The World Wakeboard Association sits down with one of the best wake park wakeboarders on the planet for a few questions. This is your chance to get inside the mind of the German rider, Dominik Gurhs.
WWA: Are you more focused on winning the WWA World Series overall title or the Wake Park World Championship title?
DG: I have to win Worlds to win both. This is what I will focus on.
WWA: Coming into the World Championship, will you change anything in your strategy with this course to secure a win?
DG: It is hard as Fooshee is really good on the kickers and Von Osten is very good on rails, so must focus on my overall composition to win.
WWA: Because the rails here are not as technical as some other events this year, has this changed your approach to the competition?
DG: I think the rails will be very even and similar for everyone so I will focus on my strengths in flats and kickers.
WWA: Other than the competition. What is your favorite part of this event?
DG: Beating my friends on the best karting track I have ever been on.
