11 Athletes Win National Kneeboard Titles

Eleven athletes won national kneeboard titles in respective divisions and events at the 29th Kneeboard National Championships, Sept. 28-29, at the Orlando Watersports Complex in Orlando, Fla. The Nationals was organized and hosted by the American Kneeboard Association, a sport discipline organization of USA Water Ski.

Athletes competed in 10 divisions – ranging from Junior to Open – for titles in slalom, tricks, overall, freestyle and flipout. In the slalom event, competitors attempted to ski around each buoy in a six-buoy course, with the towline being shortened each time a complete pass was achieved. In tricks, the rider performed as many maneuvers as possible in two 20-second passes. Tricks scores were based on a predetermined point-value system. The subjectively scored freestyle event included a variety of flips and aerial maneuvers. In flipout, participants competed for a maximum of 25 seconds, completing 10 flips in the shortest amount of time.

In Open Men, Kent Hartshorn (Goose Creek, S.C.) won titles in tricks and overall, and men’s freestyle, while Doug Rogerson (Plaquemine, La.) won slalom and men’s flipout. In Open Women, A’lisa Piper (Lake Placid, Fla.) swept titles in slalom, tricks and overall, as well as freestyle and women’s flipout.
