Malibu would like to congratulate Raph Derome and Amber Wing for winning Alliance Wakeboard’s 2012 Rider Of The Year awards in both the male and female categories.
Raph’s season was highlighted with his overall title at the Red Bull Wake Open, as well as several mind-blowing web video releases. He also dominated on the international circuit and his meteoric rise was nothing short of amazing. “I’m really honored to be chosen by Alliance as their ROTY. To be put in the same group as riders like Danny Harf, Randall Harris, Parks Bonifay, Ben Greenwood, Chris O’Shea and more is really crazy. I’m really happy I got to come back this year on the water and I’m now slowly looking forward to next season.”
