Cowtown Announces Wakeboard Exhibition and FREE Wakeboarding at Mayfest Today Through Sunday!!

Cowtown Wakepark has setup a Little Bro system and put some kickers and sliders in the water on the Trinity River at the Trinity Park for Mayfest. Trinity Park is just 2 miles form the eventual site of Cowtown which is currently being dug.   “We wanted to show the people of Fort Worth what wakeboarding is all about, so we teamed up with the best festival in the DFW area, got the world’s best riders to come out, and we will be having exhibitions and free wakeboarding all day until the festival is over” says Tommy Fambrough, Cowtown’s owner.

JD Granger, the Executive Director of the Trinity Vision Authority adds “We are very excited to have Cowtown Wakepark provide the river entertainment at Mayfest this year. Wakeboarding on the river is new to Fort Worth and is going to be so exciting for kids of all ages.  We are thrilled that the best in the field of wakeboarding have embraced Fort Worth’s vision for enhanced recreation and development and owe a big thank you to the Tarrant Regional Water District for allowing this to happen. Come on down and see some great wakeboarding from world class athletes and try wakeboarding for yourself, courtesy of the Cowtown Wakepark!!”

I will be throwing some 900s, 720’s, a Pete Rose or  2, and some back lipping and 270 ing of all the rails.
