Before the 2015 Nautique Boats Masters, a perfect score of 100.00 had only been achieved once in professional board sports competition history, and it was in snowboarding. Shaun White scored a perfect 100.00 in the 2012 Winter X Games half pipe and set the internet on fire with praisers and haters a like. The question we’re all asking, is a perfect 100.00 something that competing athletes strive for?
Watch below and ask yourself did he score a 100.00 or 99.73?
Fast forward to 2015 and check out Harley Clifford’s final run that scored him a perfect 100.00 at the 2015 Nautique Boats Masters.
Now understand this…we know the comparison of wakeboarding to snowboarding is a long shot, but without a doubt, Harley Clifford truly deserved a perfect score of 100.00. If you’re able to link those same tricks together, then you too deserve a perfect score. Harley Clifford’s perfect score run will forever go into the history books as “the perfect run” and you can’t take that away from him. So to all you wakeboarders out there that want to get into this sport – start learning double flips. Seriously the game has changed. Shout out to Chad Hesse, hitting the first ever triple flip in wakeboarding history. 2015 is already a great year for the wakeboarding record books!
