Raimi Merritt clinched her eighth professional women’s wakeboarding world cup win last weekend at the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation (IWWF) Wakeboard World Cup in Palembang, Indonesia. Merritt had suffered a defeat at the last World Cup stop in Mandurah, Australia in March, but she roared back with a flawless ride in Indonesia.
“It feels awesome to come back to Palembang and take the win here again,” said Merritt. “The weather was beautiful in the finals, and everyone rode really well. I am so excited to have won my eighth World Cup stop in Indonesia; I can’t wait to come back.”
