You ride all day for free — the argument could end right there. After all, do you really need more reason to attend one of the six stops on Liquid Force’s 2011 Free for All cable tour? Just in case countless comped laps at some of the country’s best cable parks doesn’t have you convinced, we compiled five additional reasons that should send you rushing to check the 2011 Free for All schedule at wakeboardingmag.com/freeforall2011.
Save your cash for gas
The free ride doesn’t stop at free riding. Chipotle will keep you fueled for a full day of shredding with free food and drinks. And every participant will score free giveaways from Liquid Force and fellow Free for All sponsors Skull Candy, Monster Energy, Spy Optic, Sanuk, Supra Boats, New Era, Vertra clothing and TransWorld WAKEBOARDING.
Ride alongside Liquid Force pros
When else are you going to share a start dock with the likes of Bob Soven, Shawn Watson and Amber Wing? The inclusive nature of Free for All means you won’t just watch your favorite pros ride, you’ll interact with them too. New to cable riding? Ask 2010 Wake Park World Series champ Tom Fooshee for his best tip on hitting a kicker.
Test-ride new Liquid Force gear
Each cable park on the 2011 Free for All tour is an official Liquid Force test center, so you’ll get to demo a full arsenal of Liquid Force gear. Take a spin on the Witness Grind wakeboard, which is designed to withstand the rigors of hitting a cable park’s bounty of rails. Then rock Danny Hampson’s Obscura pro model wakeskate. All the while, protect your head with Liquid Force’s full line of helmets.
Teach a friend to ride
The Free for All’s everybody-rides mentality makes it the ideal atmosphere to introduce your family and friends to your favorite sport. Plus, five of the six Free for All parks are outfitted with Rixen’s Lil Bro, a two-tower cable setup designed specifically to lessen the learning curve for beginning riders.
Ride new parks
This year, Free for All gives you the chance to be a cable park pioneer. The tour stops at Cowtown Wakepark and Wake Nation Houston, two parks that celebrate their grand openings this summer.
