MasterCraft Boat’s 3 Time World Champion Andrew Adkinson called the event, “an awesome success,” and claims, “it’s the events like this [Wylie’s Wicked Wakefest] that inspires the next generation of riders and keeps our sport heading in the right direction.”
The Wylie’s Wicked Wakefest event is hosted annually in October by the crew at Charlotte Ski Boats, the Charlotte, NC area MasterCraft Boats dealer. The event format requires riders to hit monster double ups to amplify the show for the Big Air Competition and the Best Trick Competition. Intermittent exhibitions performed by MasterCraft Boat’s Pro Wakeboarders Rusty Malinoski and Josh Palma left spectators in awe as they performed professional level tricks at mind bending heights. The crowd was energized to compete for many free giveaways including a Hyperlite Wakeskate, Life vest, Mastercraft Apparel and Accessories, as well as many event shirts.
Charlotte Ski Boats Owner: Lee Levandowski couldn’t be more excited about how well the event turned out and stated “It has been inspiring to witness the growth of the event over the years; riders progressing and growing up, building the water sports communities by introducing friends to one another, seeing the crowd and riders interact with the pros. I am grateful to be able to have such a fun event in my back yard that so many people enjoy!”
