Surfers form their own teams of two, one ski driver and one surfer. Each surfer on the team of two gets two “tows-ats†(when a driver tows a surfer into a wave) for their chance to get the biggest air and the best trick.

WHERE: Atlantic City, NJ, Caesars Pier

WHEN: Friday, August 15, 2008
Start time 7:00 p.m.
