The WWA is a rider-formed organization dedicated to promoting and growing competitive wake sports around the world. It is the leading source for riders, events and competitive standards and the undisputed sanctioning and governing body for the sport.
For over 30 years the WWA has been the world’s premier provider of amateur and professional wakeboard events, sanctioning and rules; “developed by riders, for riders”. Since its inception in 1989, the WWA has empowered the sport of wakeboarding to progress and evolve naturally by providing various amateur and professional sanctioning programs, protecting its riders through extensive amateur and professional membership levels and allowing freedom and opportunities for organizers to grow the sport.
As an industry champion, the WWA has sanctioned, insured and organized over 15,000 global events to date. With affiliates operating on every continent, the WWA is in a position to positively affect the growth of everything wake; wakeboard, wakesurf, wakeskate and wake park. Most of the small group of impassioned riders and founders who helped create both the organization and the sport are still involved today, helping to continue growth and remain relevant as a driving force in the sport. With the WWA staying true to it’s roots, “by riders, for riders”, one can expect the next 30 years to only be bigger and better.
