The 2016 Malibu WWA Rider Experience Launches on the West Coast at Lake Las Vegas, where the glitz and glamour from the Vegas strip transforms to the water in Henderson, Nevada on May 13-15. 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 West 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, such as Freeride Friday, Judge’s Experience, and the chance to surf behind Malibu’s Wakesetter on Surf Gate Sunday. Last year’s Rider Experience West in Canyon Lake, Arizona witnessed more than 50 riders on hand to showcase their skills throughout the weekend, which included Australia’s Nic Rapa claiming the win in Jr. Pro Men and USA’s Alyssa Williams in the Junior Women’s division.
For 2016, Malibu WWA Rider Experience West will host the second 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.
