After 5 successful years The Board Bash is back for 2017 to celebrate our 6 year anniversary in epic fashion! 2016 brought 90 Athletes and over 2,000 spectators from all over the Midwest to Heath Beach making The Board Bash the largest wakeboarding festival in the Midwest.
The Board Bash will once again be pulled by the award winning 2017 Super Air Nautique G23, serving up the biggest wake in the sport allowing participating athletes the opportunity to pull off the run of there lives. Lally's Marine will also be on site with a large pro shop stocked full of the latest 2017 gear from Hyperlite and Reef.
Friday, The Board Bash will host practice behind the Board Bash's G23 so you can dial in your winning run on the contest course behind the event boat. Following practice and The Hyperlite Experience, stick around and check out the invitation only Board Bash Rail Jam, made possible by Swanton Welding and Frank Dyke. Some of the regions best rail riders will be throwing down our 65' rooftop rail for the 2017 title and cash prize. Following the rail jam live music will help us unwind in preparation for Saturday mornings main event.
Saturday mornings registration starts promtply at 7:30am, our fast growing Beginner division kicks off the event at 8am, followed by the rest of the divisions before we take a lunch break and watch the Pro's blow your mind during our Board Bash Pro Exhibition.
We estimate the contest will wrap up around 6pm and will be immediately followed by a high flying professional BMX demo by from our friends at The Right Direction that you don't want to miss. We will then crown our Board Bash Event Champions at the Awards Ceremony at center stage.
