New this year! Pro wakeboarder Steel Lafferty, named 2017 Wakeboarder of the Year, former tennis pro and Olympian Taylor Dent, and Dallas Mavericks center Dwight Powell will also play in the round robin completion.

The event takes place rain or shine. Spectator tickets to the tournament are $20 for adults and youth, and free for children age 3 and younger.
