Oakley's Women of Wake Update
The smell of summer is in the air, the water is warming, and Oakley’s women of wake are cranking it up a notch. Taking advantage of their last month at home. The girls are training and free riding before the Queen of Wake Pro Tour begins at the end of May.
Here are their latest updates:
Amber Wing – Age 26 “For the past 3 weeks I have been in Orlando riding everyday. Setting up my life in America and travel schedule for the next 6 months. Summer in Australia was hectic and fun. With the help of Oakley I ran a couple of all girl wakeboard clinics and organized a photo and video road trip all over Australia. It was for 3 weeks and we traveled from Sydney to Fraser Island. Alliance Magazine will be covering it in next month’s issue. I am excited about the season ahead and to be riding more with my new team mate Nicola Butler.”
Nicola Butler – Age 16 “I’m feeling pretty confident for the season this year. I have been riding a bunch as I just moved onto Lake Holden in January. So we are trying to ride everyday and learn new tricks for the contest season, as I know the competition is going to be tough. And I want to keep my titles. My goals for this year are to try and defend the Queen of Wake and get nominated for Best Female Rider again at Wakeboarding Magazines Wake Awards in August.”
Taylor McCullough – Age 10 “Already this year I went to the Philippines in March and rode in the girls 13 and under division on the cable. On the winch I did a 720 across a big rooftop rail. Which was a new trick for me on a rail. In both divisions I got 1st place and the medals were so huge they were bigger than my head.”
