The Gulf Coast Wakeboarding Association along with Houston Watersports Complex and M2 Sports presents the 4th Annual H-Town Showdown Wakeboarding tournament. Come out and see the best riders in the state compete for some of the biggest payouts this year. The tournament is for riders just starting out in the sport to those trying to qualify for the pro-tour. We will have events lined up for riders and spectators, making for a full day on the water. So grab your board shorts, pack the cooler and come on out to a day of fun in Houston. Music will be provided by Wetsounds and we have a few new surprises for this year’s event. As always there will be plenty of cool new products to pick up via the GCWA raffle or in the M2 Sports Pro Shop.

Proceeds from the tournament to benefit Texas Adaptive Aquatics, a non-profit organization that teaches disabled children and adults to waterski. Check them out at www.TAAsports.org
