DFW Surf’s annual grassroots wakesurfing competition in North Texas. Each year local wakesurfers gather and put their skills to the test. A grassroots wakesurfing contest means that this is completely designed for the amateur wakesurfing crowd. With very few professional athletes in the sport there is a need for a friendly competition for the average guy and gal who like to go wakesurfing with their friends on the weekends.
Special thanks to the headlining sponsor and your event towboat- Waterski America. WSA is the place to grab a new board or boat; the home of top industry brands like Malibu and Axis Boats. Special thanks to Patrick Morrison at North Richland Hills Autonation Chevrolet for supplying the perfect trucks to pull your towboat and special thanks to Kona Brewing Company for the cold beers after a long day at the lake. Without these headlining sponsors we would not be able to have great events like this year after year.
In most competitive/ professional wakesurfing events you will find the categories: Juniors, Amateur, Outlaw (also called Semi-Pro) and Professional (or Open). For our fun and family friendly event, our categories include: Grom (6-9 Years), Juniors (9-12 Years), Beginner (1st or 2nd year wakesurfer, no tricks), Amateur (intermediate wakesurfer- a 360 spin will land you on the podium), Masters (Ages 40 +), Open Longboard (7 Foot Minimum Board Length) and Outlaw.
Rules and Scoring– Surfers will be judged according to 3 categories: STYLE, INTENSITY and TRICKS. Each surfer will have 5 total minutes (unlimited falls) of surf time. Instead of a specific course design and 2 falls max, the itinerary here is no pressure. While you do have unlimited falls, more style points will be awarded to the surfer who surfs continuously.
