Germany's Frederik von Osten and Australia's Angelika Schiber were the winners of the first international cable-wakeboard world cup round to be held in Japan.
The event was held at Odaiba, a man-made island in Tokyo Bay, and introduced a purpose-built electric cableway for competitors.
In the Open Ladies category, Australia's Angelika Schriber put it all together with a 76 point run for first place.
The men's event saw Germany's world ranking leader Dominik Guehrs from Aschheim score 76.67 points, good enough for second place.
First went to Von Osten after two outstanding runs which scored him 80.67 points.
"I won first place and I am super happy about it," said Von Osten.
Schiber was ecstatic at her win.
"I came here to win it and I did it," she said. "My sponsors are going to be happy with me, I am happy with myself, you know. I did what I came here to do and I nailed it."
Cosima Giemza of Germany and Denise de Haan of Netherlands were second and third in the women's event.
James Young of Great Britain was third in the men's contest.
