After making quite a splash in its Ohio-debut in 2012, the largest wakeboarding event in the United States will return to West Chester for the 2013 Nautique WWA Wakeboard National Championships Presented By Rockstar from July 25-28. The annual event will take place at Voice of America MetroPark and will feature the country’s top professional and amateur wakeboarders and wakeskaters.

For the past 23 years, the Nautique WWA Nationals has attracted the top wake athletes from across the country to compete for national titles in each of its age and skill-level categories. The 2013 Nautique WWA Nationals will feature more than 20 divisions with competitors ranging from seven years old to 55, with the top two divisions – the Pro Men and Pro Women’s – attracting world-famous action sports athletes.

'Voice of America MetroPark is an ideal venue to host the Nautique WWA National Championships,' said tournament director Chris Bischoff. 'The water conditions are perfect and the shoreline is awesome for the spectators to be able to watch all of the killer riding.'

For the pros, the Nautique WWA Nationals also serves as the sixth event in the King of Wake series. Pro riders will be competing for valuable points towards their respective series standings in addition to the national titles.

Online adult tickets are available for $7 (46% off the gate price) and include an exclusive Overton’s discount code for online buyers only. Gate prices are: $13 (adult); $5 (ages 6-12); free (ages five and under). With the online purchase of a Nationals ticket, the buyer will receive a free two hour cable pass valued at $30 to Wake Nation Cincinnati. The free cable pass is valid from July 29th, 2013 until the end of the 2013 season. Tickets are limited to one cable pass per person per event.
