Golden Ticket Winner, Matt Sims States, “This is a great opportunity for me, and a huge motivator. It gives me a chance to compete against the top 40 wakeboarders in the World… It’s time to step it up!”

In it’s 4th year, the Spring 2 Summer (S2S) wakeboard event, held on Lake Guntersville June 3-5, has been an event that wakeboarders and fans look forward to all year long. Attendees travel from all over the South to catch some of the best wakeboarding and fun the South has to offer. This year’s S2S was a little different than in the past; this year the PWT and the WWA’s Golden Ticket was awarded. Alabama wakeboard legend and JD Webb’s ex-roomate, Matt Sims from Jasper, AL, has been making spectators awe at his natural talent for the better half of the past decade. And with this Golden Ticket, he will be given the chance to make the Knoxville MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour something to get excited about.

“Having the WWA involved really helped the advertising of the event. Had people from Florida and Kentucky driving to the event that were already WWA members.” Dustin Middlebrooks, WakeFactory.net President; “Looking forward to working with the WWA on all future events. Axis Wake Research has got the wake figured out on the A22. Everyone loved the wake and the boat.”
