Summer for us is always kicked off with the first stop of the Pro Wakeboard Tour at Dallas Landing in Acworth, Georgia. The Tour always brings out the best in Acworth every year. It introduces wakeboarding to people and families. We have so many people stop by the Ambush and BuyWake.com tent asking our team about ways to get involved in wakeboarding. The beach and shoreline is filled with all different kinds of people, whether it’s their 5th year in a row being out there to families stumbling across the contest by accident on a random Saturday. Not only is there a great turn out on the beach, but the city of Acworth puts on an amazing block party in the heart of downtown every year. They have so much going on into the night with live bands, food and booze stands along with all the restaurants putting on amazing specials. Each year the city of Acworth throws down a solid job of hosting the first stop of the tour.
Anthony’s VIP weekend started inside Ambush on Friday, May 18 when he was chosen as our PWT VIP among many other hopefuls who entered the sweepstakes by checking in via Foursquare at The Shop at 7:00 PM.
“I was super stoked to win, just to to be going,” Anthony said. “I missed it last year so I wanted to make sure there was no way I was going to miss it this year.”
Anthony and his girlfriend, Alli, spent the following Saturday mingling with wakeboarding’s elite and even scored a private tour on one of the five Nautique G23s in existence. The long day ended that evening in downtown Acworth where Anthony was able to snag a picture with BuyWake.com Pro Rider, Harley Clifford moments before he hit the podium to claim his victory.
The Acworth King Of Wake Pro Wakeboard Tour Stop for 2012 was dubbed a huge success. The weather was great, the riding was progressive, and the spectators turned out in record numbers. Check out all the madness that went down inside the confines of Dallas Landing.
