This year will also feature an expanded comedy and action sports experience, with a fresh lineup of comedians and riders that will be announced at the 3rd annual FFF Aqua Olympics on August 3rd in Austin.
“Pound for pound, this is probably our most powerful line up in our 8-year history,” said James Moody, co-owner of FFF. “We are staying true to our roots, while still pushing the limit on new ideas, discoveries and experiences for our fans… and we haven’t even announced comedy and skate/ride yet… so we are excited.”
