SETx Wakeboard Lake is freakiní sweet. There is no better place for a wakeboard tournament in the state of Texas.

On Saturday the Prelims were right on schedule and everything went relatively smooth. However, Sunday was full of nasty weather. The rain just wouldnít break. After standing around soaking for most the morning, all the teams gather for a rider meeting on the dock. The weather man informed us that we would only have a two hour break, if that. What were we to do? After a discussion and quick vote we decided to have each team nominate one rider to represent their school. And so it was.

The scoring was based off of INT trick values. We totaled the top 10 tricks for each run with the exception of skate which was done on a scale. We then added the menís, womenís, and skate totals for each team. The simplified results are below.

Finals Standings
1 Central Florida
2 Texas A&M
3 Louisiana Tech-B
4 Oklahoma
5 Texas Tech
6 Arizona St-A

Preliminary Heat
Place School
1 Central Florida
2 Oklahoma
3 Texas A&M
4 Arizona St-A
5 Texas Tech
6 Louisiana Tech-B
7 Arizona St-B
9 Louisiana Tech-A
10 Virginia Tech-A
11 North Texas
12 Virginia Tech-B
13 SFA-B

The Teams loved the tournament! The UNT WakeTeam did a fabulous job running this event. We raffled off over $2000 worth of gear, swag, and buywake cash. Everyone went home with something whether it was a t-shirt, wakeboard, or pair of Odyssey Sunglasses. Houston Ski and Board had an insanely crazy 65% off sale. If they didnít win anything they must have bought something.

The trophies were really cool too; Lucky Devil Designs did a great job. Not only did the top three teams win a custom trophy but all the riders in the top three teams received an engraved medal. Along with all that, Jones Soda is shipping the top 3 teams a case of Jones with their Team photo on the label which was taken at the event.

Thanks for being there, we hope to see you in the future!

Special Thanks to:
Don and Joey with SETx Wakeboard Club
Oliver at Houston Ski and Board
Joel with Odyssey 20-20
Steve at Jones Soda
Eric at
And the UNT WakeTeam
