Aktion Parks said the 14th annual Slider Spectacular will be held Dec. 3-4 at the Orlando Watersports Complex in Florida.

Riders of all ages and abilities will compete on OWC’s Advanced Cable in nine divisions. Over two days, riders are guaranteed to ride at least twice in this features-only competition.

Competition organizers are introducing several new elements this year, including a streamlined judging format that minimizes wait times for riders and results. The new format will provide a live display with updated results that can be viewed on site or online through any device.

The Junior Pro (16 and under) division will debut. The Slider Spectacular also will present the first Cable Awards ceremony for local OWC riders.

Much like the Wake Awards, special riders who have stood out throughout the year will receive awards in several categories. They include Male Rider of the Year; Female Rider of the Year; Grom Rider of the Year; “Check out this Kid” Award; OWC Video of the Year; and the Honorary “Cable Rat” Award.

“OWC is proud to once again host the Slider Spectacular for the 14th year,” Correct Craft CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement.

“We are especially excited to recognize the people who support us the most, our local riders. Our OWC team is focused on hosting a great event, and with the all-new additions we hope to make this year’s Slider Spectacular the best one yet.”
