Our recap is simple. Harley Clifford just became the first rider in the history of wakeboarding to land back-to-back, wake-to-wake double-flips in a contest run.
A double indy tantrum followed by a double indy half-cab roll. Not only that, but he landed a THIRD double-flip off of the double-up at the end of his run,
a toeside double back-roll, making him the first rider to land THREE double-flips in a single contest run, which resulted in another record - the first rider to score a perfect 100
at any boat competition in the history of wakeboarding. WOW!
This marks Harley's 5th consecutive podium at the Masters, and his second win, his last win coming in 2011. This also marks Harley's 5th consecutive win of the year, winning 6 of the 7
boat events he has competed in this year. The defending champion, Phil Soven, rode directly after Harley and went for at all but come up short, falling on a two Crow Mobe 720's and failing to reach the podium. This is the first time Phil
Soven has failed to make podium at the Masters since 2006.
In Women, Meagan Ethell took her second Masters win, her first coming back in 2012 before her knee injury. Dallas Friday took second place landing on the podium at the Masters for the 8th
time in the last 10 years! Both riders out-matched the defending Masters champion, Raimi Merritt, who took third.
