LAKE ALFRED, Fla. (June 11, 2016) – The action-packed 2016 Nautique Wake Open presented by Rockstar Energy is set to air on NBC Sports Network Sunday, June 12 at 12:30 pm ET. The show will feature all of the highlights from this year’s event, including the spectacular run by wakeboarding superstar Harley Clifford, which consisted of a double half-cab roll that propelled him to the win in the Men’s Pro Finals.
As the largest wakeboarding event in North America, the event served as the second stop of the 2016 Nautique Wake Series, which gives riders the platform to perform at the highest level pushing the sport to new heights each season. The highly competitive event also held the opening round of the 2016 WWA Wakeboard World Series, the world’s only premier wakeboarding series. All of the competitors were towed exclusively by the award-winning Super Air Nautique G23 on the world-class water at Orlando Watersports Complex.
Besides showcasing Clifford’s magnificent winning run, NBC Sports will show action from the star-studded Pro Women’s division, led by multi-time defending champion Meagan Ethell, who emerged victorious. In the Pro Wakeskate division, Brian Grubb nailed his run, narrowly edging out Reed Hansen, while James Loisel perfectly executed a variety of technical tricks to take the top honor in the Jr. Pro Men’s. The Rockstar Energy Big Air Kicker contest was a favorite among the fans and you won’t want to miss the huge tricks pulled by eventual winner Chad Sharp.
