Skurfing USA

Rejoice in the blush of a beautiful Arizona dawn and head toward Two Cow Cove on the shore of Lake Pleasant when Arizona Wakeboard Association Competitive Wakeboard participants slash and spin through the brilliant blue water. The early wakeboarder scores the tasty waves as single-board “skurfers” shred water in search of sodden glory and season points. Says the AWA’s Evelio Mattos, "The most entertaining part has to be the outlaw division, which is not limited in the number of inverted tricks they are allowed to attempt. You'll see huge airs and big crashes." Just what the chiropractor ordered.
