Wake Games Preview

Rusty & Balzer's low-stress training sesh
Orlando is buzzing right now with anticipation, as the King Of Wake Tour is ready to kickoff at the Wake Games. All the pro riders are back in town, including TransWorld's "Best Wakeboarder" Harley Clifford as well as crazy Canadian wakeskater James Balzer. And the locals like Rusty Malinoski, Bob Soven and Jeff McKee are as fired up as ever.

Harley has been absolutely shredding through the off-season in Australia and has been doing what he does best -- landing new moves and having fun. He will be one of the team captains at this year's Wake Games. "I'm looking forward to the whole team vibe and to see the level of riding after the offseason," Harley said. "My riding is also feeling really good and I have a couple new tricks that I will throw because they're getting consistent."

Rusty, another team captain is in the best shape of his life and is ready to put all his hard work into contest runs. "Everything's just feeling really good." Rusty said. "I'm anxious to get back out there and have a fun season."

Bob will also be a captain and has prided himself on being able to pick the stars, no matter if they're from Pro Men or Amateur Veteran Women. Almost all of his time has been spent in front of MTV cameras, and he's been getting in a lot of shred time.

Also keep an eye on: Josh Twelker, Noah Flegel, Freddie Wayne and Paulie Koch (photo below).
