A Successful Texas Nationals!

The weekend of April 20th brought a brand new event to the wake scene at Texas Ski Ranch, including a unique style of competition and a crowd of collegiate riders from all over the region. Kicking off with Casino Night on Friday the 20th- winners walking away with Liquid Force wakeboards, bindings, and other swag from our sponsors- moving into a Sylver Spoon Crawfish Boil on Saturday, and wrapping up the competition on Sunday, the weekend was packed full!

Check out the event video below!

Over 100 riders of all ages and skill levels traveled to New Braunfels, Texas, to compete in the first annual “Texas Nationals” and Collegiate Classic, including Liquid Force rider Tanar Pigrenet, Oklahoma natives Brady Patry and Conrad McIntosh, and of course the legend- the king of the cable himself- defending his title at his home park, new dad Tom Fooshee.

The weekend’s pro level competition for both boat and cable had a prize purse of $10,000 at stake, bringing with it some hot and heavy riding with a few new twists to the comp format itself. Rather than traditional and features only style riding that so many of us have become accustomed to, we wanted to see the best of the best with a combined riding style that also pleased the crowd. Jam style format, with air-tricks sections, and scoring “best line” in each section of the cable. It took aspects from both the traditional style of riding as well as the jam format features only and section-based competition runs to combine into some of the most impressive heats we’ve seen. Plus, rather than simply paying out the top three riders, it was left open to the top six, giving everyone a chance to claim part of that purse. Open/Amateur divisions were also available, giving any and everyone an opportunity to come see what these competitions are all about and get people stoked on the upcoming summer season!

Our pro finals heat on the cable was stacked, with Reagan Hills, Conrad McIntosh, Tom Fooshee and Brady Patry making it through Semis, followed up by Tyler Sommer, Kaden Voges, Jack Dorrestijn and Nick Bowers in the consolidation round, competing for places five and six. Top podium spot was ultimately taken by Fooshee, with Patry and McIntosh coming in a close second and third.

But that wasn’t the end of it! Riders at the collegiate level joined us for the weekend to compete in this regional qualifier for their nationals competition in Louisiana, bringing collegiate level competitors into light and an even bigger audience to TSR. While the pros weren’t busy battling it out on the cable, these college competitors were giving it all they had behind a loaded down fire-engine red 22MXZ- thanks to Texas Malibu!

Sunday switched things up a bit, throwing the college riders on the cable and opening up the boat to open and pro riders. The pro boat podium stayed open to the top five riders, giving more opportunity for a piece of the pie (the pie being the prize purse, of course) and all of the riders threw some incredible runs. Tom Fooshee ended up on top of the podium twice throughout the weekend, taking the top spot in our pro boat division the day after winning pro cable. He was closely followed with impressive runs thrown by Logan Crouch (2nd), Tyler Sommer (3rd), Jack Dorrestijn (4th), and Parker Swope (5th).

The weekend ended up including 20 different divisions of riders, including all level-based collegiate divisions, which means we ended up with over 60 opportunities to get up on the podium. TSR could not have done it with the help of each and every one of our sponsors- including Pacifico Beer (Title Sponsor), Liquid Force, Malibu Boats, Axis Wake, Texas Malibu, Hooey, BoardCo, SheShreds, Billabong, O’Neill, SunBum, Sandbox, Globe, Electric, SeaDek and Thuggies. Huge thank you to our killer announcer, Mark on the Mic Heger, our team of judges- Ryan Sanders, Evan Washington, Josh Pennell, Cory Miller, Ross Rimenschnieder, Austin Blakey, Beau Goforth, and JB O’Neil. Also a huge thank you to all of the Texas State Wake team officers for their help, to all of the TSR staff, and of course- all of the riders and guests. Texas Ski Ranch is incredibly excited to throw this event next year and we hope even more people are able to make it out! See ya next year!! (More pics to be posted soon!)

TONIGHT ON THE BEACH- @theheartsmtx is hosting a benefit concert to send their leadership team to a conference in California, and we’re blessed to be hosting the event! Silent Auction, live music, and a beach and bar combo- it’s the place to be! *there will be an admission fee to get through the back doors of the lobby tonight after 7pm! All of the income from tonight will be going toward their cause! #Repost @theheartsmtx ・・・ Write it down, etch it in stone, paint it on your walls (maybe not that far) and tell your friends! Whatever you do, save the date for RECharge because it is going to be an amazing event and we would love to see you there! . In 2017, THEHEART was able to raise the money to take the entire Leadership Team to Hillsong Conference in California. The conference was created by Hillsong to champion the cause of the local church. That's us! . We came back recharged with mission, vision, purpose, and drive to become the best leaders that God has created us to be. We were able to see immediate fruit from the passion that ignited inside of us and put it into practice already this year! . In 2018, the growth at THEHEART hasn't slowed, it's gained momentum. There is more lives being changed than ever. God is on the move in this city, in this community, in this church. We want to be stewards of what God is doing and the opportunities that he is offering to us. . We believe that by making a way for our Leadership Team (and our new members!) to get to Hillsong Conference in NYC will radically change the lives of those who go. It will open our minds to see more ways of how to do ministry, give is new skills and insights. . But, more than that, we are praying for #ActivatedSpirits as we venture further into what God is doing here. We strongly believe that by going to Hillsong Conference in NYC, we will continue to grow in the areas needed for us to grow in spiritually, relationally, organizationally, as well as our leadership. . God isn't done with what He is doing through THEHEART! And, we can know that because there is still so much more to be done. By saying "YES!" to REcharge, you take your first step toward growing the very fabric of this church!
