The day was opened with a speech from James Barbour, Director of Foxlake Adventures and as Lewis Cornwall, current champion of the UK Pro Wakeboard Tour was about to take to the water and ride through our ribbon, Foxlake lived up to its name when a cheeky fox appeared on the dock and pushed Lewis head first into the lake and jumped on a wake skate and took to the water in full show-off fashion of any fox! waved to the crowd, shook his bum and took the ribbon with him as he skated to the end of the lake before running off into the bushes !! It certainly entertained the crowds and gave Foxlake the great start to the weekend .
Alan Murray Chief Operating Officer Waterskiscotland who described what had been achieved at Foxlake as a ‘game change’ for wakeboarding in Scotland through the development of the first cable tow.
For the first time Penny has not only acted as consultant to this new social enterprise as it has developed over the last 18 months but this time has jumped ship onto the Board of the social enterprise (Community Interest Company) which has been formed to develop and operate Foxlake Adventures.
The work doesn’t stop here! Over the next 2 years the Team behind Foxlake will develop a further two wake lakes, mountain bike trails and dynamic high ropes courses throughout the 100 acre site at Hedderwick Hill, Dunbar.
East Lothian Council, Waterskiscotland, British Water Ski & Wakeboard, Scottish Enterprise and Visit Scotland have all been hugely supportive in this new venture and we look forward to working with them as the project develops.
