Team Malibu's Dallas Friday Wins Nationals With S-bend

We received word yesterday that Dallas Friday took home gold at the WWA Wakeboard National Championships in Oklahoma. This win brought her U.S. national title total to six, more than any other wakeboarder male or female. Friday captured the top podium step by dominating a six-woman final. Nicola Butler captured second, while Amber Wing came in third. Read more about the WWA Wakeboard National results on

But Friday did more than simply win the event and secure another national title. She also made history with a move never before landed by a Pro Female Wakeboarder in competition. Team Malibu's star woman rider landed an S-bend. This trick has an extremely high degree of difficulty. In order to complete the move a rider must spin 360 degrees in the air while inverted. There's a reason no other woman has landed in competition, it's really hard! Read about this history-making run on the Oklahoman web site.

Check out this video posted by It shows Dallas practicing this amazing move first on the cable and then behind her Wakesetter VLX.

Congratulations Dallas! You constantly amaze us with your athletic ability and determination. We are always cheering for you here at Malibu.
