2012 Collegiate Wake Championships!!
April 18th - 22nd Lake Las Vegas, Nevada.

Lake Las Vegas and Montelago Village Resort would like to welcome the Collegiate Wake Series Championships!

The event is set up in a bracket style format with 8 teams going head to head until just 1 remains the Champion of all of College Wakeboarding.

Each team is allowed 8 riders. 7 will be in a single division and 1 must be a female (Totaling 8). The 2 female riders go head to head for some bonus points while the other 7 ride 1 division placing 1thru 14.

Each place receives points (i.e. 1st = 200 pts, 2nd = 160 pts, 3rd= 120pts..). Once all the riders are placed, the team scores will be added up and the winner will move on.

There will be 4 days of action on Lake Las Vegas. We will promise you this, it will be the sickest wake event you have participated in. Expect a Vegas style atmosphere.

As a special bonus, everyone attending will get a chance to meet and see Randall Harris, Keith Lidberg, Alex Graydon and a few other guest tear up Lake Las Vegas for the first time! Riders have wanted to hit this spot for years and now a select few, plus all the college teams, will have that chance. It is going to be a show so bring your cameras!

There is lots to do in the area as well. Expect a packed weekend of activities thanks to FlightLinez, Red Bull, and some other local supporters.

The brackets will be adjusted so the highest place teams will ride against the lowest. (1st place vs. 8th, 2nd vs. 7th)

The final 4 will be held on Sunday. The top 2 teams will be taking home the prizes and a little something special!

Everyone is invited! All rooms are booked through Empire Wake and we are happy to book extra rooms at our special rate. Even if your team does not make the cut, you are still welcome to come be a part of this epic week.
