The 15th Collegiate Wakeboard National Championships will be held Friday through Sunday at Cypress Black Bayou Recreation Area in Benton, La. Eleven universities will compete for the coveted team title. Arizona State is the defending champion. The event, being held in the Shreveport area for the third consecutive year, will feature a live webcast courtesy of Alliance Wakeboarding Magazine. Competition begins at 9 a.m. (CDT) each day.
OK after watching this I do see why a perfect 100 was never done until this Harley run. Never have I seen this many hard tricks landed in one pass. Just a few years ago all three of these doubles and some of the spins were only attempted on the DoubleUp. Harley is one of a kind for sure.

Lake Arenal, Costa Rica – The Costa Rican wakeboard family gathered again for the second edition of the Copa FlyZone, the “unofficial Costa Rican Wakeboarding Championship”.

A great addition this year was the presence of current female World Champion Wakeboarding and Liquid Force rider Bec Gange. She amazed the crowd not only with her big airs, but also with her great personality, being the perfect ambassador for the sport and her sponsors.

Weather wasn’t very ‘favourable’ (not to say it was simply terrible right at the start of the event) but still 18 riders showed up to battle for the titles in 4 categories (Juniors up to 14, Ladies, Men, and Men Advanced).

The JetSurf Costa Rica – people were on site to explain all about their brand new product and to show how Jetsurfing is done. That combined with the competition, Bec’s demonstrations, a party with several DJ’s playing, some balance boarding and more, kept people entertained all weekend.

Sunday saw the finals, with some surprising and some not so surprising results. Like last year Melissa Liscano took top honours in the Women’s category. 12 Year old Vivian Fischel won Juniors, Stephan de Smidt rode some great sets all weekend and took gold in Men. Men-advanced saw a surprising winner in Andrés Fabian.

FlyZone’s Sander Werink: “The goal was to bring the scene together and let riders get used to a competition format. Mission accomplished! And we had fun while doing it too. So good to see many familiar faces, and always great to see some new ones as well. And having Bec around was the icing on the cake of course. An excellent weekend for wakeboarding in Costa Rica!”

Gabriel “Chata” Barrantes (2nd place Men’s category): “That was awesome! But I’m also a bit sad; I wanted to marry Bec, and live on an organic farm with her. But now she’s gone.”

The winners of the Copa were:
– 1st Place Juniors: Vivian Fischel
– 1st Place Women: Melissa Liscano
– 1st Place Men: Stephan de Smidt
– 1st Place Men Advanced: Andrés Fabian
