Board Up Miami
Miami, FL, March 15, 2007 - Wakeboarding's current top two riders battled until the final trick for the right to be champion at Board Up Miami 2007. Rusty Malinoski, "the bone crusher", of wakeboarding exercised a little payback, then picked up an $8,000 pay check, on the final day of competition by beating Philip Soven, last year's Board Up Miami champion, to whom Rusty finished second last year.

The one day pro-am was preceded by the IWSF Pan Am Region wakeboard championships as over 100 riders from all over the Americas competed for a chance to ride against the pros at Board Up, as the top 15 pro and 5 amateur men from the Pan Am's were selected to ride. It was the first time the IWSF Pan Am Region Championships paid a visit to Miami, and they were rewarded with great weather and calm water along the shores of the Miami Marine Stadium Basin on Key Biscayne.

Correct Craft was the official tow boat and allowed pro competitors to ride behind their latest innovation, the Nautique 236. In addition to great riding on the men's side, the women showcased their talents as well. The woman's champion from a Board Up finals field of six was Emily Copeland Durham, taking home a $1,500 cash prize as well.

In addition to some fantastic riding on the water, participants and spectators alike were treated to live musical entertainment, Red Bull's moto trials show featuring 10-time national champion Geoff Aaron, and perhaps the highlight of the weekend, the swimsuit fashion show by the girls of whose bathing suits claim to be very hot and very small, and by the throngs of fans surrounding the main stage, did not disappoint.

Board Up Miami 2008 is around the corner...stay tuned to the event website, for the latest news and upates.
