FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 9th, 2010
The WWA is thrilled to announce the dates and locations for the 2010 WWA Wake Park World Series (WPWS). In its third year, this is the first series of its kind with an international field of professional wakeboarders competing at cable wake parks all across the globe.
The U.S.A. will be kicking off the WPWS for 2010 in early June. The event is scheduled for June 5th and 6th at a park in the United States to be determined. The series will then swing over to Europe as the Netherlands will host their first ever WPWS event. The Protest Cable Call will be held at the Down Under Cableway in Nieuwegein, Netherlands with its new state of the art facility.
One of the staple events in the WPWS, the T-Mobile Extreme Playgrounds (TMEP) will again bring the largest crowds with a variety of on-site activities including live bands and a BMX contest. TMEP brings more than 6,000 people on-site to watch the action of the WPWS take place.
One of the most talked about parks in the World will be hosting its first major event as the WWA Wake Park World Championships go to the Hip-Notics Cable Park in Antalya, Turkey. The coveted title of WWA Wake Park World Champion will be up for grabs again, as riders in professional and amateur divisions battle in what is known as the true World Championship for wakeboarding and wakeskating.
The final stop of the WPWS will be held at the most progressive wakeboard facility in the world, the CamSur Watersports Complex. This event will be the final stop of the WWA Wake Park World Series towed by the cable, and the WWA Wakeboard World Series behind the boat. It will encompass 4 different disciplines of the sport to crown an Ultimate Wake Champion. This is the only event in the world where riders compete in a boat contest, a cable contest, and a Sesitec System 2.0 contest to earn points that will determine who is the most diverse wakeboarder in the sport.
