and Oriental Dream.

There’s plenty to do over the two days. You can get baked on the beach, catch the competition, sign up for some wakeboarding lessons, or hang out with a tipple or two. In addition to a rocking party vibe of pumping music and a floating beer bar, a bikini contest by Fish Head Bikinis will set the temperature rising. And do stay for the spectacular sunset.

The Maxout retail boutique will showcase a preview of the latest products from some of the world’s coolest, performance-driven watersports brands such as Gator Boards (championship wakeboards, wakeskates and accessories), O’Neil (watersports apparel), Underground Products (the preferred street label of worldwide wakeboard, wakeskate and BMX champs), Nice (wake, kite, snow and surf bindings and accessories) and Fish Head (boating, fishing and lifestyle apparel).
