The rider pulling down the best trick during the event will take home $2,000 - the event's top prize. For the rider landing the biggest air during the competition, a $1,000 prize will be awarded. Worst Crash - a category expected to have several frontrunners in 2006 due to Lake Washington's rolling waters - pulls down $500 for the winner.
The new prize categories are a change from the 2005 event where Nick Jones defeated Mike Ennen in the final, outlasting all other competitors in a head-to-head elimination format. Robby Carter placed third last summer in the event.
