The 2011 Windermere Wakefest, which kicked off the professional wakeboard season in the United States, was held April 16-17 at Lake Down in Windermere, Fla. The tournament served as the qualifying event for the 2011 U.S. Pan American Games Team. The top athlete who opted for consideration was Andrew Adkison (Orlando, Fla.). He will have the honor of representing the United States at the 16th Pan American Games, Oct. 20-23, in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The four water ski athletes who will represent the United States at the Pan American Games will be selected later this summer.
