Centurion’s 7th Annual World Wake Surfing Championships – Ready for Riverfront Park
August 28, 2008 in Merced, CA ~ On September 6th & 7th, the 2008 World Wake Surfing Championships ® (WWSC) will celebrate its 7th anniversary as the first and longest running wakesurf competition. Nashville, TN will be the first city outside of California to host the world's best amateur and professional wakesurfers from more than a dozen US states, Canada, Argentina, Switzerland and Liechtenstein to compete in this year's world championships. Riders are ready to rock Riverfront Park and will lay it all on the line for a shot at more than $30,000 in cash and prizes.
Competitors will experience Centurion's world-renowned endless wave behind an Enzo SV240, utilizing the most advanced wakesurf technology in the industry. The two Surf Edition tournament boats are equipped with Sideswipe, an exhaust system developed and patented by Centurion, to clear the air and create a surf pocket free of harmful carbon monoxide fumes behind the boat. The SwitchBlade wake enhancement system is also critical in achieving the longest, smoothest and most powerful surf wakes. One of the Enzo SV240's is also equipped with the RightSurf system, providing reverse rotation and a world-class wake for the event's goofy-foot riders. The pure performance of the Enzo SV240 must be seen to be believed!
Last year, wakesurfers showed their skills, from shuvit 540s to surface 1080s, and big air indy grabs to lots of toes on the nose. Who knows what the world's best wakesurfers, pro surfers, pro skimmers and amateurs from across the globe will bring to battle it out behind Centurion World Championship Towboats in 2008! Watch history in the making as team rider, Drew Danielo, goes for his 5th World Wake Surfing Championship title in Tennessee this year.
