Boutique sports media and public relations company, Nine Ounces is proud to announce the signing of one of Australia’s most successful young wakeboarders, Nic Rapa.
After taking up wakeboarding only four years ago, this energetic and talented 18 year old from the Hawkesbury area of New South Wales has made a name for himself both locally and internationally.
Rapa absolutely dominated the junior wakeboarding scene in 2015, taking out not one but two world finals making him one of the most successful junior wakeboarders on the planet.
Back home after a whirlwind year competing overseas, the young Aussie has kept up his relentless pursuit of success and delivered a victory in the 2016 Mastercraft Australian Open, was crowned 2014-2016 Junior Rider of the Year at Rider Choice Awards Australia and has qualified for the Moomba Masters International Invitational.
Moomba Masters is being held from 9-14 March in Melbourne and will see Rapa aiming to make the top 10 in Men’s Division in a field full of world-class competitors. On stepping up early to the Men’s Division this year, Rapa says “After such great results last year, I really feel like I’m ready to move onto the next level. I want to go bigger and better this year.”
His success on the wakeboarding circuit aside, Rapa remains humble and supportive of his fellow competitors. “I think it’s important to stay grounded. No matter who you go up against, everyone’s got the same goal; be the best, but make sure you have fun doing it.”
Hot young talent Nic Rapa is available for sponsorship opportunities.
