FUEL TV to Debut First-Ever Live Webcast at
Wakeboard World Championships

Orlando, Fla. - Action-sports fans worldwide will be able to catch all the high-flying, rail-sliding water-sports action of the Rockstar Energy Drink WWA Wakeboard World Championships, presented by Supra with just a simple click of the mouse, as FUEL TV will debut its first-ever LIVE webcast, straight from the ’08 World Championships in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

From the youngest amateur rippers to the top pro riders, fans can catch the exciting LIVE footage of all 16 divisions at www.fuel.tv/wakeboardworlds beginning Friday, Sept. 5 and wrapping up on Sunday, Sept. 7.

In addition to watching all the action, fans can be part of it as well, as viewers will be able to e-mail in real time direct to commentators Nick Weinacker and “the Noise of the North” Dano Amir in the announcers tower during the webcast. Viewers can share comments, opinions or just give a shout-out to riders, friends and family at the event.

Riders representing several countries including the United States, Australia, Tahiti, South Africa, Canada, the United Kingdom, Brazil, New Zealand and Japan will vie for world titles by performing rail tricks and aerial stunts while maneuvering on the water at a speed of approximately 25 mph.

The WWA Wakeboard World Championships is a four-day-long carnival of water-sports action. But not all of the action takes place on the water. On land, fans will experience tons of great music and food, athlete autograph signings, chances to win free stuff and shopping at the most cutting-edge stores offering water-sports equipment including boats, wakeboards, wakeskates, sunglasses and the latest in wakeboarding and surfing fashions.

Tickets can be purchased at on-site, Sept. 4-7 for $10 (general admission), $5 (ages 6-12) or free (ages 5 and under). To purchase tickets in advance, visit www.kingofwake.com. General-admission tickets are buy-one-get-one-free online only until Sept. 5, 12 p.m. EST.

Sorry Ed, looks like Oklahoma is the location. But I have to give you props for your being Johnny on the spot as usual looking for the freebees. I need to get this thing hooked up to my PDA to try and beat you to the punch from now on:)
