The Gulf Coast Wakeboarding Association along with M2 Wakeboard World present the Inaugural H-Town Showdown Wakeboarding tournament.
Come test your skills against some of the best riders in the state and compete for cash and prizes. We will have activities planned to entertain both riders and spectators, so come on out for a day of sick riding, good music and get some of today’s newest gear by riding, raffle or buy it from the Pro Shop.
Proceeds of tournament will benefit Texas Adaptive Aquatics, a non-profit organization that teaches water sports to disabled children and adults.
