Amber scored a first-place in her qualifying run and road that all the way into the finals.

This season has been also highlighted with wins at US National’s and Wakestock, proving that Amber is truly having the season of her life!!

“Winning the World Title is a DREAM come true.” Wing said on the podium, “It has always been a dream and I didn’t know the reality was going to come so soon. I was focusing more on my freeriding and video section for Push Process then my contest riding this year. I stood my passes up in tough conditions and stomped my double up to take the title. The reality has not kicked in yet.”

After joining the Oakley Women’s team last summer. Wing has been on a world tour, working on her upcoming section in the movie Push Process. She has been learning big progressive tricks, and perfecting her style by freeriding with the boys in Brazil, Canada, Minnesota, Australia, and Orlando.
