2009 Alliance Wake Superlatives

Female Rider of the Year


Portrait: Cortese/Action: Lee

Year in and year out Amber Wing stays atop the world of women’s wakeboarding with both her contest results and stylish riding. 2009 was no different. In fact, 2009 might be similar to 2007, as Amber again became the first girl to land a new 720 variation, this time from the heelside approach. Props to Amber for the continued progression of both her riding and the women’s side of the sport. Check that; the sport as a whole, male or female.

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.
