Cohen brothers rule the National Points Chase
9 october 2012
Over 225 registered riders, from 14 different parks, converged at BSR Cable Park in Waco, Texas for the largest wakeboard event in the US. Throughout the 2012 Summer Series 700 riders competed at parks across the country to qualify for a spot to compete in the Championship event both for individual and team honours. The best of the best enjoyed the Texas Hospitality from BSR Cable Park, one of the finest cable parks in the world. Pro riders fought for their share of the $10,000 in prize money while amateur riders were awarded wakeboards from the event sponsors like Jobe. In the end one team champ and seven individual champions were crowned but everyone had a wonderful experience!
The Cohen brothers took part in the OWC team and battled it out with the other cable park teams. OWC was able to win the team title with teamwork and strong showing by the entire team. In the individual competitions Julian Cohen took 2nd place in the Semi Pro Division. His little brother Yonel took 5th place in the pro obstacles category.
The Cohen brothers were pretty psyched about the National Points Chase:
Julian: ‘’WOOHOOOO GOT 2nd in nationals points chase =) also my little brother made it to finals in the obstacles!!!! BEST THING IS TEAM OWC CAME IN FIRST :):) good
