The 2013 Shrinkage Showdown Wakeboard Competition takes place at Eagle Point starting at 9 am on Saturday (Sept 28th). Competition starts with the beginners, followed by five more classes in this order: Intermediate (no inverts but can clear both wakes), Advanced (1-3 inverts), Outlaw (4 or more inverts), Wakeskate, Double-up (depending on interest). Each class is allowed one fall.
Some vocabulary: an invert is when a rider goes upside down while in the air. A wakeskate is a combination of a wakeboard and skateboard. This board doesn’t have bindings, is smaller, and is covered with grip tape.
Pre-registration is available and registration at the site begins at 7:30 am. Competitors must be WWA or INT members to compete (you can buy a day membership for $30; or yearly, for $60). Proof of membership is necessary on the day of competition.
The event is sponsored by Boater’s Choice, Brooklyn. The event organizer is Eric Blasiman, who does sales and marketing for Boater’s Choice. For more information: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/2060548155/efbevent
