Top international competitors hoping to compete include UK's Nik Baker, Kauli Seadi and Ricardo Campello from Brazil, the Prichard brothers from the US, Douglas Diaz from Venezuela, and the top Spanish sisters Iballa and Daida Moreno.

You can view the action online via the watersports arena webcam.

New additions on the pool for 2005 include the first ever British Indoor Wakeboarding Championships which will run from Monday 10 to Wednesday 12 January and will attract the best of British wakeboarders. The pool is also staging the National Canoe Polo Championships where teams from around the country will be competing to be crowned UK champions.
