The young Emirati was also awarded the title for the most wakeboard rail airs in 30 seconds, doubling the record once set by Macquart.
“Having this global recognition in hand makes me proud as an Emirati, as this is certainly the jewel in the crown of so many years of achievement and success.”
Almheiri said when he first started wakeboarding when he was 13 years old, he fell in love with the sport. Since then, it has allowed the professional wakeboarder to travel the world.
“I joined a friend for a visit to a cable park, and I was hooked; my life has changed since then. I knew it was just my first time, but would definitely not be my last,” Almheiri said.
He has been the unbeaten champion of the UAE Open Men’s National since 2012, according to Guinness.
