2011 National Points Championships in Tampa Sept8-11
This year this event will take place during the same time span as Surf Expo in Orlando, Florida. Surf Expo runs from Thur-Sat while Championship qualifying rounds will be held at McCormick’s just 45min down I-4 in Seffner, Florida. Finals will be Sunday the day after Surf Expo finishes up!
On Saturday Night after Expo has finished McCormick’s will be hosting a structure only comp. Registration will take place the week prior to the event and Every 2 tower or full size park is encouraged to enter a team for this event. Because of the head-2-head format only 16 teams will be available to enter. If any park would like to reserve a spot please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The structure only event will pit park teams of 3 wakeboarders and a wakeskater against each other simultaneously. Best team moves on! Talk to your park owners and managers to see if they will sponsor your team for the first event of it’s kind. The team registration fee is $125 and 100% of the entry money will be given back to the top teams.
Sunday the finals will take place which makes it convenient for teams and park managers coming to Florida for both Surf Expo and the Championship event. This event will shatter last years record for the largest cable event in the United States. Because of the scheduling we hope fans from around the world will come out to see the action on the back end of their trip top Florida. The 2011 championship expects to be a much closer race than last year in the inaugural season. In 2010 Texas Ski Ranch dominated at their home park. This year the four Florida teams will not have to travel across the country and will also be better prepared for the event. Obviously, there is a home course advantage as riders are familiar with the layout of sliders and kickers. At McCormick’s, the advantage becomes even greater because they are one of only two cables in the country that rotates clockwise. Riders generally prefer to do air tricks to the outside of the cable, which is the opposite when the cable runs in the opposite direction. McCormick’s was able to overcome this disadvantage last year to finish second in the team scores. 2011 Will turn the tables and give the advantage to not only Team McCormick’s, but all four Florida parks.
