• There will be event categories for athletes of all abilities.

• Top regional riders will be invited to compete in the Open Division

• 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.

Is it possible to have the emcee play catchy music and maybe loud announcements so that the photographers will not be caught off guard as to when the next competitor starts? Who knows...the music might inspire the competitors do "crazy" stunts.

Red Bull will provide the music and we will have a commentator announce the names of the athletes before they begin their routine. There will be an official notice board with a schedule of events and an athletes' starting order
