WHAT: Three categories of competition (Boat, Big Air and Park) will determine the best overall wakeboarder to be crowned Red Bull Wake Open Champion. The Boat segment will be towed by the 22-foot Malibu Wakesetter MXZ, and showcase an innovative, rider-influenced format.  For the next two days, downtown Tampa will house the Big Air and Park competition as fans will watch riders launch off a 50-foot ramp to see who can pull the best trick. The new Sesitec System 2.0 will tow riders at precise speeds through a rail park within short distances. This environmentally friendly cableway along with the boat will provide the ultimate pull to encourage riders to perform tricks never seen before in competition.
