Some of the Biggest Names in Wakeboarding Go Head-to-Head in Pro Features-Only Competition

Orlando, Fla. — For the first time in its storied history, the Nautique and Rockstar Wake Park Showdown presented by Polaroid Action was included as an event at the Nautique Wake Games. Boasting a field of the sport's top professional male athletes, the inaugural event was won by Raph Derome, who put on an exhibition in riding a Pro features-only course.  

"Nautique came to us with the idea of having a wake park event at Wake Games and as soon as we mentioned the idea to Rockstar and Polaroid Action they were all over it " said Chris Bischoff, competition director at World Sports & Marketing. "With household names like team Nautique riders Bob Sovenand Mike Dowdy going against the world's best park riders and a crew of Orlando's finest local riders, the Wake Park event had all the makings for a classic showdown. Congratulations to Raph for taking first-place over a very versatile and talented group of riders."

The prestigious invite-only event pitted the world's top boat riders against the best park riders on a Pro features-only course battling it out for a $10,000 prize purse. The field also included a contingent of Central Florida's top park riders that were handpicked by Orlando Watersports Complex to represent their home park.
