Guy Firer and Julia Rick have claimed the 2015 European Cable Wakeboard Championships, at Starwake Park, Ravenna, Italy.

The Open Men's final saw Timo Kapl completing a spectacular first run with a 900 over the kicker, followed by mobe 5, raley 5, toeside blind judge, backside 450 transfer on the funbox, nose press 180-to-180 out from the pipe, s-mobe 5 with grab, switch KGB, and a backside 720 from the last kicker.

The rider from Austria seemed to have conquered the top spot in the podium until Firer went for his second run. The wakeboarder from Israel stomped a toeside backside 540 indy rewind, s-bend backside 360, crow mobe, raley 5, mobe 5, toeside blind judge and a 1080 at the inside kicker. A victory by a mere 0.70 points.
