Nick Heckerson has brought up a good point on collegiate waterski teams vs. collegiate wakeboard teams. Texas Tech will be hosting a NCWSA 3 event tournament in conjunction with a wakeboard tournament in Hutto, TX. The same weekend the SMU wakeboard club has scheduled a collegiate wakeboard tournament. These 2 events will suffer because of the piggyback scheduling.

There was some effort on the part of Barret Pearlman and Wes Kay to set up a national collegiate wakeboard association. I have not heard of any events being held under this organization.

I personally prefer the NCWSA which already has a solid foundation and Nationals set up. It will be very easy to insert a wakeboard competition to the collegiate 3 event. They want to see this happen. I would say at the Baylor Invitational this past weekend there were at least 3 wakeboarders for every one trick skier.

It would be so easy to make this work. The waterski teams and wakeboard teams need to collaborate.

I remember the 2002 AWA nationals at Aquaplex and they were a blast. The level of riding and the atmosphere were great. I would love to go to a tournament like that every semester.

Anyone who is interested in setting up a series for the fall of 2006 needs to start working on it now and produce a calendar of events. I am going to coordinate with South Central Region which includes NM, TX, LA, AR. To find contact information for the NCWSA teams go to www.ncwsa.com. I promise that you will be able to find plenty of wakeboarders on these teams.

This disscussion forum is always dead. I would really like to see that change.
