World Titles, King and Queen of Wake Winners Clinched at Rockstar WWA Wakeboard World Championships Presented by Supra

Pleasant Prairie, WI. – The best riders from across the globe were rewarded with one of the sport’s most prestigious accolades, a World Title, during the final day of the Rockstar WWA Wakeboard World Championships Presented by Supra. In all, eight World Titles were earned today by a global field of the world’s top wakeboarders and wakeskaters.

Displaying excellent riding on Lake Andrea, riders claiming World Titles today included: Harley Clifford (Men’s Pro), Meagan Ethell (Women’s Pro), Noah Flegel (Junior Pro Men), Stu Shinn (Pro Wakeskate), John Zdeblick (Men’s I), Setsuko Ito (Women’s Pro Wakeskate), Mark Dougherty (Masters Finals) and Chad Lowe (Pro Veterans Finals).

Additionally, three of wakeboarding’s most sought after season-long titles were announced last night at the Supra WWA Dinner of Champions. Harley Clifford was awarded the 2012 Rockstar King of Wake, Meagan Ethell received the 2012 Mona Vie Queen of Wake distinction and Mike Dowdy claimed the 2012 Overton’s Junior Pro Series season title.

“I’m really excited about winning King of Wake for the second season in a row,” said Clifford. “It has for sure been the craziest season ever. The riding was ridiculous, everyone killed it. I couldn’t be happier to come out on top!”

Following Clifford’s masterful performance in the Men’s finals, fans were treated to one of the most jaw-dropping spectacles in all of wakeboarding; the Sony Big Air Contest. Behind the supercharged engine of Supra’s towboat, the top Pro Men riders launched some of the most gigantic airs ever seen. Boosting a big Stalefish Backside 180, Aaron Rathy claimed first place in the competition.
