WWA Pro Card http://wwaprocard.com/
Still setting the standards and preserving the vitality of competitive wakeboarding, the WWA announced the 2014 Malibu WWA Pro Card qualification events. Created as a recognition tool to clearly define competitive 'pro wakeboarders' as elite riders, the program includes qualification and WWA World Rankings to set a clear path for riders to follow.

To all aspiring pro riders: Get ready for Wake Games, US Pro Tour, WWA World Series and more by qualifying for your 2014 Malibu WWA Pro Card. All wakeboarders planning on riding in any Pro Men’s division including Wake Park (cable) or Wakeboard (boat) events will need to qualify for their 2014 Malibu WWA Pro Card to compete in the Pro Men’s division. The top 20 riders on the WWA Wakeboard World Rankings and the top 15 on the WWA Wake Park World Rankings lists automatically obtain their Pro Card for the 2014 season.

Freedom Wake Park in Orlando, FL will be hosting the first stop of the Pro Card Qualification events on Saturday, April 12, 2014. This qualification event is staged just in time for riders to get qualified for Wake Games only a few weeks later.

Renewed annually based on WWA World Rankings, the Pro Card legitimizes riders that are truly professional and encourages them to set a higher standard of riding and professionalism both on and off the water at events.

Once a rider has qualified to acquire their WWA Pro Card, they will be ranked on the WWA World Rankings list, a multi-year, cumulative ranking from all major WWA Pro events around the world. The WWA Wakeboard (boat) World Rankings and the WWA Wake Park (cable) World Rankings work hand-in-hand with the WWA Pro WWA Pro Card website
