This is a grassroots wakeboard event that is usually very low key and homegrown; however, this year has gained industry attention. We are hosting a VIP pre party at Nippers Beach Grille the night before so that riders can pick up swag bags from sponsors and meet the judges, pro’s and other riders. This will be the best place to meet, photo and interview the pro riders and other athletes.
