Each team has a cap of 10 riders, to keep it a 1 day event. However, bring your local barber, cheerleading squad, and your most raging nightlifers to spectate and hangout.
JUDGING and contest format:
We will be judging the contest (Empire style) in the Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Outlaw, Womens, and Wakeskate divisions with podium finishers for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in those divisions.
However, when you register as a team, you are specifying your 7 riders who will be judged for qualification for nationals.
Basically, you will be judged in your chosen skill level, and we will go through the results, find the 7 people you specified as your “team” and calculate those points to use for nationals qualification.
Following the event we will have a pregame and awards ceremony at a super chill house, The Dojo.
1215 nw 5th ave Gainesville FL 32601
There is an official after party at Scene night club. Those who were at the contest will have VIP access and free cover before 11pm. We will have rides to and from The Dojo to Scene after awards. I know all of us crusty lake goons are down for a good time, so do the responsible thing and party your ass off in one of the best party towns in Le United States.
We encourage those who do not want to rough it to stay at The Holiday Inn, because the location is prime and the prices are affordable. They gave us a special deal of $89 per night if you say “USA WAKEBOARD”. We recommend you stay the nights of the 11th and 12th so you can be to Lake Wauburg by 9AM the day of the contest and so you can stay the night for the festivities.
