It’s back and happening now. The 2017 Broward Motorsports Pro Watercross World Championship presented by Heyday Wake Boats is going on in Naples, Florida for its third straight year. The event will go through November 5 at the Sugden Regional Park. Televised by CBS Sports, this location offers a pristine 360-degree view of the event.
Additionally, there will be a variety of water-sports events and entertainment leading up the Pro Watercross World Championship. The event week which began this past weekend starts with the 2nd annual Hydroflight World Championship October 27-29th, which is just one of the five unique watersports on the lake. The remaining schedule will be as follows.
October 31: Heyday Wake Boat Board/Surf Competition and Heyday Wake Boat demos
November 1: Paddleboard Closed Course and Long Course Competition
November 3-5: MotoSurf World Cup
November 2-5: Broward Motorsport Pro Watercross World Championships
“Pro Watercross has been working with Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention and Visitors’ Bureau to make this event, one to be remembered.” Nick Handler of Pro Watercross stated today “Pro Watercross strives to push our sports to the highest level of professionalism. Sugden Regional Park in Naples, Florida, continues to be the ideal location; a fun atmosphere and substantial purse would entice riders from all over the world.”
In 2016, the Flyboard World Cup Championship joined the event week, bringing over 60 competitors representing countries all over the world. “The Pro Watercross World Championships is growing each year, as we add more watersports,” continued Handler. “We are really pleased to add three new events; Heyday Wake Boats have been with us all season long and have been a great addition to the tour and now the world championships. SurfJet, producer of MotoSurf, joined us at the Daytona Freeride and we were thrilled when they asked if they could be part of our world championship – this is their first ever competition in the USA. And with paddleboard, we wanted to have a little bit of everything and introducing Paddleboard Closed Course racing seem like a natural fit.”
Pro Watercross will continue to add to the event week to enhance the program, starting with an encore appearance with the real-life Iron Man and Flyboard inventor, Franky Zapata. Heyday Wake Boat demo rides will be a fun way to check out the first affordable wake boat as Heyday introduces its brand new 2018 WT-3 wake boat.
