Harley Clifford: just don't let go

The World Wakeboard Association (WWA) has announced the qualification events for the 2014 Malibu WWA Pro Card.

All wakeboarders planning on riding in any Pro Men's division, including Wake Park (cable) or Wakeboard (boat) events will need to qualify for their 2014 Malibu WWA Pro Card, to compete in the Pro Men's division.

The top 20 riders on the WWA Wakeboard World Rankings, and the top 15 on the WWA Wake Park World Rankings lists automatically obtain their Pro Card for the 2014 season.

Freedom Wake Park in Orlando, Florida, will be hosting the first stop of the Pro Card Qualification events on the 12th April, 2014. This qualification event is staged just in time for riders to get qualified for Wake Games only a few weeks later.

Renewed annually based on WWA World Rankings, the Pro Card legitimizes riders that are truly professional and encourages them to set a higher standard of riding and professionalism both on and off the water at events.

Once a rider has qualified to acquire their WWA Pro Card, they will be ranked on the WWA World Rankings list, a multi-year, cumulative ranking from all major WWA Pro events around the world.

The WWA Wakeboard (boat) World Rankings and the WWA Wake Park (cable) World Rankings work hand-in-hand with the WWA Pro Card.
