About The Wake Up
In its 6th Year, The Wake Up event has taken on a festival feel with competitors, audience,
supporting brands and vendors coming from throughout the Mountain West region to take part in
the fantastic action/adventure sports energy and family friendly vibe at this amazing spectator
friendly location. With influence stretching from Montana and Idaho to Nor Cal, Nevada,
Arizona and of course Utah, this event sees attendance of 3k plus each year and growing. It is
quite a spectacle to see the shoreline solid with spectators and a hundred plus boats in the tie off
along the competition tow line. The goal, as with the added Surf event demo is to create more
events throughout the season at Pineview and perhaps other locations under the Wake Up
masthead. For more information please visit
