The 2010 SFWA Showdown is complete and was a huge success. On what can only be described as a perfect day weather wise, the crowd was treated to some amazing riding.

In addition the Just-In-Time Best Trick was awarded to Andrew Fortenberry for his wake to wake frontside big spin, and the Just-In-Time Worst Crash was awarded to Jacob Krigbaum for his toeside frontroll to faceplant.
Everytime we hold an event I leave being wowed by the level of riding. It is amazing what amatuers are doing behind the Mastercraft X-star. I can tell you first hand that today’s Professional riders have a crop of young riders right behing them pushing them and threatening to take their spots. Judging from the large crowd at the event, the wake community recognizes this as well.
In addition, the sponsors were super, providing an excellent opportunity to see the newest in wake related products. The SFWA winch was in full effect pulling those not competing in the event. So not a moment was lost during the day. Finally, for the first time our event was streamed live via the internet as well (thank you specifically to Nick Mohnacky for bringing the SFWA into the 21st century)
These events are not possible without our sponsors so a huge thank you to South Florida Mastercraft, Motion Watersports, Arrigo Dodge, CWB, Nike 6.0, Oakley, Hurley, Enoch Surfboards, DNA Energy Drinks, Vitamin Water, Just-In-Time Window Tinting, NachoBizness, Alaska Shaved Ice and LTS Wakeschool.
Finally a big shout out to the volunteers for the event, everyone who helped out (and there are too many to list but they know who they are) helped to make the event run as smooth as possible.
