The MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour will make its first-ever appearance in Colorado Springs Saturday. Pro wakeboarders Zane Schwenk, Austin Hair, Steel Lafferty, Daniel Powers and others will be competing for prize money. The athletes will perform rail tricks and aerial stunts, while being pulled on the water by the official PWT towboat, the MasterCraft X-Star, at a speed of approximately 25mph.
Not familiar with wakeboarding? Think of the amazing performance of Shaun White at the Vancouver Olympics. Add water. One wakeboarder has landed a 1080 on the Tour. Also watch for X-Games veterans.
"We've added a live music element and built an interactive entertainment stage to create the world's largest wake party," said Director of Sales and Marketing Sean Dishman. It will run from 5-8 pm and include finals, a big-air challenge and a double up contest.
