The first major event in the Wakeboard World Series is done and dusted! The Moomba Masters International took over the Yarra River in Melbourne last weekend with some of our Jetpilot favourites hitting the wake. The day had the pros pulling out all the stops to nab the first event of the tour and edge closer to the hotly contested title.
The Moomba Masters Pro Mens Final was absolute fire with our Jetpilot athlete, Cory Teunissen, taking home first place. He nailed both of his finals passes and taking out the event with a score of 94.67. Coming off major shoulder surgery and being off the water for three to four months, this is a strong start to the tour for Cory. As the current WWA number one wakeboarder and current IWWF Wakeboard World Champion, we expect to see him continue to drive it home.
The Moomba Masters Pro Womens Final was just as electrifying with Meagan Ethell taking out the top spot and our Jetpilot athlete, Bec Gange, coming in 3rd. Bec also took out the Rockstar Best Trick Award, absolutely smashing an Indy Tantrum to Blind and proving why she's a Wakeboarding veteran with a world title and eight Australian championships under her belt.
The junior events put on an amazing show this year, proving there is an incredible amount of up-and-coming talent in the Wakeboarding world. Jetpilot athlete, Mackenzie McCarthy, took out the Moomba Masters Junior Womens Final with a decisive total. Josh Swift won the Moomba Masters Junior Mens Final, with Jeptilot athlete, Bryce Grey, not too far behind him in second. We’re so excited to see what’s to come from these astonishing young talents on the remainder of the tour!
Next up in the World Wake Association Wakeboard World Series Tour is the Nautique Masters Water Ski and Wakeboard Tournament at Callaway Gardens in Georgia, USA. We can’t wait to see what the pros pull out next!
