CWB has another wakeboarding champion. Andrew Adkison, having an incredible finish to the 2004 season, has won yet another major contest last weekend. Andrew has now won the Tige US Open in Hawaii. It come down to he and Daniel Watkins in a 2 man final head to head competition.
In college news: Scott Hopkins won the Correct Craft Collegiate National Championships held at the Orlando Watersports Complex over the weekend of November 6th. Scott teamed with fellow CWB rider and last years champion, Joel Cahill, to lead the University of Florida to a third place overall team finish. Joel finished just off the podium in 4th place. CWB rider Hunter Croan from Texas A&M also had a good showing finishing 8th in the menís division.
CWB is definitely stepping it up. With Andrew, Trevor, Zane, Rob, Scott, and all the other riders, how can they not do good. They are some awesome riders and are gonna give CWB the respect that they deserve.
The US Open was definately exciting to watch live. I pumped my crowd up on the side of the river everytime Andrew walked by because i'm a CWB rep and also a grass root Team rider for Oahu. That guy thru everything in the book and deserved all of it!
Not to sure about his last run against Daniel Watkins, because I was helping breakdown everything for the US Open setup crew. I watched him and everyone else before that at is was UNNNNReal of what they were throwing. I can't remember or not, but I thought Andrew thru an "S-Bend to Revert" and looked like a F**king space ship out there flying around. Haa
The Indy glides and Batwings they were throwing were crazy too. They tweak them out SOOOO much, it just looks SICK!
