Kawasaki will be presenting the national series and most of the events will be held along the California coast (Ventura, Oceanside, and Encinitas) for four consecutive weeks in May. However, the final two rounds will take place in Laughlin, NV to coincide with Formula One powerboat racing and the Laughlin River Days festival. The new Freeride category will replace Freestyle at the first six ocean events, with Pro Freestyle only appearing during the final two rounds of competition in Laughlin. While the total number of rounds remains at eight, there will only be four weekends of competition, with each day counting as a separate round. The Freeride champions will be crowned after Round 6, with the events of Rounds 7 and 8 determining the Pro Freestyle winner.
Executive Director Kirk Holland of the IJSBA explained that the surf-oriented sites create a spectacular and colorful venue for professional watercraft racers to showcase their talents. Holland compared personal watercraft racing to sports like supercross and snocross, stating that they offer exciting, high-flying action. The tour will be televised by The Speed Channel. Those interested in the 2002 Pro Watercross Tour can contact tour promoter FreeSpace Media Group or the International Jet Sports Boating Association for more information.
