TOE JAM WAKESKATE TOUR – READY TO KICKOFF
Four-Stop Series Will Showcase Wakeskating’s Best Talent
Orlando, Fla. — After its first nationwide tour in 2007, the Toe Jam is going international this season, to feature the world’s best wakeskaters competing for the most coveted titles in the sport.
Founded by Scott Byerly, the Toe Jam is designed to challenge wakeskaters in four categories including rails, wake riding, cable park, and winch-towed sessions. The newest addition to the tour will be in Wasaga Beach, Canada, at the former site of Wakestock. This stop and two others will give all riders a chance to qualify for the fouth stop (the main event), the Byerly Toe Jam in Orlando this September.
Rockstar Energy Drink stepped up again this season as the title sponsor for the Toe Jam Tour. O’Neill will also continue their legacy as the title sponsor of the Tour’s final event, the Byerly Toe Jam. Over $50,000 in cash and prizes will be there for the taking with a $10,000 purse at each stop and another $10,000 purse for overall results.
16 wakeskaters will be invited to the main event including:
Previous Main Event Champions – 6 Riders
Brian Grubb, Brandon Thomas, Clint Tompkins, Aaron Reed, Ben Horan, and Reed Hansen
Divisional Qualifiers – 6 Riders
Wild Cards – 4 Riders
