As if this summer hasn't been wet enough, come check out 75 of the top wakeboarders (whose sport is kind of like waterskiing on a skateboard) from across the U.S. as they compete to earn a spot on Team USA at Wake Nation's USA Wakeboard National Championships. Boarders who can perfect their double-back rolls and double S bends may also be eligible to represent their country at the Wakeboard World Championships being held in Korea. Wake up early because the preliminaries kick off Thursday at 8 a.m. Finals start at 2 p.m. Saturday. A $10 admission gets you access to the preliminaries and the finals. Children under 5 get in for free.
