|Atlanta, Georgia (Tuesday, April 27, 2021) – Action Event Group, LLC is thrilled to announce an improved Georgia Wake Series presented by WaterSports Central and Buywake.com! With revised classes, an updated purse and prizes, and all-new towboats, the 2021 season aims to create an even better platform for all wakeboarders, men and women, from beginner to pro. With two boat and two cable stops, the 2021 Georgia Wake Series continues to deliver the most balanced grassroots series with superb locations, big prizes, and riding formats designed to welcome new competitors and encourage well-rounded rider progression.
|The 2021 Series features a revised class list, with Women’s Advanced being one of the most notable additions. Other changes include allowing an extra fall for the beginner boat divisions to support new competitors. Series director Brandon Lee said, “Looking at how the improved boat wakes like those of the G23 have helped accelerate rider progression, we felt it was time to re-scale some of the tricks on the boat side. With the addition of the Women’s Advanced division, we are excited to give our ripping ladies an additional platform to compete on! And with a Series Overall cash purse equal to the Men’s Advanced Division Overall courtesy of Buywake.com, we expect to see some heavy competition there!”
|As mentioned, long-time grassroots supporter Buywake.com has again stepped up with a hefty investment of gift cards and cash for Series overall finalists in all divisions. Buywake.com’s Lee Elliott said “Grassroots wakeboard events are essential to a thriving wakeboard culture. Contests like these are proving grounds for tomorrow’s pro wakeboarders…and no one does it better than the Georgia Wake Series. Brandon and his team create a true Pro Tour type environment and make each stop of the Georgia Wake Series an incredible experience for the riders and everyone involved.” Beginner through Intermediate Series finalists will receive Buywake.com gift cards while both the Men’s and Women’s Advanced divisions will receive equal cash payouts! Finally, the Open division will provide a lucrative cash purse for the top three overall riders in the state! With a total value of $7,250 between cash and gift cards, the Georgia Wake Series continues to lead the way in awards for grassroots wakeboard tournaments.
|The ever-popular Terminus Wake Park and Valdosta Wake Compound play host to the cable portion of the Series, book-ended by Lake Spivey and Lake Acworth, each bringing their unique flair. For 2021, WaterSports Central and Nautique Boats are proud to debut the all-new G23 and G23 Paragon as the official towboats of the Georgia Wake Series.
