The World Finals is centered around the sports of Closed Course Racing and Freestyle Competition. Closed Course Racing has a starting line of Personal Watercraft dashing towards a first turn buoy and then navigating several laps through a buoy course.
Freestyle has individual athletes demonstrating tricks and stunts during a one or two minute routine for a judge’s score. Professionals, Amateurs, Juniors, and Womens divisions will all bring hundreds of athletes from more than 50 nations to compete for the title of World Champion. Only the Olympic Games have more individual nations represented at a single venue. Last year, Freestyle returned Saturday night, under the London Bridge to an audience of thousands. The Saturday night show will take place again, this year, October 11, at sunset.
The World Finals contains the world’s only trade show full of vendors showcasing and selling the latest Personal Watercraft accessories and lifestyle products. This event is also where new models are unveiled from the leading watercraft manufacturers. Newcomers and experienced enthusiasts alike will always find something new at the World Finals that will further enhance their relationship with watercraft. Several new products will be released this year and shown, for the first time, at the trade show portion of the quakysense World Finals.
