Let the madness begin! Welcome to the first official collegiate wakeboarding championship series. Empire Wake Events proudly presents the Collegiate Wake Series, a made for rider event to push the sport of collegiate wakeboarding to all new levels. This series is catered for college students and teams to have fun, compete, and experience what college wakeboarding should be like. This is not a made for TV event. It is “by rider for rider” with rider intentions on top of the list.
As a team and school you may ride as many events as you desire. There will be a tour stop in each region so stops are close to your home town. The stops include Wilmington NC, Atlanta GA, Columbus OH, Beaumont TX, and San Diego CA. One championship event will take place in April over 4 days in Austin TX. The events will move around regions to keep it fresh and new so schools don’t have to travel every year.
“The Collegiate Wake Series is all about giving back to the schools. This has not been done in the past.” Says Rob Mendieta, President and Founder. “20% of all raised funds will be placed into a scholarship fund and at the end of the year the winning team and individual will win this scholarship fund.”
A school doesn’t need to have a specific number of riders to ride the regional qualifiers. There are two levels on which riders can qualify their school; individual or by team. We want everyone to have fun and every team to have a fair chance to make it to the Championship Finals. So come represent your school and team, show your colors and join the “Collegiate Wakeboard Series.”
