Orlando, Fla. —Stop number two on the Toe Jam wakeskate series is set for May 8-9 at the Projects in Orlando, Florida. The world’s best riders will be battling it out behind a PWC in the sport’s most progressive rail course.
Toe Jam director Scott Byerly is looking forward to another throw down at the historic Projects site. “This is where it all started.” Byerly said. “There’s no better place to have a rail contest. And this site, with all its history, really makes the riders want to ride good and show the world that they’re pushing it.”
Just like every rail event, Byerly stated that the course is a “rail park” which means riders will be judged rail-heavy, but that surface and lip tricks will be counted as well. Will we see another flawless run by last year’s champion Nick Taylor? Perhaps another Ben Horan flicked kickflip off a flat rail? Does Reed Hansen still have his 360 flips on lock? All these questions and more will be answered soon enough.
Semi-finalists will be challenging for six open spots into the 12-man finals. Six other spots are already reserved for past Toe Jam Champions.
