    It just keeps getting sicker every year. Oakley’s incredible team of Wake rippers reaffirmed their dominant presence in the industry at the 2011 Transworld Wake Awards in Orlando recently – racking up major honors and hardware after an all-time year of brilliance across the board. A typically vibrant celebration at the Surf Expo trade show, the Awards, laced with Oakley branding, went off yet again this year. All on the heels of a clean King of Wake Series sweep – with Young Star Harley Clifford claiming the men’s crown and fellow Aussie Amber Wing grabbing the Women’s Title. Add the Junior Pro Tour Title secured by O’s up and coming young rider, Shota Tezuka of Japan, and it’s safe to say that Oakley’s team is poised to continue dominance today and shape the future of the sport tomorrow.

    The Oakley Wakeboard Team might as well be a Royal Court. At the final intense stop of the 2011 Pro Wakeboard Tour, the most prominent pros on the Planet collided to vie for victory in Knoxville…and to seal the deal for even bigger honors: The King and Queen of Wake Titles. Harley Clifford claimed the King of Wake crown, Amber Wing emerged as Queen of Wake and Oakley Japan’s Shota Tezuka claimed his first-ever Jr. Pro Tour title!

    Break out the brooms. Because Oakley’s killer Wakeboard team just racked up another sweep…Nationals style. Our very own Aussie phenom Harley Clifford lead the way by claiming his second consecutive Wakeboard National Championship, edging out Phil Soven for the contest and overtaking him for the King of Wake Series lead. On the prettier side of the sport, O ripper Amber Wing managed to topple defending National Champ and fellow Oakley rider Nicola Butler for this year’s honor – and an even bigger advantage in the Queen of Wake standings. Oakley Japan’s Shota Tezuka – a bone fide talent in every respect – scooped up a commanding 81.67 score for the Division Championship.
