Fort Worth Cable Wakepark Takes Home National Honor
Cowtown Wakepark Places 3rd in National Points Chase Competition

Cowtown rider, Colby Cantu, catches air at the 2012 National Points Chase Competition in Waco, Texas.

Congratulations are in order for local cable wakepark, Cowtown Wakepark as their team placed third in the National Points Chase Competition which took place in Waco, Texas October 5-8.

The National Points Chase started with a five week series hosted at each participating cable park across the United States. Riders competed in divisions based on their skill level which was broken down in to: beginner, intermediate, advanced and professional. The top five competitors in each division qualified for the national competition and the top three in each division counted towards the overall team.

After the five week qualifying competition, Cowtown Wakepark took their participants to Waco, Texas to compete against 13 other teams from across the country. They had riders competing in all categories except for the pro division. Nearly 250 riders participated in the four day competition and the following riders from Cowtown Wakepark made the finals:

Beginner                                                                              Intermediate
Clayton Greer - 1st Place                                              Jordan Sudberry - 4th Place
Brock Baker - 3rd Place                                                  Trey Fambrough - 6th Place
Conner Hammond - 6th Place

Out of the 13 parks competing Cowtown finished in 3rd place overall, a huge accomplishment since they did not have any riders participating in the pro division.

What is Cowtown Wakepark?
Cowtown Wakepark brought wakeboarding, the country’s hottest water sport, to Fort Worth in a whole new way – there’s no boat and you don’t need any experience or equipment. The park has six cables so multiple people can ride simultaneously. Located in the floodway of the Trinity River, owner Tommy Fambrough started Cowtown in 2011and since then it has grown to see great success. Cowtown Wakepark is the nation’s only urban cable park and is conveniently located less than five miles outside of downtown Fort Worth.

Cowtown Wakepark is a product of the Trinity River Vision Authority-- the organization responsible for the management and implementation of the Trinity River Vision- a master plan for the Trinity River in Fort Worth, Texas. The construction of a new river walk and town lake will create a vibrant urban waterfront neighborhood, Trinity Uptown, which is adjacent to downtown Fort Worth.
