Aurelia Chenat: a wakesurfer/model with a French riding style

She calls herself an agent provocateur. But she knows how to have fun on a wakesurf board. Meet Aurelia Chenat, the party girl that is always chasing entertainment and joie de vivre.

Aurelia Chenat is a French model who spends a lot of time in Asia. Whenever she can, she jumps on a boat and rides the wakes with a glass of wine.

Aurelia makes wakesurfing fun, accessible and relatively easy. If you're in the region, you might find the regular-footer riding the incredible waters of James Bond Island or the stunning aquatic scenarios located in the outskirts of crazy Hong Kong.

Benjamin Leclair has suffered a serious spinal cord injury in Orlando, Florida.

The rider from Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Canada, was shooting a wakeboarding movie at Kevin Henshaw's Area 52 when the accident took place.

Leclair, who has already been considered one of the best free wakeboarders on the planet, was stabilized on site, airlifted to the hospital in Orlando and later underwent emergency surgery.

The new world wakeboarding and wakeskating champions have been crowned at Acuaski Action Park, in Mexico. Up to 158 contestants from 28 nations competed for world titles.

With an outstanding second run in the finals, Lior Sofer managed to defend his title at Morelos. With massive jumps such as heelside frontside 900, crow mobe, 315, or KGB 540 nose grab, Sofer pushed Dominik Gührs to second place.

"This year has been really tough, as I've been battling with a few injuries which have held me back. So, to come to Mexico as the underdog and finish like that is unreal. I just can't describe it. I would like to thank Mexico for treating us so well," noted Sofer.
