Wakeboarding’s top 30 riders will be competing at the WWA Cancun Pro, presented by Malibu Boats on October 3-5, 2014. This elite, season-ending event will bring both men’s and women’s wake riding to the next level, while celebrating the WWA’s 25th anniversary.


The next best thing to being there will be watching the web videos dropping daily in the evenings from Friday through Sunday. The event will also be wrapped up with an overall highlight reel, cut during the following week. Tune into TheWWA.com and MalibuBoats.com to check out all the action.


Puerto Cancun is an ideal venue, offering smooth conditions with wave-breaking shorelines and deep waterways to allow the Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV to deliver a savory wake. Off the water, participants will enjoy luxury accommodations with a prestigious golf course and private club.


This will be the first pro event featuring Malibu’s new Power Wedge II. New for 2015, this transom innovation is larger than its previous versions, kicking up a bigger wake, while its “lift” feature gets the boat on plane faster and easier than before. The 23 LSV will also feature the dynamic performance of Malibu’s Salt Resistant Package in the crystal blue waters of Puerto Cancun.


Known as the best-selling towboat in the history of the industry, the Wakesetter 23 LSV is ready to push the sport once again. Malibu Pro Team rider and event judge, Chad Sharpe is excited for this first-ever event to kickoff. “Each athlete’s riding is going to be showcased to the fullest at the Cancun Pro,” Chad said. “With a two-run format and a double-up in the finals, we are going to see the best riding in the world today. As a judge, I’ll be looking for riders to mix it up and step out of their normal runs, hopefully stomping some of the new tricks they have been working on.”

Ronix Wake takes to the Big Air jump for Brad.

On September 15, 2014, in Boardstop Facebook, by Boardstop.com
Ronix Wake takes to the Big Air jump for Brad.

Exactly two months after Brad Smeele had his spinal injury on the big air at Lake Ronix, Jeff Weatherall (long time pro rider and Brad's best friend) along with the Ronix crew fired the big air up once again. After Brad got hurt, his request was that the progressive riding that was going on at the lake would continue. After a brief hiatus of riding the big air, Brad thought it was time to push on once again. After a couple conversations. Brad nominated Jeff Weatherall to step up and break the silence that had fallen over the big air. Jeff gladly exceped this honer and rose to the occasion.This is an edit showing Brad winning the Trick of the Year at the Wake Awards, leading into Jeff honoring Brads request to ride the big air once again!
