Hot racing and hot weather have brought us the racing we have been waiting for. The 36th IJSBA World Finals, made possible by the generous title sponsorship of Blowsion, has been a very successful and fun event.
As of this writing, grandstands are full, foot traffic is heavy, racing is great, people are shopping, and the racing is mazing. Things are evolving in racing and we are seeing new trends ahead. Injuries have been almost non existent and conflicts are minimal (heck, we even worked out a few older ones while we were here). The event has more than 370 individual competitors from the following participating nations: Thailand, France, United Kingdom, Ukraine, Norway, Cayman Islands, Argentina, Kuwait, Brazil, Guadeloupe, South Africa, Finland, Qatar, Denmark, Lithuania, United Arab Emirates, Australia, Spain, Italy, Hungary, Canada, Austria, Guadeloupe, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Serbia, Belgium, Netherlands, Estonia, Martinique, Indonesia, New Zealand, and the United States of America. There are more than 6000′ linear feet of vendor space. Nearly 10,000 were watching the JetskinWorld live stream at the peak.
Great staff, great event, and great people.
