2009 Alliance Wake Superlatives

Rookie of the Year


We are proud to say that Bob Soven is the first Ginger to win a Rookie of the Year award here at Alliance, and the second Ginger to win an award this year! The middle child of the Soven threesome saw his star rise quickly and humorously this past year, as he managed to win every Jr. Men’s stop of the PWT, take second place at the BROstock double up challenge, and make more people laugh along the way than we can count. Given his unbelievable skills on a wakeboard and his “I’m cool, but I’m not that cool” attitude, Bob will be a popular presence in the industry for years to come. We’ve also got money on him to take down the next Feet on Fire barefoot title.

The 2009 Alliance Superlatives recognize the outstanding athletes and more for the past year. They are chosen by the Alliance staff in collaboration with former Rider of the Year winners. Be sure to check out the new issue of Alliance Wakeboard Magazine for more.
