The 2016 “Real Wake Driven by MasterCraft” video series is expected to appear today at XGames.com and on ABC-TV on July 30.

Each Real Wake video part will debut at www.XGames.com/RealWake. Organized in collaboration with MasterCraft and Alliance Wake, the free-flowing format of the competition will reward tricks, style and cinematography.

MasterCraft said a panel of industry experts will judge the videos. A first-place cash prize will be awarded to the winner, and the top three athletes and their filmers will get gold, silver and bronze medals.

The company said fans also will have a chance to view and vote on their favorite video in a tournament-style bracket. The fan favorite will win an additional cash prize.

This year’s competition will include never-before-seen video parts from Harley Clifford, Steel Lafferty, Chris “Shredtown” Abadie, Brenton Priestly, Josh Twelker and Dominik Hernler.

Each Real Series competition culminates in a one-hour World of X Games show that will premiere on ABC and feature behind-the-scenes footage, athlete interviews and selection of the medalists.

Like past Real Series competitions, each athlete will have the opportunity to team with an editor on the production of a video part that will present riders in their own unique style. Each Real Series event’s videos will premiere at XGames.com, where fans can watch and vote for their favorite.
