Wakeboarding Groups Collaborate

Wakeboarding Hall of Game

The World Wake Association signed a memorandum of agreement with the Wakeboarding Hall of Fame under which the organizations will work to preserve the history of wake sports and honor pioneering contributions.

The agreement sets the stage for united operations, including a Hall of Fame induction process that acknowledges the world’s current, top-performing wake-sports athletes and ensures that historic records are properly kept.

The WWA owns and operates the WWA Wakeboard World Series, WWA Wake Park World Series, WWA Wakeboard National Championships, WWA Wake Park National Championships and other events. For nearly a year, the organizations have discussed a more cohesive approach to each other’s operations, including joint promotions.

“We realized that the two organizations had a lot in common,” Mike Weddington, Wakeboarding Hall of Fame president, said in a statement. “The agreement will provide for improved communication and better promotion of the Wakeboarding Hall of Fame’s annual induction ceremony.”

Added WWA executive director Corrie Wilson: “For more than 32 years, the WWA has provided a stage for all wake-sports athletes to compete across the globe. Many of our earliest athletes are already Hall of Fame inductees, so it just made sense … for the WWA to join forces with the Hall of Fame in order to preserve and honor those that were truly a part of the history of our sport.”
