Kennesaw, Georgia (October 26, 2004) – Ambush Boarding Co. (www.ambushboardco.com) and Buywake.com (www.buywake.com) are pleased to announce the winners of the first ever Global Rider Search.
Please accept our apologies for the delay in announcing the contest winners as the results of the voting were very close and we needed to ensure the integrity of the voting outcome. Thousands of legitimate votes were re-counted and certified. Buywake.com and Ambush Boarding Co. are happy to award Josh Palma of Florida and Clay McCoy of Alabama as the Global Rider Search grand prize winners! Check out the full story on each rider at Buywake.com on November 1, 2004.
Josh and Clay will each receive a one-year sponsorship program which includes new wakeboarding gear (Hyperlite, Jet Pilot, Straight Line, O’Neill, and Capix), sandals and shoes (Reef & DVS), eyewear (Oakley) and a special Chevy Truck purchase incentive. Each rider will also receive a complete shop sponsorship from Buywake.com and Ambush Boarding Co. as well as be the featured rider in a full page Buywake.com advertisement in Alliance Wakeboard magazine. In addition, Alliance Wakeboard magazine will run an action photo of each winner.
“The intent of the Global Rider Search was not only to find the next potential pro rider but to encourage wakeboarders to try something different by filming their friends and changing up the way people typically go out and ride”, remarks Ambush Boarding Co. and Buywake.com President Chuck Morrow. Special thanks to Pat McCarthy, Wakeboarder.com for promoting and hosting the 2004 GRS.
Plans are already under way for the 2005 Global Rider Search. New for 2005 there will be a category for wakeskaters and women wakeboarders to go along with a defined men’s category. Start filming now as the prizes for next year are sure to be bigger and better.
