Encinitas CA, (November 23rd, 2020) – The 2020 Moxie Pro Series is complete and this groundbreaking women’s wakeboarding event was led by incredible riding from all of the athletes from around the globe. Never before has there been a global series open to all women wakeboarding athletes, The Moxie Pro created that opportunity and the world was rewarded with all of the best riding from these athletes in one place.
Never before have both cable and boat riders come together to compete in the same series and even in the same event in the final. These women athletes were incredibly supportive of one another throughout the entire series, offering sincere congratulations to the winners and accolades for incredible moves.
Bill McCaffray of Alliance MultiMedia said: “We were hopeful by creating the Moxie Pro platform for the women to showcase their talents that would inspire incredible performances and fan engagement. We could not be any happier and our sponsors are already talking about Moxie Pro 2021. Thank you to all of the athletes who participated, bigger and better to come for 2021.”

The judges were impressed by all of the video segments submitted from these women from around the world ,representing every aspect of wakeboarding today. From incredible boat riding, to winching and some gnarly cable riding every one of the riders submitted an absolutely amazing video segment.
