It is with great pleasure that the World Wakeboard Council can announce that MasterCraft will be the official towboat for the 2004 Wakeboard World Championships to be held in Seville, Spain from 13th. to 17th. October 2004.

We will also benefit from having an X-Star on the water and full MasterCraft Europe support, marking a major step forward for the Wakeboard World Championships and allowing riders the opportunity to perform at their very best. A survey carried out by a leading wakeboard web site, wakeworld.com awarded the X-star as Wakeboard Boat of the Year and Best Innovation.

Last year’s event saw 144 riders from 21 countries competing for the prestigious title of Wakeboard World Champion and, by having MasterCraft on board, this will bring a new dimension to the 2004 event.

"We look forward to working with the WWC to develop this event to its full potential" said Ian Birdsall, Chairman of MasterCraft Europe.

In addition to the Wakeboard World Championships, MasterCraft are also the official towboat for the 2004 Wakeboard World Cup series, along with their continued support of other pro events throughout the world.

This is the fifth year of the Wakeboard World Championships and we are delighted to have MasterCraft on board. Their commitment to the sport will make the event a resounding success and we welcome their enthusiasm and professionalism.
