LIFT EXPRESSION SESSION

The @liftfoils Expression Session will consist of  TWO semifinal heats and then a final in two categories; straps and strapless. Heat duration will be decided once registration is complete. All racers competing in the pro class automatically get an invite to the session. We will have the Seadoos to whip competitors into waves. Each rider will get max 5 tows and can paddle into waves anytime during the heat. Heats will be judged by a 3 judge panel that will be looking to award progressive and innovative foil maneuvers
