The first wakepark named in honor of Marvin John Himeyer was opened on the Chainoye Lake. There we installed the first winch for wakeboarding in Russia, the cables of which were attached to one of the coastal trees.
We joined forces with the leading kitesurfing school in St. Petersburg called Kitepiter.com and moved to the territory of the 7th Northern Fort where the highest 9-meter winch with the royal "kite" traction was installed. From there came the name Kingwinch.
Due to the termination of access to the 7th Fort, we were faced finding a new home for your favourite park, and Fort Constantine near the city of Kronstadt became this home.
By the end of 2013, two full-fledged reverse lines operated on the open water of the Gulf of Finland, which was washing the fort. The first obstacles were installed.
In winter, we had the idea of creating the first B-level jib-park in Russia. In April-2014, the design of the pools was completed, and construction work began. In the autumn of this year the park acquired its new image, and the first competitions "Fire, Water and Pipes" were held.
In 2015, we opened a winter pool project Kingwinch "MSG", which allowed to train not only in summer, but also in the off-season, excluding long breaks in wakeboarding.
The competition "Fire, Water and Pipes" in Kingwinch goes international. Wakeboard worldstar Daniel Grant comes to the Russia for the first time, and also a few more athletes from different countries.
The first franchise is opened at the recreation center in Otradnoye. In July, a park in the center of St. Petersburg — Ters Park joins the Kingwinch network. We start our own production of boards, and "Fire, Water and Pipes" become the largest extreme festival.
