Hrvatski wakeboard tim nastupio je prije tjedan dana na Europskom prvenstvu u Turskoj i ostvario zavidne rezultate. 
The sun and the nice weather was definitively reward for the perfect Turkish organization. It was a final day, where we got the rest of the results through 5 categories (Open Men, Open Ladies, Masters, Junior Ladies and Junior Men). Some we expected, some we didn’t, but more or less we could see all riders smiling on the podium.

The most difficult categories to predict were as always Open categories, men and women. But Max surprised us, showing us her 2nd run, when she was already set up for the first place on the podium. Before the motor tower, this time she didn’t shoot with the S-bend to blind, she made one more step, with almost landed, but over rotated, double S-bend. Her team rider, Mike Ketellapper, this time missed the podium, in a first run falling on the end with toeside 7 and in a second, on the beginning of the run, he missed S-mobe. But Dutch riders didn’t leave empty place on the podium. On the third place was Marcel Doorgest, showing one of the best runs in his life. Before him was Lior, missing first stair, for a short, but after a big injury in the beginning of this season, we can be very happy seeing him smiling on the second place. On the first place, “clown” Nick Davies, definitively filled the expectations putting out his strongest tricks, ending his run with a clean blind 7 over the kicker.

Kath from Germany confirmed her first place on German nationals, by putting herself on the 2nd place of European championships, having clear stand up run. She was followed by Eva Koch, one of the first generations in wakeboarding, who confirmed her consistent riding and to all of us showed, that you don’t have to compete on each competition to confirm that you are one of the best riders in the Europe. If Kinga stayed to compete, it would be tough, but for all of three the riding was more than good and each place was definitively deserved.

From the masters, we expected a lot from Krausi (GER), but in his second run, he crashed on a double S-bend. He wasn’t so sad, he said to me “Do you know what makes me happy the most? I was waterskiing with Woofie (GER) and when I tried wakeboarding, I pulled him on the board. Now he is third, this makes me happy!” On the second place was Rens from Holland and on the first place Loic from France.

Junior Men were the last category, so the last riders in the last heat didn’t have so good conditions. They were riding in the dark, which maybe affected to some results. Lewi (GB) took first place. He was followed by Nicky Guehrs (GER) on the second and Josh (GB) on the third place.

With such a good results Great Britain took first place as a team. On the second was Holland and on the third place Germany.

IWSF is having big plans for the next season. On the podium they gave us some hints about having World Cup stop in Bursa for the next season, which means for the first time in history of IWSF, they will set up World Cup for cable wakeboarding.

Prize giving ceremony was really good occasion for giving two more rewards. Two athletes were announced by athletes of the year 2007. Gini from Germany and Nick Davies from Great Britain. He even took two rewards. The second one was the water sport’s athlete of the year, where he was chosen as the best between 3000 athletes through all water sports. He deserved it, because with his riding he is bringing some huge changes in a water sports. This was really the brightest reward today and we can be really happy that wakeboarder took it :) Thank you Nick!
