Lake Alfred, FL – There are two things that are certain in wakeboarding: evolution and that the World Wakeboard Association will be driving it. Raising the bar it set over 20 years ago with the sport’s first competitive rules, the WWA announces the Malibu Boats WWA Pro Card. Designed to clearly define the sport’s professional riders from their amateur counterparts, the innovative program includes qualifying and ranking criteria to establish a higher level of competition.

Before the development of the WWA Pro Card concept, professional qualifying guidelines were vague, at best; it was up to the individual rider to choose “pro” or “amateur” status in any competition.

    I am shocked that Malibu Boats listed Froggy #1 in their first class of the newly created “Pro Card” rankings.

    Shocked, I tell you.

    Jon, there’s actually a multi-year ranking developed by the WWA. It is a weighted system that you can check out at http://www.thewwa.com/about... the ranking is called WWA World Ranking as well, not Pro Card.
