SAN MARCOS, TX (September 18th, 2007) - The Hot Tamales Rock-N-Ride College Wakeboard Tour comes to Texas State University in San Marcos on Saturday, September 29th. It's the fifth and final stop of the series which has already visited Syracuse University, University of North Carolina, Vanderbilt University and the University of Cincinnati. This event is FREE to the public and will take place in the shadows of Bobcat Stadium located at 1100 Aquarena Springs Drive.
The development of the high-speed, gas-powered winch is one of the newest and most exciting progressions in wakeboarding's young history. It has given riders, who are pulled by winches, the ability to take their sport to the streets with the use of portable pools, separated by rails and sliders. Called a Pool-Gap or a Rail Jam, this is action sports up-close and in-your-face and it's as exciting for the riders as it is for spectators.
Scheduled to perform at the wakeboard rail jam will be Liquid Force Wakeboard pro team rider Tom Fooshee and Byerly Wakeskate pro team rider Brett Little. Both Texas based riders are regulars on the Pro Wakeboard Tour and are featured regularly in national industry publications Alliance Wakeboard and Wakeboarding Magazine. Fooshee is featured on the cover of the August 2007 issue. They are also both full time students at Texas State University. Tom and Bret will be joined by several other top local riders and additional pro riders representing the Hyperlite Pro Wakeboard Team.
The pro wakeboard set-up in San Marcos will feature three portable pools filled with over 50,000 gallons of water and connected with a "kicker" ramp and a 30 foot slider rail and powered by a high-speed winch, all provided by Orlando based action sports producers, Step-Up Productions.
This FREE action sports demo is a program of the LBJ Student Center sponsored by the SACA. Action starts at 7:00pm.
