First ever "Wake in the Desert" competition

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.--  You'd think chicken salad and the butter slide would for the kitchen, but they're actually wakeboarding moves.

Today in Richland, wakeboarders competed in the first ever "Wake in the Desert".

The event was put on by the Tri-city Riders, a group that is trying to build a wakeboarding community in the Tri-Cities.

About 45 competed today.

The Tri-City Riders have a membership of less than a hundred, but hope the event will get more interested in the extreme sport.
