Day Two of Nautique Wake Games Sees Strong Performances by Riders of all Ages

Orlando, Fla. — The prevailing theme of day two at the Nautique Wake Games presented by Rockstar was wakeboarding spans multiple generations and knows no borders. Athletes as young as nine and older than 40 and coming from as far away as Brazil put in top tier performances at one of the sport’s most prestigious events.

One of the day’s most competitive divisions proved to be the Men’s 2 with athletes between the ages of 25-29 battling it out for a spot in tomorrow’s final round. Separating himself from the talented field of riders was Tim Pitschke, who leveraged a run that included big airs and prime style to win the heat. Pitschke will be joined in the finals by Corbin Blanton, Rob Corum and Dylan Wickersham.

“Today really spoke to how far the sport of wakeboarding has progressed,” said Chris Bischoff, competition director. “We saw great riding from wakeboarders from all over the world, guys that have been involved with the sport since day one and people that have only discovered the sport in the past year or two. Regardless of age or skill level, everyone was stoked to be part of the Nautique Wake Games today.”

Also registering an impressive display of all-around solid riding at day two was the riders in the Junior Women’s division. The cream of the crop was Larisa Morales who used a strong aerial attack to win her heat. Chloe Mills also put in a formidable performance in the heat to claim a spot in the Junior Women’s finals tomorrow.
