From Abu Dhabi, UAE (September 24, 2013) — When the WWA took Amber Wing, Dean Smith and Tom Fooshee over to Al Forsan International Sports Resort for the first ever demos and clinics back in October of 2011, there were few wakeboarders that could, without trouble, make their way around the cable. Fast forward to now and you’ll see riders such as Omeir Saeed, one of those original UAE riders, and you’ll see all sorts of high caliber riding from him.
Since those few days of clinics back in 2011, Omeir Saeed has probably progressed more than any other wakeboarder in the world. He’s now throwing down tricks like 313s, frontside 7s, and technical transfers. It’s going to be super fun at this year’s WWA Wake Park World Championships hosted by Al Forsan International Sports Resort to see how Omeir rides. He’s the local favorite and has definitely spent more time on the water at Al Forsan than any other wakeboarder.
We sat down with Omeir and got to know this rapidly progressing ripper. Click below to read the full story. Read the rest of this entry »

The 2012 Pro Women’s and Pro Women’s Features Only world champion, Ange Schriber, has her eye set on a repeat as she enters the 2013 WWA Wake Park World Championships hosted by Al Forsan International Sports Resort. Earlier in the year, Ange decided to make a carrier move and spend her 1st full summer in the US, and it shows in her riding as well.
In an era when women’s cable riders are throwing Frontside 720′s, pressing out rails, and boosting huge transfers, Ange Schriber hasn’t only maintained the high caliber of progression, but she’s pushed other female riders to join her on the progression super-highway.
