2018 NAUTIQUE WWA WAKEBOARD NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS Day2

Monroe, WA (July 26, 2018) – Today, fifteen WWA amateur divisions hit the water in hopes of a National title behind the legendary Super Air Nautique G23 along with Jr. Pro Men Quarterfinal rounds. The cooler temperatures and surrounding beauty of the Pacific Northwest created a top-of-the-line atmosphere, making way for flawless performances on the water. Riders in each amateur division also qualified to represent the U.S. at the 2018 Nautique WWA Wakeboard World Championships presented by Rockstar Energy held in Miyoshi City, Japan on August 30th - September 2nd.

A high-energy Master’s semifinal round jump started the day with Mike Cardoza (OR) earning a top score of 82.33 in heat one, going big and keeping it technical with every trick. Heat two went to Nick Cankar (FL) throwing down with a nose grab H/S F/S 5 scoring 83.67. Tom Pazerunas (IL) took the third heat scoring 88.00 with a massive tantrum to blind.

“I’m stoked have the nation’s top athletes right in my backyard for this year’s Wakeboard Nationals,” commented local Eddie Roberts. “It’s awesome to see all the sponsors, the city, and the families out here cheering everyone on in Washington.”

Heat one of the Jr.Pro Men Quarterfinals saw Tyler Worrall (USA) take the win charging a massive Dum Dum in his run behind the award-winning Super Air Nautique G23 for a score of 86.33. Thomas Herman (USA) ripped his way to a heat two winning run today with a wrapped melon KGB to earn him a score of 89.67. Luca Kidd (GBR) took heat three with 89.00 putting down a cuffed T/S B/S 7 and nose grab crowmobe 540.

The Jr. Women kept the momentum going with division winner Elle Christensen (UT) throwing a Tantrum and scarecrow for a winning score of 72.67. Hollie Waldrop (FL) finished in a close second with a switch scarecrow and backroll to score 66.67. In third place, Zoe Luquette (NV) rounded out the podium to score 38.33.

Fynn Bullock (NC) took the Boys division heat win with back to back 720’s and a huge melon skeezer to seal the deal scoring 84.33. Taking second, Alex Albin (CA) had consistent stand-up-passes that included a big moby dick for a score of 73.67. Brett Powell (KS) landed in third with a 69.00.

In the Adaptive Standing division, Aaron Cutler (FL) won his heat with a super impressive wrapped B/S 360 and tantrum to score 86.67. Scott Leason (CA) landed a halfcab, keeping the stoke alive for a second place score of 46.67, followed by Jesse Deemer (MI) in third with a score of 45.00.

“It’s truly an honor to compete at the Wakeboard National Championships and show the visually impaired community that wakeboarding is in fact a blind-friendly sport,” commented WWA blind athlete, Scott Leason. “When you guys told me, I made history at the WWA Wakeboard Regional Championships West, I knew I had to come to Nationals.”

The Jr. Boys Beginner division saw some competitive returns with Hudson Haynie (AZ) taking the National title with a H/S indy shifty and mute H/S F/S 180 scoring 79.00. Gavin Doody (TX) had an amazing run, earning him second place scoring 71.33. Rounding out the podium in third, Max Kofke (NC) scored 53.67.

The Girls final topped off the day with Kyla Hendricks (WI) earning her first National title, scoring 74.67 with a big tantrum and nose grab H/S F/S 180. In second place, the multi-talented Kira Lewis (NJ) threw a wrapped T/S B/S 180 with a score of 67.67. Placing third, Allison Lavrack (NC) put down a melon half cab in her run scoring 61.67.
