Following the final rounds of action on Saturday, fans can enjoy two exhibition events—the Double Up Contest and Big-Air Kicker Contest. Both events will feature top athletes performing exciting and innovative new tricks that are not typically attempted in a traditional contest setting.
In addition to all the action on the water, fans and residents can enjoy plenty of great food, athlete autograph signings, chances to win freebies, product sampling, and shopping at the most cutting-edge stores for water-sports equipment. At the Pro Tour’s entertainment stage, guests can also catch athlete interviews, color commentators and interactive live music.
