Rider Experience Central: Waterski America Hosts The Fun In Texas

Riders from all over Texas descended upon Marine Creek on June 28-30 for the Malibu Rider Experience — Central, organized by the World Wakeboard Association and hosted by Waterski America. Amateur riders got to ride and chill with Malibu Pro Team rider, Chad Sharpe, who gave everyone tips to make them a better wakeboarder, both on and off the water.

In typical Rider Experience fashion, “Freeride Friday” kicked off the event, followed by the WWA Regional Championships on Saturday and the Wakesurf Experience on Sunday with Malibu’s SURF GATE on theWAKESETTER 22 MXZ and 23 LSV. Check out the three-man surf lineup below! Riders were enlightened with judging clinics and seminars on how to conduct themselves as an aspiring pro rider. Ronix and CWB were on hand, with demos of their latest products. All in all, the Texas grassroots wakeboarding scene is strong as ever and we saw a lot of promising talent.

Special thanks to Rob Corum and Jimmy Trask of the WWA, Waterski America, and all the riders who came out and had fun!
