The 2008 WWA Wake Park World Championships and CamSur Rider's Cup results

Sunday concluded the 2008 WWA Wakeboard World Championships and the CamSur Rider's Cup. The five-day event at the CamSur Watersports Complex in the beautiful province of Camarines Sur in the Philippines included 15 divisions with over 230 riders from 21 countries.

The event had the largest melting pot of riders from all different disciplines of wakeboarding and wakeskating. The Pro Men division behind the cable was the second stop of the 2008 WWA Wake Park World Series, while the CamSur Rider's Cup behind the boat was the first stop of the 2008 WWA Wakeboard World Series.

On the cable lake, it was Tom Fooshee from the United States who took the victory in a head-to-head heat against Sam Collins of Australia. Sam rode first and set the pace for Tom with a switch melon crow mobe 540 off the kicker, a 515, and a toeside backside 720 off the kicker. Fooshee answered with impeccable rail riding and flats tricks, throwing a toeside backside 720 for himself, a 90210, and a switch toeside backside 450 to switch front board on the transfer box.

Phillip Soven continued his winning streak in 2008 during the CamSur Rider's Cup on the newly built boat lake at the CamSur Watersports Complex. The lake design allowed for a little different format for a contest with rider's hitting a double-up in every round after their first pass down the lake. Phillip threw down all weekend behind the boat and landed a toeside 900 off the double up, as well as a melon skeezer 540 and whirlybird 540 in the final round. JD Webb took second place with Keith Lidberg and Trevor Hansen landing in 3rd and 4th respectively.

One of the highlights of the week was the 10 Minute Jam Style format of the Obstacles-Only division held on the cable lake. This division included many of the top named cable and boat riders together battling it out on all the rails CWC has to offer. The stage was set as heats of four riders would all be on the water at once with five judges concentrating on five different areas of the course. The format allowed for non-stop excitement for the crowd as everyone was throwing down for the entire 10 minutes.

The Pro Wakeskate division behind the cable was nothing short of an absolute shootout of the World's top riders. The six-man final of Leo Labadens of France, Ryan Doyle of Canada, Nick Taylor of the United States, Andy Kolb of Germany, Reed Hansen of the United States, and Bret Little from The Republic of Texas wound up with Nick Taylor in the top spot. The margin of riding between the top four riders was incredibly slim.

A special Thanks goes out to Governor LRay Villafuerte for making this incredible event happen.
