Andrew Adkison wins WWA Wakeboarding World Championship
September 24, 2006
Andrew Adkison won his second world title in three years today at the No Fear WWA Wakeboard World Championships in Fort Worth, Texas. Adkison, a MasterCraft athlete from Orlando, Florida, topped the finals field with a 95.00 to defeat another MasterCraft athlete, Rusty Malinoski.
"The Man”Adkison, who has been a leading rider all year on the professional circuit, also won the last world championship to be held in the United States, two years ago in Orlando, Florida. He says both titles mean everything to him.
"I think just like in 2004, I’m walking away from the podium floating. It’s a dream; you just can’t put it into words. Now that it has happened twice, I’m just blown away," said Adkison.
This was final stop of the WWA Wakeboard World Series, a season-long points chase run by the official sanctioning body of wakeboarding, the WWA. Despite his second-place finish today, Rusty Malinoski won the season-series title just beating Adkison.
