Publish date:

The Wakeboarding Hall of Fame has announced its 2018 inductees. Parks Bonifay, Randall Harris, Cobe Mikacich and Sarah Cline were all named. Filmmaker Ronn Seidenglanz, who documented the growth of wake sports, was also named to the Hall of Fame. Lifetime Achievement acknowledgements will be awarded to Bill Porter and Chuck Morrow, two industry retailers and lifelong sport promoters.

“The 2018 induction class includes some of the sport’s most influential and notable visionaries from wakeboarding’s earliest years before it was accepted as the popular action sport it is today,” said a statement.

Several of last year’s inductees, including Tara Hamilton, were not able to attend the 2017 ceremony due to Hurricane Irma. They will be honored in a special presentation before the 2018 class of inductees. The induction ceremony will be held on September 6 at 10:30 a.m. at Surf Expo on in Orlando, Fla.
