FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Action Event Group, LLC Announces 2016 Amateur Georgia Wake Tour

Atlanta, Georgia (January 12, 2016) – Action Event Group, LLC announced today the inaugural season of the 2016 Georgia Wake
Series, a World Wakeboard Association sanctioned tour and state championship. The five stop tour will deliver events across the state
of Georgia, world class riding conditions and tow boats, a format for riders of all skill levels and disciplines, a stop at Atlanta’s premier
wake-park, and the largest collection of prizes ever seen in Georgia wakeboarding.
Home to one of the highest concentrations of wake-enthusiasts in the country, Georgia has long been in need of a refreshed amateur
wakeboard tour – a tour that acts as a natural step to Regional, National, and Professional events, and a tour that gives back to the
participants. With local and industry support, the Georgia Wake Series will fulfill these needs by providing an avenue for competition,
camaraderie, and fun for the many families who create the fabric of the wake community.
The Georgia Wake Series will debut on a private wakeboard lake in Rome, ensuring pristine conditions for all participants. Next, the
tour will make its way to the towers and turf of Terminus Wake Park, integrating the progressive segment of cable riding. The tour will
then travel south to the glassy waters of the Flint River for the largest grassroots charity tournament in the state, WakeFest GA. Lake
Lanier’s Rowing Venue routes the tour back north for the fourth stop. The Rowing Venue is no-wake with special access only to the
Georgia Wake Series. Georgia’s 2016 season concludes with the Georgia Wake Series State Championship, a two-day finale crowning
the winners of the season. And to the victors go the spoils.
For 2016, the Georgia Wake Series is carrying more than $10,000.00 in prizes alone from companies like Ambush Board Co,
WaterSports Central, Pull Watersports, GA Wakeboard Lessons, CWB, Oakley, Terminus Wake Park, and Hyperlite. If that’s not
enough, Liquid Force has a spot up for grabs on their regional team in 2017- offered to the most deserving rider in this year’s
series. Who knows. You didn’t know about us until now; there may be another trick or two up our sleeve. Either way, the Georgia Wake
Series is excited for 2016 and looks forward to having you, your family and your friends for a season of fun, family friendly events.

Lake Ronix Trip – Recap

Courtney Kobold won a trip of a lifetime to Lake Ronix and all she had to do was enter!! Remember that next time we are having a contest because you too can win! Can you imagine spending two days at this magical place? Courtney was kind enough to send us a thoughtful email recounting her time at Lake Ronix.

So, Lake Ronix. It was definitely an experience.

We landed in Orlando Friday night and decided we should probably go out and celebrate by getting Brett drunk and we definitely succeeded. The next day we were given a tour of Lake Ronix, which is an incredible property, and took a couple sets on the boat on two Ronix surfers. We followed the day up with a rowdy night out with a couple of the team riders who were an absolute blast. Never a dull moment with Justin Teich and Todd Watson that’s for sure. The next morning started out with personally delivered Pizza for breakfast from Parks. What a legend. During the day we hit up the front lake for a couple down and backs. Which was awesome. That night we chilled out by the fire and Todd told some pretty interesting ghost stories. The next morning we went on a killer paddle around the entire lake with Lily (Justin’s pup). We then hung around the lake and watched Massi and Jamie throw down before we headed back to the airport. Being able to ride at Lake Ronix was definitely one for the books and we cannot wait to go back. We couldn’t thank BuyWake and Ronix enough for the opportunity and for the incredible time. Also, a special shout to Brett for being our Dad for the weekend, wouldn’t have made it with out you pops! Happy shreds until next time! Read More >

Inside The 2015 Wakeboard World Series

This year the WWA released a world series bigger than anything we have seen before.  Seriously, the locations and prize money are the best it has ever been.  We sat down with Corrie Wilson and she helped to answer some of our questions regarding the upcoming 2015 Wakeboard World Series.

2015 WBWS

BW:  So first things first – $425,000 is a ton of chedder.  How did you all manage to pull such funds?  “The 2015 Wakeboard World Series is unlike anything wake sports has seen in the past including the largest payout ever offered”

The WWA: We really wanted to raise the bar this year for the Wakeboard World Series. The WWA’s partners, both domestically and internationally, all share our vision for the future of wakeboarding. Everyone got together and really stepped up for this year’s Wakeboard World Series; we couldn’t be more excited. It wouldn’t be possible without great partners like Rockstar Energy Drink, Nautique, Malibu, Supra, and many others for being dedicated to the sport. Read More >
