It has been a tragic time and an amazing time for the wakeboard community. With the life threatening injuries of Brad Smeele and Matt Manzari this month, the wakeboard community, like never before, has become one. Everyone in the sport worldwide has become part of the support family of both Brad and Matt.

We saw the love and support of the wakeboard community not long ago when our
truck was stolen in Atlanta Georgia. It was such a blessing to see how much people in this one sport care for each other and helped us.

In response to giving back to the sport that has given us everything, we are selling a custom #StayStrongBrad die-cut sticker on TheEmpireShop.com.
The stickers come in Red, White and Matte Black sold for $10 each and with 100% of the proceeds being donated weekly to the Brad Smeele Foundation.

Our goal is to create a visible sign and conversation piece in order to bring more support and attention to the Smeele’s family financial needs. We know this is bigger than just the wakeboard community and the awareness needs to be spread.

Empire Wake has also set up a simple button on the Empire Wake mobile app linked to both donation pages. It is a simple way to connect to Brad and Matt and get updates on the progress of each recovery.

Click here for #StayStrongBrad custom Die-Cut stickers that donates to the Brad Smeele Foundation.

Thank you for joining the fight with us from Brad and Matt.
