This is the 5th year of the College Wakeboard Championships, with past winners including 2010 Texas, 2011 South Florida, 2012, Chico State, and 2013 Arizona State. Arizona State believes they can be the first team to repeat. Will someone take them down and upset the current top ranked team?
Each team will have 7 men and 1 female rider to compete head to head with the other teams. The format will be a bracket style much like the NCAA. The highest ranked team to sign up will ride against the lowest ranked and so on.
This year will have the individual College Wakeboard Champion for Intermediate, Advanced, Open and Womens divisions. This is only open to athletes who competed at a regional qualifier.
Riding will kick off at Noon on Thursday April 3rd and end at 6pm. There will be action on the water all weekend with teams and individuals battling it out to claim the title of best in the nation.
The event is free to attend for spectators. There will be lots going on from lake cruises, to outdoor parties to great riding. The Montelogo Village has so much to offer as well with restaurants, bars, and gambling. There is something for everyone, and something for all ages.
