The sixth-annual Liquid Force Relentless Weekend returns to KC Watersports on the weekend of May 22. This year’s event is also a regional qualifier for the 2010 WWA Wake Park Series.
World champion cable rider Tom Fooshee, former women’s world champion Amber Wing, and celebrated Liquid Force team rider Mike Ennen will be at KC Watersports all weekend to help everyone improve their riding and giving tips.
The weekend kicks off Friday, May 21, with open riding on the cable from 2-8 p.m. After a day of shredding, everyone is invited to Hooters in Olathe to hang out with the pros and other special guests.
