Win A Large Kicker for your Home Wake Park!

Kicker Comp 14

Park Incentives 2014

Win an Industry Wake Parks Kicker for your Home Wake Park

Industry Wake Parks are giving every one of the tour host venues the chance to win one of their rather sick Large kickers (or credit equivalent) for the park team of riders that comes up with the biggest combined overall score.

It is simple how it works: a riders gains ranking points if they finish in the top 10 at any of the stops. They get points for themselves and also for their home wake park. At the end of the 2014 tour, the park with the most ranking points will win the kicker!

So, there is every incentive for you S2 Wake Parks and your crews to hit up as many stops as possible and that brand spanking new obstacle will be yours!

Small Print
- The wake park can not sell the kicker
- If the park already have 2 kickers or want some different, they can have the credit equivalent towards a different Industry Wake Parks obstacle
- Riders can not change their home park mid season
- Home park must be hosting one of the Grassroots Tour Stops in 2014
