We arrived into Kansas City at 12:30 in the middle of the night and were exhausted. Of course we typed the wrong address into our GPS and ended up an hour away from our hotel. To make the night even better, we got pulled over for not using a turn signal to merge onto the freeway. When the cop walked up, we rolled down the back window so he could see Bob. The cop was immediately convinced that Bob was Shawn White. Bob said he wasn’t Shawn White but the cop didnt believe him. In the end, the cop wanted to escort Shawn White back to our hotel. Ticket free.
A few hours later we woke up and headed down to KC Watersports. Bob Soven and the “Win a Ride” champ Derek Berry rode the cable park all day. Bob was launching huge airs off the ramp and Derek was doing some stylish butt slides on the Body Glove box. KC Watersports regular, Max Pierson joined us out there and got in some really good sessions. Around 11:00, KCW opened up to the public and two little groms, Brent and Kaiden Powell hit the ramp and box with Bob Soven, after just getting back from the WWA World Championships.
Thank you so much Sean and Sarah Hollonbeck for hosting the “Win a Ride” at KC Watersports. The highlight of the day was for sure Derek butt sliding the Body Glove box throwing up the shaka!
