Victory supplied the Flow tour with KoreDry Surf Shirts and Rash Guards. The Wave Loch FLOW Tour has divisions for bodyboarders and flowboarders, men and women, boys and girls, amateur and professional, young and old. For the past ten years, the Tour has inspired an ever-expanding level of competition among bodyboarders and flowboarders around the United States – and it all comes to a head on the Wave Loch FLOW Tour. The 2010 US Flow Tour began on April 24th in Waterville, AL and, with 16 stops across the nation, is shaping up to be the largest of the series to date. As the biggest national FlowRiding tour in the world, the US tour sets the standard in every way. From the number of competitors and tour stops to the cash and prizes up for grabs, nothing in flowboarding is bigger than this. Single A rated events will be giving out $1000 in cash in the Expert divisions while Double A events will be shelling out $2500. The finals prize will be $5,000 cash. A new addition to the Flow Tour in 2010 will be the advancement of the top flowriders to the World FlowRiding Championships (WFC) at Wave House Sentosa on November 4, 2010. The US FLOW Tour winners (overall top male flowboarder, female flowboarder and bodyboarder) will win a trip to Singapore to represent the US and compete against other regional teams, including Asia and Europe. The top 2 male flowboarders, top female flowboarder and top bodyboarder of the WFC will form the World FlowRider Champions Team and will compete in the International FLOW Championships (IFC) against the International Wave House Teams. The IFC will take place at Wave House Sentosa on November 5-7, 2010. Airfare + Accommodation for the WFC * Wave Loch will pay for the USA FLOW Tour winners airfare and accommodations * All other WFC regions will be responsible to pay for their team’s airfare and hotel accommodations. * Wave House Singapore will host meals and non alcoholic beverages for the WFC and IFC competitors. 2010: The Biggest Flow Tour in the World US Flow Tour 2010The 2010 US Flow Tour is set to kick off soon and is shaping up to be the lrgest of the series to date. As the biggest national flowboard tour in the world, the US tour sets the standard in every way. From the number of competitors and tour stops to the cash and prizes up for grabs, nothing in flowboarding is bigger than this. Single A rated events will be giving out $1000 in cash in the Expert divisions while Double A events will be shelling out $2500. The nationals will be for even more. In total, over $25000 in cash and prizes will be awarded over the length of the tour. One of last year's champions Sean Silveira will be under pressure to defend his title but he's not stressed, rather looking forward to the coming contest schedule. "I 'm looking to hit up all the AA's this year! I'm looking most forward to the Virginia, Utah, Waterville and Wave House!" Suffering a badly broken ankle shortly after the IFC last year has hampered Sean's chances of practicing and locking in any new tricks, but with lots of rehab and physio he's confident he's back to 100%. "I've been doing a lot of physical therapy and I'm ready for the tour!" He told us earlier this week. "I haven't really been working on anything new because of the setback I had this year. My biggest threat would have to be every competitor on the tour because of my lack of riding but I definitely don't want them to underestimate me. I hope that this year we all have a fun time doing what we love to do and meet a lot of people." With Sean leaving a potential opening for someone else to take an early lead in the tour competition will be fierce as the best in the country scrap for every point they can get. We may all be friends but there's only room for one champion at the top. If you have any queries email firstname.lastname@example.org.
