The worlds best wave sets the stage for the worlds best wake surfing talent.
OGDEN VALLEY, UTAH (AUGUST 14th, 2019) – In just 21 days the world’s best waves, wakes, and ride will hit the shores of the Pineview Reservoir at Cemetery Point in Ogden Valley for the conclusion to the 2019 Water Proof Tour and the 2019 competitive wake surfing season. The 24th annual World Wake Surfing Championship, presented by GM Marine, comes to Utah as the diamond level event will feature the top ten riders who’ve met CWSA qualifications in all eleven divisions. The pool of world class surfers includes multiple Centurion Team riders such as Ashley Kidd, Keenan Flegel, Connor Burns, and Caro Villeneuve. Multiple time world champion Ashley Kidd will look to capture another title as she concludes another impressive wake surf season ranked second in season long points standings for the Women’s Pro Surf division. Reigning Men’s Pro Surf champion Connor Burns will renew a rivalry with Flegel as both come into the competition in good position to compete for the Men’s Pro Surf Championship. They’ve both had strong seasons and rank first and second in the Men’s Pro Surf season long points standings. Flegel currently leads Burns by just ten points. All in all the event will feature the top riders in both skim and surf style in Amateur, Masters, Outlaw, and Pro divisions with Juniors competing in a combined single division.
The Ri237 and Ri257 world class wake surf boats pulling this event will tow with even more significance this year as the 2019 WWSC, presented by GM Marine, will be towed by the Limited Edition World’s Salute to Service Centurion models. Book your travels as you won’t want to miss these special boats built to honor those who serve others and their community such as military service members and veterans. Furthermore, we are working with some Veteran’s groups and Hill AFB locally in Utah to entertain some service members, vets and their families during the event.
Paul Singer, President of Centurion Boats had this to say, “The Centurion World Wake Surfing Championship is always the exclamation point at the end of the wake surfing season, but this year the 2019 WWSC will serve as an event with even greater significance with the unveiling of the new Salute to Service models which pay tribute to important service members in society such as the Veterans, service members, and families who will be in attendance,”
