Harley Clifford Wins Nautique Wake Games
Orlando, Fla. - Putting an exclamation point on four days of progressive riding across 24 divisions at the Nautique Wake Games presented by Rockstar, Harley Clifford took top honors in the Pro Men's finals, the event's elite division. Nicola Butler also went home a champion, putting in a top notch performance to claim first place in the Pro Women’s division.
Making the most of the G23's huge wake, Harley Clifford boosted his way to first place with a combo of gigantic airs and stylish rail riding. The win gives last year's King of Wake champion an early upper hand in defending his crown. It was also a great day in Orlando for Clifford's fellow Aussie countryman Dean Smith, who used his collection of signature airs to lift his way onto second place.
Pivotal Day 3 for Pros at Nautique Wake Games
Orlando, Fla. — Stakes were high during the third day of competition at the Nautique Wake Games presented by Rockstar, as the world's best men and women wakeboarders battled it out for coveted spots in tomorrow's final day of action. Adding to the excitement, 2013 Wake Games crowns were awarded to amateurs in 13 divisions.
Pitting flawless execution against the world class wake from the G23, Harley Clifford and Phil Soven renewed wakeboarding's greatest rivalry with an exhibition in progressive riding. Clifford, the defending King of Wake champion, used the massive wake to boost a jaw-dropping indy double tantrum to help him win his heat and claim a spot in tomorrow's semifinals. Soven showed he was no slouch in the offseason as well, registering a vintage run that placed him atop his heat and keeps him in contention to win his second consecutive Nautique Wake Games. The quarterfinals also saw an excellent run from wakeboarding icon and longtime Nautique team rider Shawn Watson, who took first place in his heat and looks to be a fan favorite going into the final day of action.

Sunday of the World Cup: Austin Hair Daily Blog
Sunday was the final day of the World Cup in Tokyo. There was such incredible riding here today. As the tide gets lower, the tension in the rope gets higher, and handle passing becomes increasingly harder. But that didn’t slow anyone down. At 10 am on the dot the pro women were underway. Angelika Schriber had a killer run, with a roll to blind and a blind judge, that landed her in first place in the womens.

Saturday of the World Cup: Austin Hair Daily Blog
Today was the first official day of the World Cup in Odaiba Bay, Tokyo. The cable park is located almost directly in the city center. The backdrop is amazing; there are giant bridges and buildings everywhere. This cable is unique in the sense that it is on an open bay, so there is a high tide and a low tide. The difference is approximately two meters, or six feet, which is a lot regarding the distance from the cable to the water. Six feet makes a huge difference in what air tricks riders can pull off.

Tank breaks...floods boat show
We have been involved in a number of rail jams and this was the first time I have ever seen a tank break open and flood the area. I like how the organizer says he will get back with the engineer and see what went wrong. I don't recall having an engineer on site at any of our rail events.. :)
