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.
Straight from competing at LAC, riders refueled and jumped right over to the Provo Beach facilities to get some practice runs in before Prime Stop #4. Provo is a top choice wave for many riders which allowed for some seriously good riding! FULL VIDEO AT THE END.
Nick Gust (Utah) was able to secure the 1st place finish in the Masters Flowboard division and put pressure back on Chipman and the others going into Prime Stop #5 hosted in Ogden, Utah. Jordan Walter (Iowa) continued his FLOW Tour campaign for a JR title and added 1,000 points to his overall rankings.
DT Birthday boy battled through a tough field and took the cake (again) in Pro BB. I guess you can have your cake and eat it too, at least on your birthday anyways.
Pro flowboard division action came down to Scotty Callens (Washington), Sean Silveira (Florida) and local stylish sensation TK Barreto (@twosdays).
The CCI-sponsored rider from Washington, put together some amazing runs! “Scotty took it next level, earned himself that Golden Ticket Slot at Nationals,” mentions Muller.
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.
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!
