What makes the event unique? The Riptank Open draws a wide range of participants from the hard core competitor to the family recreational. This will be a great opportunity for Lubbock’s wakeboard community to get together and share their passion for riding. Top professional riders will continue to deliver their jaw dropping performances and remind people why wakeboarding is the most exciting sport on the water.
I know this event is quite far off, but I need to go ahead and stake some claim to the date. If you schedule a wakeboard competition on the same date both events will suffer a loss in participation. Wakeboarding is a small industry and those that try to make a living riding need to be able to attend every event that has cash prizes.
