OWC Hosts Largest Slider Spectacular In 14-Year History


Aktion ParksORLANDO, FL – Aktion Parks is proud to announce that the 2016 Slider Spectacular, held over the weekend at Orlando Watersports Complex (OWC), was the largest in the event's 14-year history.
In addition to a large crowd on-site, more than 3,000 viewers tuned into the Facebook Live stream over the two day competition to watch a record 74 riders compete in nine divisions spanning all ages and abilities. Spectators had the opportunity to browse several on-site vendors including Performance Ski & Surf, BB Talking, Duncan Toys, SeaDek and UNLEASHED magazine.
Slider SpectacularThe launch of the new judging format and TheBoardr scoring system was incredibly successful. Scores were released immediately and posted online after each heat, making the results easily accessible by all competitors and spectators. Final results for each division can be found below.

• Male Rider of the Year – Brandon and Josh Harris
• Female Rider of the Year – Priscilla Cruz
• Grom Rider of the Year – Hayden Carnes
• "Check out this Kid" Award – Gavin Giglio
• Honorary “Cable Rat” Award – Josh Harris (with 210 days of riding in 2016)

Bill Yeargin, CEO of Correct Craft (owner of Aktion Parks) stated, "The Slider Spectacular is always an annual highlight at OWC and this year’s event was the best yet!" Yeargin added, "The level of competition was incredible and everyone involved enjoyed spending the weekend at one of the world’s top cable parks."
