Why Attend Thigh High?

Over 25 years ago the Gravel Tour originated with the simple idea of bringing riders and their family's together for a great day on the water!  And for 2021 we are taking this to an all new level by merging The Gravel Tour with Thigh High to provide an action-packed weekend of fun for the entire family. Whether your family surfs, wakeboards, or both, we are excited to combine all the action into a two-day grassroots event!   Our participants like to do it all and this is the future of our sport!

The Birth of Gravel Tour

"The Gravel Tour was the vision of Watersports Industry Legend Herb O’Brien and Bill Porter owner of Performance Ski and Surf. "When the Orlando Watersports Complex was being built, Herb stressed to me that we needed to put on a grassroots wakeboard events at the park. He felt that we could bring a lot of new riders into the sport and help shape and grow the industry for decades to come through these events! I’m proud to say that 25 years later, his vision for the Gravel Tour is alive and well and continues to impact the sport as we know it."

-Bill Porter, Gravel Tour Founder & CEO Performance Ski and Surf of Orlando
