According to our fancy web stats analysis software, 87.4% of you are not female and 12.5% of you are (right now I'd rather not venture a guess as to where the missing 0.1% is). This WakeWorld contest was all about the 12.5% and gave our readers a chance to pick up some great female-inspired gear from CWB Board Co.
CWB celebrates the wakeboarding female with their Diamond series of wakeboards and a full line of women-specific bindings, many featuring Hinge Tech. That's why we joined up with CWB to find a diamond in the rough; a wakeboarding female captured on film having as much, or more, fun on the water as any guy.
We ended up with a ton of submissions and I have to say that this is one of the most difficult contests we've ever had to judge. It seems like each picture we looked at had a female rider absolutely having a blast and showing what the sport of wakeboarding is all about! But, we had to narrow it down to only eight prize winners and we finally got it done.
So here are the winners along with the great CWB prizes that will soon be coming their way. Be sure to click on each picture to check out a larger version. Thanks to everyone for participating and you can bet that we'll be doing it again real soon.
