The 2016 Malibu WWA Rider Experience Central is set to take place at Bel-Ray Action Sports Park on July 8-10. Located a short 30-minute drive outside of the “Lost Star States” most populous city of Houston, riders and fans will have the opportunity to experience one of the nations premier action sports facilities spread across more than 255 acres.
The three-day event will serve as the industry leader in hosting elite athletes in amateur competition, as well as an educational opportunity for riders competing at any level to learn from the best in the sport. Malibu’s WWA Rider Experience will coincide as the Central Regional Championship to qualify riders for the 2016 WWA Wakeboard National Championship.
The Rider Experience is a family oriented event that provides plenty of excitement throughout the weekend for all ages and abilities, such as Freeride Friday, Judge’s Experience, and the chance to surf behind Malibu’s Wakesetter on Surf Gate Sunday. In 2015, the Rider Experience Central at Lake Avery in Colorado was stacked with intense performances throughout the 3-day event, including Nic Rapa (AUS) grabbing the win in the Jr. Pro Men’s division, just ahead of fellow Australian Cobe France and Mizuki Takahashi (JPN).
For 2016, Malibu WWA Rider Experience Central will host the fourth Malibu WWA Pro Card Qualifier, which qualifies riders for the WWA World Rankings and the right to compete at all WWA professional contests for the 2016 season. Malibu will have a handful of professional athletes in attendance, including Oli Derome, Amber Smith, Brian Grubb, Massi Piffaretti, and Raph Derome.
