Southern Regionals Weekend Recap!!

The Southern Regionals and bonus rounds were held on Lake David in Groveland, Florida from the 22nd to 24th July.  Once again WBC continued to see new PBs being set as well as more pending National and World Records.

Another stunning day on Lake David!

Ben & Chandler

Chandler Cargile has been doing a phenomenal job skiing in his first ever tournament in May. Since then he has continued to improve at rapid pace and has now qualified in the trick event for the 2012 Worlds and this tournament was no exception with Chandler landing his first ever jump in tournament at 8.6 meters. Congrats Chan!

Kiwi Ben Groen once again did New Zealand and Team WBC proud tricking a potential New Zealand National and Asian Australasian Oceanic record of 9,400.  He also set a new PB in slalom with a 16.6.

Lisa Pressendo accomplished yet another PB in tricks with a score of 2410, making her first ever toe-back in competition and barely missing out on a back to front in her other pass. Way to go girl!!

Carol receiving her medals

Carol Jackson skied above both the Womens 5 trick and slalom National Records with a score of 1,060 in tricks and 5.5 in slalom.

In the bonus round on Sunday Ashleigh Stebbeings from Australia set two more pending World records in Open Womens tricks with a score of 4,650 and 6,350.

A big congratulations to all the other skiers that did PB’s and a huge thanks to the crew down there for organising such a great tournament!! If you would like to see any scores from the tournament head to www.BarefootWater-Ski.com and follow the links the Southern Region Results.
