Utah’s own Marc Glover took the top prize in the 19 and under category in the Wake in the Park event put on by Idaho Water Sports on May 5, 2008. The rail jam was the first of its kind in Idaho and was held in a wave pool at a water park.
The rail was a 45 foot A frame rail, but there was also a kicker for those who were more comfortable hitting the kicker. Marc Spent his time on the rail, after having hit Dewey’s Rail all summer last year, it was his forte. There were about 25 other competitors, each had about a 30 minute window to hit the rail as many times as they could.
The wave pool at the park was set up pretty nice, no waves were being thrown, but with the kicker and the rail there was plenty going on. Marc reports that the event was put together pretty well and Idaho Water Sports did a great job putting it together, he hinted that they would be doing more for sure in the future. In his winnings Marc walked away with a Liquid Force Fish wakeboard. If you see Marc out on the water, tell him congratulations!
