(Parker, AZ) The 2015 World Wake Surfing Championship presented by GM Marine Technology concluded Saturday with spectacular fashion. Fourteen new world champions were crowned and a $100,000 cash purse, water sports’ largest, was distributed to the pro men’s and pro women’s top three finishers in both skim and surf style riding. The conditions for competition were as good as they could be at the Bluewater Resort & Casino on the beautiful Colorado river and the waves produced by the Centurion Boats new Ri237 were nothing less than amazing. It wasn’t just the conditions that were good, the athletes competing in this year’s World Wake Surfing Championship proved they are truly the best in the world by exhibiting maneuvers that had never been thrown in competition before. For the first time in the history of the World Wake Surfing Championship, spectators saw amateur divisions completing maneuvers that only professionals once attempted. In fact, there were dozens of personal best runs produced at this year’s World Wake Surfing Championship presented by GM Marine Engine Technology.

The 2015 World Wake Surfing Championship hosted a new record of 151 athletes from all over the world — up more than 65% over the 2014 event. The competition ran three full days from sunrise to sunset, challenging event organizers to be on their game.
