Three staple events bring back the top riders in the World
Lake Alfred, FL - In the world of wakeboarding, the WWA Wakeboard World Series is one of the most fun and exciting wakeboard series around the globe. Its traveled to tons of countries on just about every continent including, Japan, Australia, UAE, England, Brazil, and many more. In the 2013 season, the WWA Wakeboard World Series returns to three countries that have proven to host staple events. Brazil, Canada, and USA will play host to the series in 2013, as riders such as Phil Soven, Andrew Adkison, and Aaron Rathy make their global journey in search of the best places to ride in the world.
Out of the World Series in 2012 due to injury, Trevor Hansen had this to say about returning in 2013. "I have ridden the world series every year since it began. Last year I was injured and unable to compete. Now that I am healthy I am looking forward to traveling and competing with the best riders in the world."
With over 60 World Series stops in the WWA books, the Wakeboard World Series continues to positively impact emerging wakeboarding scenes. The WWA doesn’t just hold a Wakeboard World Series in a country; it connects with local champions of wakeboarding and educates drivers, judges, coaches, scorers and organizers on how to make wakeboarding successful on a local level. With this model, wakeboarding has seen massive growth in areas such as Philippines, Brazil, and Japan.
"For this year’s WWA Wakeboard World Series stop in Brazil, Pro and Amateur riders will be back on the water. Now there will be more integration of onsite activities with wakeboarding, such as Roxy’s Stand up Paddle clinics, some pocket shows in Quiksilver’s lounge, DC’s BMX and Skateboard demos, and of course the well know sunset parties and bikini contest. The official website for the event will be online soon at raggawake.com with all the info about the event."
"Wakestock returns to Millennium Park in Collingwood, ON, Canada on August 9-11, 2013. As one Canada’s largest summer action sports festivals and the worlds largest wakeboard and wakeskate events, we’re proud to celebrate our 16th year," said editor of SBC Wakeboard Magazine and Wakestock Technical Director, Adam Levitt
