Last weekend saw The 2004 IWSF World Wakeboard Championships take place in Seville, Spain and the UK Wakeboard British Team were out in force.
UK Champion and European No.1 Louise Moore had an excellent championships as she qualified as one of the favourites for the finals, which for the first time had an additional semi final stage. However, after a fantastic first pass that saw her turn in top spot, she took a tumble towards the end of her final run which pushed her back into fourth and handed the title to Argentinean rider and friend Robbie Rendo, who Louise recently beat at the 2004 Speedo British Nationals.
Although again finishing as the top European rider Louise said ďIím a little disappointed as I knew Iíd ridden well and thought Iíd still done enough to grab a podium place. It was really competitive out there and itís great to see the sport being taken to a new level. I feel Iíve improved again this year and am already looking forward to the 2005 season.Ē
Britainís leading male riders Dan Nott and Ben Hitch both reached the semi final stages but were unable to make a highly competitive final.
One to watch:
James Young had an excellent run in the boys section and in only his first competitive year of Wakeboarding, he came an amazing 2nd place and is definitely a talent for the future.
