The second day of the World Wake Surfing Championship brought more remarkable performances for the onsite fans and the more than 6,000 webcast viewers from all over the world. The progression of wake surfing continues to amaze everyone as the athletes keep pushing the limit with creative new maneuvers that are nothing short of spectacular.
The second day’s special performances included big tricks from James Lovett who pulled the first ever (completed in competition) Superman Lovett Roll which is a superman air to barrel roll. With the webcast feed in the Cantina on multiple large screens, the crowd erupted in a loud roar at Lovett’s feat. Keenan Flegel also continued to wow the audience with huge moves, gigantic airs and a run that included a 540 shuv-it – a very difficult and highly technical maneuver.
Other notable performances came from Bri Chmel who landed a 360 shuv-it and Shane Allison who pulled a Fire hydrant 360 which each also initiated huge crowd roars! The event site at the BlueWater Resort & Casino on the Colorado River provides a perfect backdrop and excellent water conditions for the athletes to push their competitive limits. Todd Gaughan, tournament director said, “Today we will make history with largest cash prize ever for wake surfing.”
The event will conclude today, Saturday September 29 with the finals for the 12 men’s and women’s divisions. The historic purse and prize package for the 2012 World Wake Surfing Championship is more than $55,000. The award ceremony will follow the event’s conclusion.
The event is being webcast on www.thecwsa.org and a live camera feed from the boat is being supplied to the spectators in the waterside Cantina on multiple large screen TV’s.
