The event will be capped at 48 competitors and will be run over a one day period during the 4th or the 5th of July - location will again be Cronulla Point.
Positions are still available so if you’re keen for a chance at $10,000 cash and the chance of winning some fantastic prizes entry, get your entry in before you loose out..
In regards to IBA contracted riders - I have been informed by the IBA that only riders that are contracted to the IBA (that is riders that have signed a contract in 2009) will receive a 12 month ban; any top 28 riders may also incur a $500 USD fine.
So – here is the deal
a) If you are not contracted by the IBA - you are more than welcome to compete.
b) If you haven’t signed an IBA contract but are competing on the IBA world Tour, you are more than welcome to compete.
c) If you are contracted and you are not planning on entering any more IBA event you are more than welcome to compete.
d) If you are contracted and want to enter regardless, guess what - you are more than welcome as well…
e) Please note: I understand that the IBAA have scheduled events during the SIC waiting period- so - for those non contracted BBA competitors not competing in The Soldiers Beach Pro ‘09, that’s right- you are also welcome to compete.
Come On - Support the event that has inspired a generation of chargers.

The WaveLoch Flow Tour event #5 was held at Silver Rapids on Saturday, June 13.
Idaho is not the first state that comes to mind when you mention a professional surfing competition but the FlowRider® makes this possible and transforms Silver Rapids Indoor Waterpark into a topical-like environment with the feeling of catching a wave on the Florida coast – including the 84-degree water.
45 contestants from across the US were on hand and battled for top honors and a share of the $2,500 cash purse. Local riders held their own against some of the sport’s top talent as Jake Sieler won the junior Bodyboard division and local Mason Adsit took second. Men’s Bodyboard was won by Kyler Bill of Utah.
The Masters Bodyboard final results had Aaron Furman of Virginia on top with a close second from Texas rider Cathy Seabert. Female Bodyboard was another awesome final with Morgan Seabert of Texas getting the Victory with Cathy in 2nd, Amanda Furman 3rd and youngest competitor the event and tour Maya Johnson in 4th.
