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 Champion

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.
