Kicking off the season with an extreme sports and music festival, in conjunction with Roadway Productions, University of Texas Wake Team, and 101x this event promises to be the biggest of the year. The event takes place in downtown Austin, in the shadow of the Bob Bullock State History Museum, featuring live music, a wakeboard rail jam, a skateboard contest, freestyle street bike demos, and much more. This is action sports up-close & in-your-face and it's as exciting for the riders as it is for spectators.
The wakeboard and wakeskate rail jam will feature local & professional riders such as Keith Lidberg, Gabe Lucas, Tom Fooshee, Bret Little, Billy Garcia, Brett Hickey, Clint Tompkins, Jesse Landry and many others competing head-to-head in a Rail Jam. These riders are looking to take it to the next level as they will compete for over $2000 in the wakeboarding and wakeskating brackets, including the $1000 Boardstop First Place Prize for the wakeboard bracket.
Not to be outdone, the skateboard competition will include $1250 in prize money, as skaters manual, kickflip and nollie heelflip the Red Bull Manny Mania street setup.

Combine the rail jam with a skateboard competition, freestyle street bike demo, music, great food, graphic artist exhibits, custom boat and wakeboard accessories, wakeboard instructional sessions, a showcase of the latest wake board boats, and much more, you've got what is quickly becoming the ultimate extreme sports festival.
