WWA WorldsPleasant Prairie, WI. — One of the largest and most prestigious action sports events on the planet returned to Pleasant Prairie with the opening day of the Rockstar WWA Wakeboard World Championships presented by Supra. Over the course of the next four days, more than 200 of the world’s best professional and amateur wakeboarders and wakeskaters, ranging in age from seven to 50+, will compete in the annual event for a shot at a coveted world title.
 
Opening Worlds in grand fashion today were 14 divisions featuring male and female riders from across the planet. Paramount day one performances came from the Junior Men, which was the day’s most competitive division with 16 riders across three heats. Australian rider Lewis Watt showed off a full arsenal of tricks including wake-to-wake rotating aerials, technical grabs and overall stylish riding to claim first place in his heat posting a divisions high score of 85.00 to advance to tomorrow’s finals. Fellow countrymen Shannon Speering and Joel Bartley also won their heats giving the Aussies a clean sweep in the Junior Pro semifinals. Both riders put on impressive runs that featured smooth toe-side and heel-side riding while boosting huge airs off one of the world’s best wake’s from the Supra SA550.
 
“We are thrilled to bring Worlds back to Pleasant Prairie,” said Chris Bischoff, competition director. “Wisconsin is a haven for water sports enthusiasts and today’s crowd was treated to some excellent riding from athletes in the amateur, veterans and masters divisions. They set the stage for some dramatic finals heats tomorrow when the first of the 2013 World Champions will be crowned.”
 
Wakeskaters also took advantage of the calm Lake Andrea waters today for semifinal heats. Turning the ultra smooth Supra SC550 wake into his personal launch ramp, Cristobal Mendez registered the discipline’s run of the day. Meshing wake-to-wake airs with highly-technical flip tricks, Mendez registered a day-high score of 70.00 to place him as the favorite in tomorrow’s World Championship finals heat.
 
Tomorrow’s action is free and open to the public. Saturday and Sunday’s competitions are ticketed events. Online adult tickets are available for $7 (46% off the gate price) and include an exclusive Overton’s discount code for online buyers only. Gate prices are: $13 (adult); $5 (ages 6-12); free (ages 5 and under).
