100 Point Lead: Amber Wing Victorious at Pro Wakeboard Tour Stop in Monroe, Extends Queen of Wake Advantage
Amber wing is still on a roll. A big roll.
Oakley’s Australian ripper extended her championship standings lead to 100 points after claiming victory at the Pro Wakeboard Tour Stop in Monroe, Wash. – displaying her continued dominance this season over a talent-packed field that includes the likes of fellow Oakley rider and defending Queen of Wake Nicola Butler.
“I was super nervous about finals today,” Amber said, rocking her Oakley gear and eyewear. “I really want to be the overall winner, and as the season gets closer to the end, the more the pressure builds up.”
A clean Whirly Bird, Moby Dick and a massive Scarecrow sealed the deal for Amber in the finals: Clearly a statement of her intention to defend her position on top.
Meanwhile, fellow Aussie and young phenom Harley Clifford took to the water to regain a lead in the King of Wake standings. Three 900 variations thrown down during the semis seemed to have made a statement – but some off runs during the Final Round allowed Phil Soven to take the win.
Fellow Oakley rider Aaron Rathy, however, claimed a solid second place finish…a signal of his return to top form after sitting out last season with an injury.
Congratulations to Amber and all Oakley riders that threw down in Washington!
