BROstock 2015 Set for May 27–30



Liquidforce's BROstock, the world's most prestigious professional wakeboarding event, returns to the Lake of the Ozarks with more high-flying, jaw-dropping on-the-water action, May 27-30, 2015. 

Twenty-four of the world's elite wakeboarders will invade the Lake to compete for a prize pool worth over $30,000. Captain Ron's Bar and Grill in Sunrise Beach will be the host headquarters for the event.

Admission to all BROstock events is free and the public is welcome to attend. BROstock officially kicks off on Wednesday, May 27 in Osage Beach with a meet and greet at Wake Effects marine dealership, followed by a barbecue at Performance Marine. On Thursday, the BROstock charity golf tournament tees off at noon at the Hidden Lakes course at Tan-Tar-A Resort followed by a 5 pm social hour at NautiFish Rum Bar in Camdenton.

The heart-pumping, adrenaline-fueled fun begins on Friday, May 29 with the first round of the competition at Captain Ron's Pirates Cove at the 34.5 mile marker. From 2-7 pm, spectators in boats and floats will line the cove to watch the twenty-four competing wakeboarders push themselves to the limits. Following the first round, the general public is invited to attend a party at Captain Ron's where they can meet and mingle with the athletes.

The 10 best riders from Friday's heat will compete again on Saturday, May 30 beginning at noon. Following this heat, at 2:30 pm, the final five competitors will go head-to-head to decide who will walk away with bragging rights and all the prizes. After the crowning of the 2015 BROstock champ, there will be a ten-year BROstock anniversary "blow out" party at Captain Ron's beginning at 6 pm.
