Freestyle Personal Watercraft Association (FPWCA) is happy to announce that the Lee Stone Products U.S. Freestyle Championship will take place right here in Lake Havasu City, Arizona on Saturday, May 19, 2018!
Freestyle is the one of the fastest growing adrenaline watersports since the invention of the personal watercraft, and the U.S. PWC Freestyle Championship is the tour that separates freestyle competition from high-speed racing on personal watercraft!
Riders perform in 2 minute routines. Best Trick riders have two attempts to perform their trick.
Each competitor is judged on variety, difficulty, execution, flow and number of tricks by a selected panel of judges.
This is the third year for the freestyle only tour in the USA after crossing over from Europe where tour started seven years ago.
Check out top U.S. freestyle athletes performing unbelievable aerial maneuvers, back flips, barrel rolls and submarines right in front of you, and don’t forget those cameras to capture the maneuvers.
