Superlative Awards | Coming Up – Kane Ward
With so much focus on the best riders of today, our “Coming up” award is a chance to highlight the best riders of tomorrow. This year one rider stood above the rest and the results speak for themselves:
2 time WWA World Champion, 3 time WWA National Champion. These are achievements that you would hope to win over the course of a lifetime. For Kane Ward, this is what he has accomplished at 10 years old. Not only that, Kane is the youngest rider to ever land a Crow Mobe 540, he also put down a double flip at 10, a trick that has traditionally been reserved for the most elite riders in the sport. This double flip was also not a fluke. It was done countless times to perfection and if that wasn’t enough Kane went ahead and put it in a competition run.
The future is bright for wakeboarding and Kane Ward is certainly at the forefront. Expect this kid to be around for many years to come, he is undoubtedly putting everyone on notice.
