The SUMMER KRUSH
MARINE PRODUCTS PRESENTS THE 2016 SUPRA/MOOMBA “SUMMER KRUSH” WAKEBOARD COMPETITION AND WAKESURF DEMO EVENT MAKING ITS DEBUT ON THE SHORES OF EAST CANYON RESERVOIR, UT!
“Presented by a constellation of seasoned action sports event organizers, The SUMMER KRUSH will put the region’s wake sport enthusiasts summer on track at East Canyon Reservoir Saturday, June 25th.”
Salt Lake City, Utah- June 14, 2016 – With some serious competitors registered for the invitational Wakeboard Competition and seats moving fast for the Wake surf demo opportunity to ride behind the best wakesurf boats and boards on the market, this day will be packed full of action and activities on the beach and in the water!
When the organizers were asked by Utah DNR officials to bring this event to life during boat show season this past winter, Marine Products immediately stepped up as title sponsor and exclusive tow boats for the event with their Supra and Moomba lines. The all-day event will feature Wakeboard competitors from intermediate, advanced, open women and outlaw divisions culminating in cash podiums for the best of the best in each. Contest organizer and presenter James Kleinshnitz of wakeutah.com stated, “We wanted to bring a contest online to start the season that would push intermediate to regional pro riders to up their riding early so that they can compete at their highest abilities all season and inspire younger riders to advance as we have no beginner or youth divisions on this particular event making it aspirational to get an invitation in years to come and be riding at a certain level. We expect to see some early season “A game” riding at this inaugural.”
The Wake Surf Demo is all day and features the entire pro shop board offerings of Marine Products including Liquid Force, Ronix, CWB, O’Brien, Wakewood and more with their top of the line Supra and Moomba tow boats exclusively pulling this event. Sample all the boards and get set behind each boats unique surf wake! All going down in an exclusive “no wake zone” where only participating boats can operate. “This is a fantastic opportunity for the active enthusiast looking for their next boat or board to get a session behind these elite tow boats and try several boards. Our motivation in growing these events is building the family culture and community around it in the region.” Said Paul Avner, event organizer and principal partner at ClubRecUtah.com. Additionally, Supra Boats and SheShreds.co pro team athlete, wakeboarder Taylor McCullough will be on hand to sign autographs and will throw down a demo run to entertain before the podiums are announced. Taylor is currently ranked 4th in the World coming off a 3rd place podium at the Nautique European Open in Portugal.
