Parks Bonifay wanted to create a Double Up only contest that provided the best riders and their drivers 20 minutes to showcase their skills under the best conditions. To get the smoothest water conditions, the event will go down on one day during a four-day window from May 4th–7th. The event is an invitational with twelve of the world’s best riders being towed behind what Parks claims is, “the biggest and best wake for a double-up, the MasterCraft X-Star.”
Over $10,000 of value in prizes and money (provided by Red Bull, Fox Riding Co. and MasterCraft) will be broken down between two categories -- Biggest Air and the Best Trick. Additionally, there will be an unforgettable awards ceremony and after-party on Friday night, May 7th at Eye Spy in Downtown Orlando presented by Red Bull and co-sponsored by Kettle One.
This unique event format will consist of a morning call everyday at 9 a.m. to let the competitors and media know if the event is on or not. The riders and media will be mailed an invitation with all necessary info and a number to RSVP.

Throughout the week there will be Event Calls at 9 a.m. to let competitors and Media know if the event is on for that day. Once the event has been officially called, competitors and media will have a one-hour window to get to the event site.
Invited riders and media will be informed during their morning “Event Call.” This top-secret location will be within minutes from downtown Orlando.
This event was dreamed up from many jam sessions and late night strategy meetings between Parks, Hayes from Red Bull and the rest of the Pointless crew of riders. With support from Red Bull, Fox Riders Co. and MasterCraft, this dream will soon turn into reality.
