FlowRider & WhiteWater West Present the 2020 FLOW Tour Series
The US FLOW Tour has not only been a mainstay in the flowboarding scene but a true driver of the sport. This Tour is flowboarding’s premier competitive platform with divisions for the world’s best riders along with divisions that are suited for newcomers to the sport. Tours are held in Asia, Europe, & USA.
The 2020 US FLOW Tour will feature 4 Prime events and 7-9 Pro/Am events across the country. In years past there have been many more Prime events, but this year with a consolidated calendar we are committed to having higher-quality events with more competitors traveling to all stops. Competitors can save money throughout the year while simultaneously increasing their chances to qualify for the championship events.
During the months of April, June, July, and August, competitors will compete in the four-event series that will take place in venues such as Silver Rapids Waterpark in Kellogg, Idaho, FlowRider Utah, Tidal Cove at JW Marriott in Miami, and H20BX in North Carolina. At each stop, competitors will strive to achieve top rankings. Competitors who earn top spots in the four qualifying competitions will obtain a slot in the US National Championships, hosted by Epic Waters, the largest indoor waterpark in Texas, on August 8th & 9th. Winners in the Pro Flowboard, Pro Bodyboard, and Women’s Flowboard division will be crowned the US FLOW Tour Champions and inherit the responsibility of representing the United States team as they take on the best Flowboarders from around the globe at the World Flowboarding Championships (WFC).
The 2020 World Flowboarding Championships are currently scheduled for November 6th – 8th at Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark in Grand Prairie, Texas. This US Tour finale will attract the best riders on the planet, and this venue really knows how to extend the Texas hospitality. American Resort Management, Epic Waters’ operator, always puts their best efforts into the FLOW Tour events.
The various Pro/Am events’ dates and locations are TBD, but will offer some fun, friendly competition intermixed with the main Prime events.
Lastly, the FLOW Tour will be managed by someone new this year – Jake Fassett. Jake has managed venues, ridden a ton of waves, knows the FlowRider team members, has judged FLOW Tour events, and has generally be involved in the sport since 2012, so he is not really new, just new to being part of the internal FlowRider Team.
“We are pumped to have Jake jump into this role. His experience on and off the wave with our team is extensive and will absolutely pay off. Jake is committed to making the 2020 Tour super fun for riders and fans,” says Rob Chalfant, former FLOW Tour Manager/Current Ops & Materials Manager.
