Board Up has announced dates for this year's premiere action sports festival: April 9-10, 2010. Board Up Miami will once again feature the world's best wakeboarders as they compete in a Pro Am format for prize money (soon to be announced). Riders are starting to commit to the contest and registration is available. In addition to wakeboarding, Board Up will host a skate contest, have BMX demos, swimsuit fashion shows, wakeskating, wakesurfing, kiteboarding and live music.
Board Up Miami is a pro-am wakeboard competition that allows the world's best pros to compete against some of the top amateurs looking for a chance to score their first professional contracts and the glamour that comes with it. Board Up is the signature event of a weekend that begins on Thursday, April 8th with a training day for all riders, and Friday, April 9th with the elimination rounds for both wake and skate. Amateur winners of the elimination rounds (one of the nation's largest competitions) automatically get a shot to ride with the pros on Saturday, April 10th at Board Up.
Rider registration is available online via the event website at boardup.net for $150. All riders receive a participant pack and free admission for the family to all festivities.
A portion of the event's proceeds will go to the H2O's Foundation, Helping Others Swim.
