Event Sanctioning

Planning a Grass Roots wakeboard, wakeskate or wakesurf event for 2017? The WWA is the best place to start for all your sanctioning and planning needs for a successful and fun event. Whether you would like to hold a contest, clinic or demo we can assist you to help your event run smoothly. We provide the tools you need for all your sanctioning, memberships and media announcements.

Contests. Holding a contest in your local area is a fun way to introduce competition to your local wake scene. Encourages riders to progress their riding and challenge their ability on the water in a fun non-intimidating atmosphere.

Demos. A great way for shops, boat dealerships and/or cable parks to get their customers out to try new gear before they buy. Helps riders to be on the right equipment for them, which will ultimately allow for riders to have more fun and progress faster.

Clinics. Are typically put on by local boat dealerships for either a customer appreciation day or for lessons by a professional instructor or Pro rider; where some areas may not have access to that level of instruction. A great way to help progress riding safely and properly. Clinics can be sanctioned in private or public environments, the world is your oyster.

The WWA is passionate for wake sports.
