Girls Ride the Wake 2016
GRTW is a 2 day camp where we provide a fun, pressure free environment where female riders can shred their faces off! Girls Ride the Wake is a 2 day event (with an optional added cable day) for ladies only. We provide camping facilities, boats, drivers and professional mentors/coaches for this two-day adventure:
2016 was the biggest event in its 8 year history turning out 6 Nautique G23 and 2 Nautique G21 boats for a total of 8 Gs in our line-up! Our 60+ registered girls and 9 coaches, including Hyperlite and Nautique rider Raimi Merritt, had the time of their lives riding behind this year’s fleet.
We had participants from 6-54 years old and all levels of riders.
The ladies started Saturday morning with a Yoga warm-up and it was off for their first sets. A few of the ladies up for the first time or tried surfing for the first time and other ladies were landing new inverts and spins as well. The ladies enjoyed their water time but were also eager to get back on shore for Saturday night’s annual raffle. I think everyone went home with some great swag from our sponsors.
Big thanks to Nautique Boats, Superior Boat Repair and Sales, Hyperlite Wake Mfg. and Wake Island Watersports for making this event possible and to our other sponsors (Liquid Force, Prink Tech, Fox, She Shreds Co, CIRE Boardshorts, Redbull, Nalu Tribe, The Water Soul, Thuggie, Lead Wake, Rigg Wake Wear, Boat Bling and @KathleenLovesYoga) for making the raffle one of the best in the industry!
