WakeWorld.com reported that, five riders battled it out for the national title in the Pro Men's division at the WWA Wakeboard National Championships. Last year's winner, Rusty Malinoski, looked to have a repeat performance in the finals, but Team Malibu's Phillip Soven threw down a near perfect run, posting 98 points to take the top spot in the finals and ride away with his first-ever national title. Malinoski finished in second-place followed by Andrew Adkison in third.
"I have won a lot of contests and awards throughout my career, but never a national title," said Soven. "This trophy means a lot. It's a dream come true to finally win it."
Team Malibu's Brian Grub finished second in wakeskate and Team Malibu pro Dallas Friday finished third in women's wakeboard. Go Team Malibu!
