Registration is Open, Late fees begin Aug 15th for NPC
ORLANDO, FL – Riders have been competing and qualifying since June at 17 different parks across the United States. The top five riders from each park in seven different divisions have now earned a spot to compete at Orlando Watersports Complex September 11-15. Professional and amateur riders will compete in a traditional cable wakeboard format to win both individual and team titles for their home park. This Year the National Points Chase (NPC) has also partnered with Wake Park Triple Crown (WPTC) presented by Alliance, Monster and Nautique boats. The WPTC will be hosting feature only and women's competitions during the same event.
Amateur riders have already qualified through their local parks during the National Points Chase. Pro Riders may have qualified the same way or they may qualify through an opening round held on Friday 9/13. For the WPTC - Feature Only and women's divisions riders do not need to pre qualify to compete. The combined event should have over 300 registered riders and will be the largest cable wakeboard event to date. The entire event will be sanctioned by the WWA.
Orlando Watersports Complex (OWC) looks to be the favorite for the team portion of the competition. Riders compete individually but they also accrue team points throughout the event. Last year OWC traveled to Waco, Texas and upset two time defending champs, Texas Ski Ranch. In 2013 one hundred different individuals have taken part in the OWC summer series, more than any other park in the country. Add that depth to the home site advantage and the other parks will have to be at their best to have a chance to steal the title from OWC. For images from each park, look no further than instagram and the hashtag #pointschase. Riders from every site can upload their images and hashtag them so friends across the country can see what is going on at other parks.
Nationals Points Chase
Founded in 2010, The National Points Chase was created to give young wakeboarders and wakeskaters the opportunity to not only better their skills, but also compete against their peers in a fun environment. The weekly series is hosted at full size cable wake parks across the united states. The final event of the season, the National Points Championship is almost always the largest event in the wake industry by number of participants. For more information please goto PointsChase.com.
