The Professional Wakeskate League : Stop #3 Valdosta Wake Compound

The third and final stop of the PWL presented by Grain Wakeskates

The Wakeskating community came together this past weekend for the final stop of the PWL tour. We couldn’t have asked for better weather for camping, riding, fellowship and good times. Campers, RV’s and tents covered the grounds as the grass roots style event kicked off on Thursday with practice for all riders competing. Groups gathered with coolers and beach chairs to soak up the cool Georgia air as others hung closely to the shade under the historic Big Oak trees that call this magical place home.

Our host and one of the best in the industry do to it, the crew at Valdosta Wake Compound worked countless hours building and rearranging the advanced 2.0 cable for the contest. With skateboarding being a key fundamental in wakeskating, the VWC crew went above and beyond to create a layout with hubba ledges , handrails, and stair-set style drops. Read More >

Kicking off the final stop of the series, the day started off with plenty of activities including a Body Glove SUP morning yoga class, foods trucks, and free beer, which added some extra spice to the mix that made you reminisce about some of the pre-pandemic pro competitions that we all remember and love. As for the women in this contest, they knew the assignment and took it to a whole other level. You could tell from some of the practice sessions that the riders were pushing themselves and testing new lines to hopefully take home the gold. Aside from the competition itself, the level of support that each of the women competitors had for each other throughout the day was like nothing I have ever seen before. Win or lose, these women were cheering each other on and keeping the hype on the dock at an all-time high. Read More >

Connect, Share, Celebrate and Serve. It’s what Wake for Warriors does!

“I needed this!”… a phrase heard several times over the weekend here on Lake Allatoona for event #4 of the 2021 Wake for Warriors season.  A sense of deep gratitude came over the water as a reflection of how exciting and confident we all were in cherishing these special moments following the pandemic.  The BuyWake crew joined Dave Deep, founder of WFW, and the rest of the group for another inspiring weekend full of blue skies, lake vibes, and shakas all around!

Kicking off the event, the chilly air of Friday morning lifted just as the coffee ran out and the riders started to shed their wetsuits. Boats were stocked with a quiver of wakeboards, wakesurfers and CGA vests provided by the good folks from Hyperlite Wake. For the new-goers, the day as a whole was an introduction to the healing power of water sports, and the more experienced veterans were captivated by a new challenge of foiling. Read More >
