Sunday is the fourth annual #PassTheHandle day, an event that encourages people of all skill levels to participate in water sports.
Backed by the Water Sports Industry Association, the event is intended to grow enthusiasm for tow sports by training people about the correct way to be safe and have fun when they are on the end of a tow rope.
People can get involved by teaching a first-timer to ride, ski, tube or surf. Event organizers encourage posting photos and videos on social media with the hashtag #PassTheHandle.
Those who can’t get out on the water this Sunday can donate to the WSIA, which will provide seed money to wake parks and schools to help grow #PassTheHandle events in the future.
