Pro Wakeboard Tour 2010: Season Begins In Acworth Georgia
On May 20th, the Pro Wakeboard Tour of 2010 will launch in Acworth, Georgia. The exhilarating event attracts wakeboarders and wakeboarding fans from around the world.
The world's best wakeboarders are off to Acworth, Georgia for the start of the Pro Wakeboard Tour's 2010 season. The extreme water-sports action is scheduled between May 20 and May 22, on the waters of Lake Allatoona at Dallas Landing Park.
Acworth is stop No. 1 out of a series of five stops. Competitors will fight to collect points and win the Pro Wakeboard Tour title. Points are accumulated based on final placement at each tour stop and the wakeboarder with the most points at the end of the season is granted the PWT title.
“We’re stoked to get the season started,” said the defending Pro Tour titlist, Harley Clifford. “Acworth is a great site, the crowd is wild and there’s no better place to kick off the Pro Tour.”
During the event, riders compete in a series of elimination rounds by performing 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.
A panel of judges decides the scores and which competitors will advance on to the next round.
The MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour will wrap-up the event on Saturday evening from 5-8 p.m., with the Main Event. The Main Event will feature Pro Men’s finals, a double up contest and a big-air challenge off the kicker.
Some of the top riders competing in Acworth include the defending Pro Tour titlist and 2009 Rookie of the Year, Harley Clifford; four-time X Games gold medalist, Danny Harf; and the only rider ever to land a 1080 in a contest, Rusty Malinoski.
The PWT also offers fans great food, autograph signings, and chances to win prizes. Additionally, many people enjoy shopping for boats, wakeboards, wakeskates, or the latest in wakeboarding and surfing fashion.
Following Acworth, Georgia, the 2010 Pro Wakeboard Tour will move to Fort Worth, Tex., on June 10-12.
