Spring Fling Freeride – Kirby’s School of Wake
May 17 - May 19
The 2019 Spring Fling is a fun, pre-season wakeboard event designed to create community for fellow wakeboard and wakesurfing families. Wakeboarders of all ages and abilities are invited to dust off their tricks for summer. It is great for the whole family to relax and enjoy a pre-season getaway. To add a competitive twist to the weekend, there will also be a video submission contest.
Be sure to bring your family, food, your wakeboard boat, and your gear. No boat? No worries! Discounted lessons are available with Kirby for $75/30 minute set. Don’t forget a wetsuit if you have one. There will be freeriding all day Saturday. Riding will resume early Sunday morning with Wake Church and the awards presentation concluding the event at 1:00pm.
Date: Saturday May 17 – May 19
