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.

Wakesurfing is a water sport in which a rider trails behind a boat, riding the boat's wake without being directly pulled by the boat. After getting up on the wake, typically by use of a tow rope, the wakesurfers will drop the rope, and ride the steep face below the wave's peak in a fashion reminiscent of surfing. Wakesurfers generally use special boards, designed specifically for wakes.
