Caro Wins the West Coast Open

June 14, 2013


Merced, CA June 14, 2013; Team Centurion Pro Rider Caroline Villeneuve won the West Coast Open. Caro as she’s known to the wake surfing world, has been training relentlessly, practicing for this wake surf season and it paid off Sunday as she took first place in the Women’s Pro Skim division at the annual event in Wheatland, California. The event paid her $1,500 for the victory.

Centurion has long been the leading brand in wake surfing and this event proved it once again as all three Women’s Pro Skim division podium places were taken by Team Centurion riders. Bri Chmel, the reigning five-time World Wake Surfing Champion took second place and newcomer Taylor Dorey took third earning $1,000 and $750 respectively.

Caro had this to say about her win, "I had a killer stand-up pass which included a 180 Shuv-Indy and a Switch Big Spin so I was stoked! It was an amazing feeling being on top but an even better feeling standing there with my Centurion teammates Bri and Taylor as we took the entire Podium."

The World Series of Wake Surfing will continue June 15th at the Wake Anna Wake Surf Open in Mineral, Virginia. For information on this event, please visit here.
