Merced, CA September 19, 2012; Centurion Boats announced the winner of the “Win a Trip to the World Wake Surfing Championship Contest.” Mark Ayers of Pfafftown, NC near Winston-Salem is the lucky winner! The contest, which ran through the months of July and August, encouraged applicants to enter by submitting their name and contact info. The Grand Prize includes airfare, hotel, rental car and VIP event passes for three nights at the BlueWater Resort and Casino – site of the 2012 World Wake Surfing Championship.

Mark Ayers is a wake surfer from North Carolina. His daughter, Gabby, has been entering wake surfing contests this summer and her success recently landed her an invitation to join the Overton’s team. Mark is bringing Gabby with him next week. Mark Ayers said, “When I saw this contest offer, I entered, but never expected to win. Then, when the call came in that we won, I couldn’t believe it. We are so excited and we want to thank Centurion for the opportunity.“

Mark’s prize pack also includes a TransWorld WakeBoarding photo session with his favorite athlete, a photo in the magazine’s spring issue, a video sequence on WakeBoardingmag.com, and a mock souvenir cover along VIP credentials for the event. The prize package has a $2,000 value.

The World Wake Surfing Championship is the pinnacle event for the wake surfing competitive season. For many months, competitors have been vying for a spot at the World Championship by competing at a number of Word Series events that were held earlier this year in Europe and America. Jim Emmons, Marketing Director for Centurion Boats said, “We knew, that for the right person, winning a trip to this event would be very special. We are so pleased to have Mark Ayers as our winner and look forward to seeing him at the event. We realized that our contest idea was a huge success when we first spoke to Mark and his excitement came jumping through the phone line. He was so excited that he drove from North Carolina to Florida to join the Centurion Team at Surf Expo in Orlando two weeks ago.”
