If you’re going to Al Forsan International Sports Resort for the 2012 WWA Wake Park World Championships, then you will want to get in on some of the other sporting activities at the world-class facility. Al Forsan has put together a Grand Prix competition for riders, family, and fans at the World Championships that will be a fun and exciting way to bring people from all over the world together for a little off-the-water competition.

Karting, Paintball, and Archery/Shooting will be the three feature events over December 5-7, 2012 that will crown a different kind of champion than the Wake Park World Championships. Each night will feature a different event all strictly for fun. Event registration will be onsite at rider check-in. So make sure to bring your game face in not only wakeboarding or wakeskating, but karting, paintball, and archery/shooting.
