Harf & Watkins Go 1, 2 in Qatar
Monster Energy-backed wakeboarders Danny Harf and Daniel Watkins capture top spots in WWCT event held in Arabian Gulf
CARLSBAD, Calif., (April 24, 2006) – The oil magnets are apparently down with wakeboarding and that was all good with Monster Energy’s Danny Harf and Daniel Watkins as they eagerly dropped into the Arabian Gulf and emerged with a king’s share of the generous $780,000 in prize money – said to be the richest purse in the history of wakeboarding.
Harf, a veteran of the WWCT, entered the final eight on a wild card then took a pass to the second round when his opponent failed to show. Harf then proceeded to hammer his way through the finals, topping fellow American and Monster teammate Watkins for the overall title at this uniquely cool event.
Next up for the Monster-backed wakeboarders on the WWCT is Paris, France (June 16-17).
