MasterCraft Athletes Sweep 2008 Wake Games
April 28, 2008
The world's best wakeboarders battled it out on the waters of the Orlando Watersports Complex this weekend in the final rounds of the 2008 Wake Games.
It turned out to be an international showdown between Rusty Malinoski (Humboldt, Sask.), Phillip Soven (Longwood, Fla.), Adam Errington (Ullapool, Sct.) and Josh Sanders (Nowra, Aus.) in the Pro Men's Division finals. All four rippers took to the water, going huge and holding nothing back, as all four riders wanted to kick off the 2008 King of Wake season with a win. Overall it was a tight battle, but ultimately, the "Bone Crusher," Rusty Malinoski, took home the title.
It's only Nicola Butler's second year as a MasterCraft pro rider, but this talented female ripper from the United Kingdom is already riding like a true veteran. Today's win is historical, not only because it is Butler's first pro title, but it also goes down as the first win of the inaugural Queen of Wake series. In addition, MasterCraft’s very own Laura Lohrman showed off her strengths out on the wakes and placed a respectable second place on the women’s podium.
Congratulations to Rusty, Nicola and Laura for a great season start!
