The event was a huge success as boarders from across the nation participated in the event.
Southern Plains festival has been dedicated to help grow Wakeboard and Wake surf for the past two decades. Now SPF has seen the need to also develop the younger wakeboard athletes. SPF has committed with WWA to showcase the younger Jr. Men and Jr Women Pro’s divisions. The mission is to highlight our younger athletes and give the Jr. Pro’s an event that they can claim as their own. SPF was this last weekend, which sets between Nationals in Georgia and Worlds hosted in Portugal. This provides a great practice event between the two.
“We had 65 competitors from as far as California, and other states like Florida, Missouri, Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. Friday Practice Pulls – Saturday Tournament – Sunday Funday with the Pro Riders. National riders came right from Callaway Gardens in Georgia to compete in our event including our local Jr Pro Riders Stella Tracy who placed 1st in Jr Pro Women and Women’s Surf and Cameron Lewis placing 1st in Grom and 2nd in Grom Surf at SPF.
Nautique Pro Surf Rider Drew Drennan attended and gave lessons to up-and-coming riders as well as Kane Ward Jr Pro Rider. The competition was very close, and we are so proud of each and every rider. The future of wakeboarding is strong, these young athletes are very dedicated and committed to mastering their sport,” April Roberts said.
Sammy’s Surf Shop, Sammy & April Roberts coordinate the event along with support from a great team and many sponsors.
