WWA and INT Team up!
 
Pretty Awesome in my mind, could create better things for both groups.

Very interesting... This should help with date conflicts, promo boat conflicts etc.. Scoring formats are a million miles apart though. .Should be good if they can get that figured out. My daughter rides both, but prepares much differently for the events. An INT US Championships run will not win WWA Nationals and vice versa. WWA says bring what ya got where as INT has many different levels of riders so more people can play. Both have their benefits toward growing the sport so like I said, should be interesting.

Finally, one flat fee for membership of the main organizations.

So now I wonder. Let's say there are already wwa sanctioned events in your state. Will these events be able to have a dual role (dual sanctioning) for a weekend tournament? I know that you would have to pay a per event fee and ride twice because of different scoring, but it would sure free up a lot of weekends if you don't have to travel to both WWA and INT throughout the year. Plus it should cut the work in half for both coordinators.

Short term I see it improving the wake part of the INT stops, and bringing more local people together. Long term could become INT grassroots and WWA as the next step or level
