“It is difficult to focus on our wakeboard contest given the tragic events that happened in our city over the past week,” said Bill Porter founder of the Gravel Tour and owner of Performance Ski and Surf of Orlando Inc. “My hope is that we can help be part of the healing process on some level for the families who come to our event. We plan to donate a portion of our proceeds from rider entry fees and t-shirt sales during the competition to oneorlando.org which offers financial help to the victims and families of the Pulse shooting.”

About the Performance Ski and Surf Gravel Tour Wakeboard Series
The Gravel Tour was the vision of Watersports Industry Legend Herb O’Brien and Bill Porter, owner of Performance Ski and Surf.
“When the Orlando Watersports Complex was being built, Herb stressed to me that we needed to put on grassroots wakeboard events at the park. He felt that we could bring a lot of new riders into the sport and help shape and grow the industry for decades to come through these events. I’m proud to say that 16 years later, his vision for the Gravel Tour is alive and well and continues to impact the sport as we know it,” said Bill Porter-Gravel Tour Founder.
