Teen wakeboarder seeks to set new world record

Print Article

Becca Stuck, 16, wakeboards Lake Coeur d'Alene, Thursday evening, in an attempt to wakeboard all 50 states in 21 days for a new world record and to help bring awareness to nonprofit Wake the World. Stuck began her tour July 9th and will wakeboard Montana's Flathead Lake and North Dakota's Edward Arthur Patterson Lake next.

A 16-year-old from North Carolina made Lake Coeur d’Alene a stop Thursday on a journey to set a new world wakeboarding record.

In her Wakeboard America 2016 challenge, Becca Stuck plans to wakeboard in all 50 states in 21 days.

Her journey began July 9, on Lake Norman in North Carolina and she will finish on Saturday, July 30 on Douglas Lake in Tennessee.

“Ever since I can remember I have had a passion for wakeboarding,” said Stuck, before coming to Coeur d’Alene.

Hagadone Marine Group volunteered to pull Stuck on the lake in a 2016 Malibu 23 LSV. Malibu Brand Sales Manager Chris Craig of Hagadone Marine drove the boat for her.

Craig is a former pro-rider on the wakeboard circuit.

“I’ve been in the industry 15 years, and a fan of water sports for even longer. I...am excited to help Becca achieve her challenge and set the new record,” Craig said.

Wakeboard America 2016 has teamed with the nonprofit Wake the World, a volunteer group of boat owners that provides water sports and opportunities to abandoned, abused and neglected children, as well as for the disabled and wounded warriors.

Wakeboard America 2016 is meeting with as many Wake the World events as they can along their trip.

After completing her stop in Coeur d’Alene, Stuck’s next stop is Flathead Lake in Montana.
