Hydro-Turf Returns As Title Sponsor of 2016 Surf & Turf Tour


If this past weekend’s AquaX action in Tavares, Florida just wasn’t enough to quell your thirst, then we’ve got news for you: the first two rounds of the 2016 HydroTurf Surf and Turf Tour will be held this coming weekend (April 16-17) at Wooten Park Extension. Marking the occasion is the return of Hydro-Turf as the title sponsor of the Surf and Turf Tour presented by City of Tavares, Yamaha, Sea-Doo, RIVA Racing, and co-sponsored by Jet Pilot, Team Mean, Ross Nemo Racing, Ben’s Performance, and Fizzle Intercoolers, Key West Resort, Tiki West. Promoter Mikey Young has also arranged for a swell discount ($69 per night) for participants and spectators as the host hotel, Inn on the Green when you mention the Surf and Turf Tour.

According to a recent Facebook post, Olbricht wrote, “This is an incredible award to receive from within the personal watercraft indsutry. We at Hydro-Turf are honored to be recognized for these contributions to injury and accident prevention. Thank you for supporting our company and using the same products that water safety professionals rely upon.”
