Final Leg of the 2011 US FLOW Tour in Pennsylvania
The Final Leg of the 2011 US FLOW Tour dropped into Pennsylvania with stop #12 on Thursday at Split Rock, which features an indoor FlowRider ® Single wave machine. Split Rock was in tune, hosting the prelude to the National Finals to be held over the weekend at Camel Beach Waterpark in the Poconos.
With valuable points available at this AA event, the nation’s top flowriding talent was on hand with 70 competitors in attendance to chase down several overall season races running down to the wire. Shaun Hancock had a standout performance winning both the Master’s Bodyboard and FlowBoard divisions and Andrew O’Conner took down the Junior Bodyboard division.
In the season ending push to the top slots, Nick Nguyen extended his unbeaten streak to 12 straight with a convincing win in Expert Bodyboard, and Sean Silveira continues his top form in his push to a 4th straight FLOW Tour National Title. Vanessa Arroyo continues to excel as she chases down her first National Title in the Female Flowboard division, looking to unseat Amanda McCormick in the seasons top slot.
The staff at Split Rock was on fire as well, as Chuck Dickenson’s staff put on a great show for the competitors with incredible offerings and activities extended to all competitors and families alike. With the support of venues like Split Rock and owners like Chuck, these events simply would not happen.
Special thanks, as always, go to the FLOW Tour season sponsors Versa Grip Traction, Wave Loch and Wave Loch Flowboards, WCB, Victory, and Deuce Brand. Event sponsors were aplenty with Liquid Lightning, Religion Surf and Skate, Original Watermen, 940 Snowboards, Pocono Whitewater, DA’s Pub and Eatery, Skirmish Paintball, Kinetic, Timberline Ski Shop, and Flow House LBI all contributing to the success of the event.
The National Championships will take place starting this Saturday, Aug 13th in Camel Beach in Tannersville, PA. We hope to see you all there!
