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 and Malibu Boats. WSA is the place to grab a new board or boat; the home of top industry brands like Malibu and Axis Boats and Doomswell Wakesurfers.
In most competitive/ professional wakesurfing events you will find the categories: Juniors, Amateur, Outlaw and Professional. For our fun and family friendly event, our categories include: Juniors (12 and Younger), 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.
Board Rules– “Surf-Style” boards only. No separate Skim divisions for 2018. Men and women competing in the Beginner Division may use whatever board they want- surf, skim, longboard, or hybrid
