Harley Clifford: fired up at Acworth

Harley Clifford displayed a jaw-dropping performance to clinch the first stop of the 2014 MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour, at the Dallas Landing Park, Acworth.

Clifford carried his momentum from the qualifying rounds on Lake Allatoona into the main event. He unleashed an arsenal of progressive tricks, boosting from the X-Star's massive wake to wow the crowd with next level aerials, clean rotations, technical grabs and on-point rail riding.

The Australian's well-balanced and perfectly executed run was too much for the field of world-class athletes to overcome, which included Rusty Malinoski, Tony Carroll, Tony Iacconi, Steel Lafferty and Shota Tezuka.

"It feels great to get the first Pro Tour win of the season, especially with how well all the guys were riding. I'm focused on having a really strong season and can't wait for the next event," says Harley Clifford.

In the Contour Big Air Contest, riders used a kicker rampto launch gigantic aerials that are typically not attempted in a traditional contest format.

Going the biggest was, Adam Errington, who stuck a huge Indy Backside 180 to claim first place in the specialty contest.
