Wakeboarding is a freestyle sport that has developed from surfing and waterskiing, with influences from skateboarding and snowboarding. Wakeboarding is the fastest growing water sport in the world with competitors performing flips, tricks, spins and a variety of other gravity-defying aerial stunts, sometimes as high as 20-feet in the air. A competitive free ride format will be used and riders will be judged on 3 style categories: Execution, Intensity and Composition. Riders will perform complex maneuvers off the boat's wake.
