The World Wakeboard Association announces the schedule for the 2011 Monster Energy WWA Wake Park Triple Crown Presented by Alliance Wakeboard Magazine. The growth and focus on cable wakeboarding is bringing more sponsors, more athletes, new parks and bigger prize money to the Wake Park Triple Crown for 2011. This summer the tour travels to three new locations including Adrenaline Adventures in Winnipeg, Manitoba, McCormick’s Cable Park in Tampa, Florida and Hydrous-Allen Wake Park in Allen, Texas. Each state-of-the-art wake park is gearing up for this one-of-a-kind wake park contest series.
In addition to North America’s most competitive cable series, the 2011 Monster Energy WWA Wake Park Triple Crown will include more prize money and more focus allotted to the obstacles division. Now riders like Kevin Henshaw, Gabe Lucas, Shane Bonifay, Raphael Derome, Shawn Watson, JD Webb and all of the athletes who are focused predominantly on the obstacles will have a legitimate obstacle oriented Wake Park Triple Crown Series with their own overall championship.

The brand new six-tower wake park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada named Adrenaline Adventures will be pulling double duty as it hosts the first stop of the 2011 Monster Energy WWA Triple Crown Presented by Alliance Wakeboard Magazine and the 2011 WWA Wake Park World Series. This snow park in the winter and wake park in the summer plays a true four season roll in the community.
McCormick’s Cable Park in Tampa, Florida will host the second stop of the 2011 Monster Energy WWA Wake Park Triple Crown July 23-24. This will be the first major contest that McCormick’s Cable Park will host and the staff is ready to show the nation what their park is all about.
Only time will tell if history will repeat itself at the final stop of the 2011 Monster Energy WWA Wake Park Triple Crown and the 2011 WWA Wake Park National Championships as riders battle it out for the title in Allen, Texas at Hydrous-Allen Wake Park. This exciting new wake park, located adjacent to Allen High School will bring the masses out to see what will likely be a dramatic finale of the 2011 Monster Energy WWA Wake Park Triple Crown.
“America’s Cable Park Group and Hydrous – Allen Wake Park are excited to work with Monster Energy and the WWA as we host our first Wake Park Triple Crown and Wake Park Nationals in the same year,” states owner Chad Lacerte, “Allen Station Park is a tremendous setting for this event which advances our goals to give the youth fun, exciting, and community building activities to be involved in.”
Last year, the 2010 Monster Energy WWA Wake Park Triple Crown was largely dominated by wake park sensation, Tom Fooshee. Though in the final round at the WWA Wake Park National Championships held in Cincinnati, Lior Sofer of Israel, managed to hand Tom Fooshee his first loss in years. Lior finished the series second overall behind Fooshee, followed closely by Keith Lidberg and an ever-growing global crew of athletes. Make sure to keep a close eye on the 2011 Monster Energy WWA Wake Park Triple Crown this year as riders attempt to lay down the most progressive lines to claim the title. Riders such as Lior Sofer, Keith Lidberg, Marc Shuster, and European wildcard riders, like Nick Davies, Freddie Van Osten, and Dominik Guehrs will all be vying for Fooshee’s title.
