FlowRider Utah US FlowRider FLOW Tour Prime #5: Recap and Photo Gallery

The FlowRider®FLOW Tour is ‘flowing’ (yes, these puns are always intended) around the west coast and making appearances at popular locations in the region. Check the schedule on the competitions tab; Flowboarders may be headed to your home wave next!


Kicking off the west coast events was the popular trio of FlowRider locations in Utah- Lindon Aquatics Center (LAC), Provo Beach and FlowRider Utah, Ogden. A core series of events on Tour, year in and year out.

After back to back events, there was a break in competitions as riders made their way North to Ogden to complete the trifecta of events and possibly earn the next golden ticket to the US national championships in Orlando, FL.

Ogden did not disappoint with lots of ride time and a stellar event outing. With Shaun Hancock (venue manager) behind the scenes, you already know it will be a great event.

The Pro Flowboard Finals included the two winners from events #4 & #5 (Taylor and Scott), this time taking on the golden boy with a pocket full of steez, Daniel Tarapchak.  Scott Callens, after having his back against the wall with pressure from Taylor Hales, again (Scott) found himself on top the podium, making that back to back victories on the road in the Pro Flowboard category and stacking a few thousand points towards his Nationals Campaign.

The Pro Bodyboard had a weird finish in the finals, but you had to be there to understand and we will leave it at that.  After a lot of hard work, it finally paid off as the rider from FL, Jon Reese, took down his role model and current champion, Daniel Tarapchak (California).

Amateur riders, Jeffrey Howell (Youth BB, South Carolina), Luke Newman (Youth FB, Florida), Brandon Marks (Jr. BB, South Carolina), Lexi Koefed (Female FB, Nevada) and Cory Woods (Masters/Mens BB, Pennyslvania) all made clean sweep with 1st place finishes at Prime Stops #3,4 & 5!



Moving right along, Flowboarders rolled on over to surf the strip in Las Vegas.  If you don’t know by now, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino (@PhVegas) is home to the ONLY surf simulator in Nevada, let alone the strip.

By common rule, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas…except for the recap of Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino FLOW Tour PRO/Am and contest results!
