Welcome To Tidal Wave Party 14 – Jocks, Jerseys & Bears2022-06-05T12:05:31-04:00

WELCOME TO TIDAL WAVE PARTY 14
JOCKS, JERSEYS & BEARS!

We are so excited for the return of the inclusive party for Bears, Cubs. Chubs, Chasers & their admirers!

We are pleased to announce that The B Resort and Spa is this year’s home for Tidal Wave! The resort houses 394 rooms, a 5,000 SF outdoor courtyard with a pool table, ping pong, cornhole, lawn, chess/checkers, connect four and giant Jenga. The courtyard will be converted each night of the event to a dance area with lighting and incredible sound. The 300+ seat restaurant/bar and the updated rooms will all round out your Tidal Wave experience. (Please note that the host hotel, The B Resort and Spa, will require a 4-night minimum stay).

We are excited to bring back Riptide @Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark as part of the Friday night line-up. This year we are adding more buses for faster service and a Bear/Cub guide at the entrance of the park to guide you to the Bear Lagoon.

Bearaoke was such a hit with Tidal Wave 13 that we added more nights to round out the weekend!

Dirty Bingo will be a one-day event this year! 7 games with incredible cash and prizes to be won.

Vendor space has tripled! With 21,000 SF of vending space, we are adding more options including adult novelties, T-shirts, clothing and more.

A cabaret show with Delighted Tobehere is returning to Tidal Wave. Delighted Tobehere was named as one of the funniest drag queens in America by the Huffington Post, and the internationally celebrated comedienne, Pam Ann says that she is “hysterical!”.

We are all looking forward to another incredible event and can’t wait to see you all in 2022!!!

Today they are living in the Bay Area near San Francisco. The lube is 100% made in the USA, even every bottle filled in a small warehouse in the bay by us. But as said our Lube is different and what’s more important, we thought about what a pig needs when he plays: access! That’s why we introduce the PigLoad Companion. You can wear it around your neck, pop the top, get your dick or ass wet, and you’re good to go!

Besides our PigLoad Lube we wanted to give you some more. So we have handpicked items that we and our gang tested. All items are under one goal: having more fun! Have a look at what else we have for you! www.pigload.com

YOUR GEAR

Your Gear was started in 2018 by husbands Bryan and Eddie after moving to Florida and realizing they needed an alternative to a leather harness with the Florida heat. We created a tactical style harness to fit all body types after seeing many companies’ marketing revolved around one certain body type. Your Gear gives the customer the opportunity to create custom color combinations of many different harness styles in sizes ranging from small to 5X. We believe all guys should have a harness they feel comfortable with. Our motto is “Your Gear, Your Style”

TORSO MENSWEAR
