Hydrous Points Chase
Hydrous is excited to announce the 2016 points chase qualifier schedule.
Like in the years past the Hydrous Weekly Points Chase Qualifying Series is a grass roots style competition where riders of all skills and ages have the opportunity to compete on a weekly basis throughout the summer in efforts to make the Hydrous Points Chase Team. Over the 4-week series the top 3 riders from each division will earn the chance to compete at the National Points Chase Final for Team Hydrous which will be held at OWC in Orlando, FL August4-7, 2016.
This year we have decided to combine both parks to have just one Hydrous Team. This should help to create a better competition for the competitors as well as to help fill a full team to compete at the National Points Chase Championship. Each week will alternate parks starting with Hydrous Allen and ending at Hydrous Little Elm.
Event Fee: $30 per event or $100 for all 4 weeks
About the National Point Chase
Founded in 2010, The National Points Chase was created to give young wakeboarder’s and wakeskater’s the opportunity to not only better their skills, but also compete against their peers in a fun environment. Two weekly series (Traditional & Features Only) are hosted at cable wake parks across the United States. The final event of the season, the National Points Championship is the largest cable wakeboard event in the United States.
Last year, over 35 parks hosted qualifying series’. This year it is expected to increase to around 50 locations, providing more qualifying opportunities for riders throughout the U.S. The series’ hosted by the parks will not only qualify individual riders, but also a team to represent their respective park at the championship event. Full-size parks will be allowed to host both series’ while two tower parks are limited to the features only series.
OWC will be defending both team titles on their home site and will be the early favorites to repeat as champions in 2016. They became the first team to win both of the team titles for traditional and features just last year. “OWC will be tough to beat, they have such a great crew of riders and the support they give each other shows on the water,” said Tom Fooshee, who has led Texas Ski Ranch to three team titles. “I know there are many teams around the country that are just as hungry to win a team title this year.”
Professional athletes will have the opportunity to compete for the largest prize purse in the history of the event. The Nautique WWA Wake Park National Championships will once again be a scheduled stop on the WWA Wake Park World Series. This year amateur riders will earn a better seed by competing here at the national level, however, it will become a qualifying event in the future for riders wanting to compete in the WWA Wake Park World Championships.
