Sail-World.com : WWA National Championships - Victory for Phil Soven
WWA National Championships - Victory for Phil Soven


Thousands of fans descended on the Voice of America Park to watch the world’s best wakeboarders and wakeskaters battle it out at the final day of the Nautique WWA Wakeboard National Championships presented by Rockstar. Walking away with coveted 2013 National titles in the sport’s two elite divisions were Phil Soven in the Men’s Pro and Amber Wing in Women’s Pro.

Soven claimed victory at the country’s largest contest with a perfectly executed run that included other-worldly aerials boosted from the G23’s game-changing wake and spot-on rail riding. His run edged out a stacked field of wakeboarding biggest names, including Oli Derome, JD Webb, Harley Clifford, Phil Rusty Malinoski and Shota Tezuka.

'Nationals was an amazing event this year,' said Soven. 'Everyone was riding out of their minds, especially in the finals. The venue here in West Chester was great and I am really excited to come out on top!'

En route to her 2013 National Title, Wing overcame a valiant effort from iconic Pro Women rider Dallas Friday. To edge her out, Wing relied on her persistent aerial attack launching from the G23 wake just a little bigger and cleaner than the rest of the field to claim to prestigious title.

The sport’s future stars competing at Nationals in the Junior Pro division gave fans a glimpse of what lies ahead in competitive wakeboarding. The future is bright indeed, in large part to the division’s brightest star, Noah Flegel. Adding another title to his huge season, Flegel dismantled the competition with a wide-array of tricks that are well beyond his years.

Pro Wakeskating also crowned a national champion today. Maneuvering perfectly off the all-new 2014 Super Air Nautique 210’s super clean wake, Danny Hampson combined technical tricks with smooth style to secure the top spot on the podium.

Following the Men’s Final fans were treated to one of wakeboarding’s most impressive spectacles, The Polaroid Action Big Air Contest. Boosting jaw-dropping tricks that are rarely attempted in a traditional contest format, Adam Errington topped the field with a huge Mute Half Cab Roll to win the specialty event.
