2015 WWA National Championships

The Nautique WWA National Championships Presented by Rockstar Energy Awards 44 Titles at The Nations Largest Wakeboard Event
Lake Alfred, Fla. (August 16, 2015) – The nation’s largest wakeboarding event, the Nautique WWA Nationals presented by Rockstar Energy concluded today with 44 National Champions being crowned during the five day event held at Miami Watersports Complex. Harley Clifford took home the Pro Men’s title putting together the best run of the day earning a score of 95.67 to claim the title. With this win, Clifford clenched the 2015 Nautique Wake Series Championship behind the industry leading Super Air Nautique G23, after also earning titles in Australia and Waco, Texas.

“I’m super stoked to win the Nautique WWA National Championships,” said Clifford. “This is the largest wakeboard event in North America and to know I came in and put in my best effort to claim the title is awesome.”

The Pro Women’s division saw Nautique rider Meagan Ethell battle Dallas Friday for the title while in the Jr. Pro Men it was Nic Rapa claiming the championship.  In Pro Wakeskate, Reed Hansen nailed his run to take the victory.

“Words can’t describe the feelings I have right now,” said Rapa. “It’s literally off the charts! I’m pumped to be crowned U.S National champion in Junior Pro and not only that, but finish 1st overall in the Nautique Wake Series! I can’t thank everyone enough for all the support.”

Over to the Wake Park World Series, the traditional cable Pro Men’s Finals pitted riders in head-to-head competition with Tom Fooshee coming out on top after he posted stellar runs.  In the Pro Women final it was Meagan Ethell again, claiming the win.
The Nautique WWA National Championships featured five days of intense competition at the Miami Watersports Complex with riders providing some of the most challenging and innovative runs in the history of the sport.
