The planet's best wakeboarders and wakeskaters will fight for the world titles at Acuaski Action Park, in Mexico, from November 4th-12th, 2016.

The Cable Wakeboard World Championships of the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation (IWWF) are run every two years and will take place at Tequesquitengo, in the Mexican state of Morelos, and thus held in the PANAM Confederation for the first time.

The strong field features 200 riders from 25 nations, including top-ranked athletes such as Lior Sofer, Timo Kapl, Miles Töller, Julia Rick, Philipp Turba, San Im, Ariano Blanik, and Victoria Sosulina. The event will be streamed live via webcast.

The 9th Cable Wakeboard World Championships promise wakeboarding action at its best with a demanding course and wakeboarding's cream of the crop showing their hottest trickery on kickers and rails.

The warm weather and the fresh water of Lake Tequesquitengo make the region a watersport paradise. "Teques" looks back to a long history of waterskiing and wakeboarding, breeding the best athletes in the country.

Located not far away from the world-famous ruins of Xochicalco, the Acuaski Action Park is a five-tower cable park with a stunning setup featuring several fun park elements, including two kickers, a funbox, a flat bar and a pipe rail.

Competitors will battle across several wakeboarding divisions: Boys and Girls, Juniors, Masters, and Veterans. The wakeskaters will be split in Juniors, Open Men and Open Women categories.
