Win an Industry Wake Parks Large Kicker for your Home Wake Park!
This year we will be giving away a large kicker to the wake park with the highest rankings at the end of the 2015 season.
It is really easy how it all works. When you enter a stop of the Grassroots Tour you fill out an entry form and list your home wake park.
At each stop the top 10 riders in each division gain ranking points. Eg 100 for first place, 80 for second, etc. These points count towards your personal ranking points and also go towards your local home wake park.
At the end of the year the park with the most points wins the Red Bull Harbour Reach Kicker. It will be the very same kicker that is used in Red Bull Harbour Reach on 25th July 2015!
The winning kicker is an Industry Wake Parks large kicker and is worth £3,500! Read more
