Online viewers had the opportunity to email questions to two of the most famous personalities in the wakeboarding industry, Shaun Murray and Dallas Friday. Shaun, Dallas, and Sascha Peschl provided commentary and answered questions sent in from viewers. There were viewers from 25 European countries, 10 Asian countries, and many others from Africa, Australia, South America, and of course, North America which includes the US, Canada, and Mexico. For the first time ever, the winner in each division was determined by the online viewing public. Viewers could login to www.webcast-tv.com and cast their vote for who they thought should win. Having this kind of interaction with the viewers is what makes the event so unique. Allowing the fans to be part of the event brings the community closer and keeps them involved. Mike Ferraro, the busiest man in the industry and head coach at OWC said it best; "instead of bringing people out to the event, we're bringing the event to the people."
