Official IWWF press release:
„Julia has dominated Cable Wakeboarding throughout this decade, she has become an exceptional
role model for young girls across our sport and actively encourages girls to push themselves within our sport.
Julia entered her first ever World Championships in 2012 in the Junior Ladies category and absolutely smashed it, becoming the Junior Ladies World Champion, she then became a Professional Wakeboarder in 2013 after giving up Football, and has since won both 2016 & 2018 Open Ladies World Championships. She holds 3 x World Championship titles during the decade.
On winning the latest 2018 World Championships in Argentina Julia said:
How do you rate this victory vs other victories?
It definitely is an important victory because the IWWF Worlds only takes place every two years.
Furthermore, I became IWWF World Champion for the 3rd time (2012 Junior, 2016 & 18 Open ladies)!
Anything you want to say to whoever is out there dreaming with being cable wakeboarding world champion?
I think the most important thing is that you really love what you do and to be passionate about it! If you really want something and have fun doing it, you will reach your goals.
We cannot wait to see what the next decade brings for Julia, and love seeing all of
her social media posts pushing our sport more and more.
Congratulations Julia - this is such a well-deserved award.“
During her stay at Sunset Wakepark in Brasil Julia Rick became the first female ever to land a KGB 540. This is a World’s first and one more trick she lands as the only woman. She published the trick in a video edit filmed with the Panasonic Lumix GH5S by Wilfried Rick.
On her Facebook fan page it has reached already around 70.000 views.
