The NW Wakesurf Association ("NWWSA") announces the Sixth Annual NWWSA Open Competition, to be held July 25-27, 2014, on Lake Tye, located in the City of Monroe, WA.
The weekend event kicks off on Friday with practice runs for registered competitors behind two 2014 Supra SCs equipped with the SWELL Surf System. These are the same boats to be used in the competition and are provided by our exclusive towboat sponsor, Supra Boats. The tournament will take place all day Saturday and Sunday, concluding with the awards ceremony early Sunday afternoon at Lake Tye Park. There will be a number of other events earlier in the week and throughout the weekend, including a no-host social on Friday night and hosted social on Saturday night.
Lake Tye is a man-made lake in the City of Monroe, Washington, located approximately thirty-five minutes (30 miles) northeast of Seattle. The 3,000 foot lake is not open to any other boat traffic and is one of the stops of the MasterCraft Pro-Wakeboard Tour.
The tournament will have men’s and women’s Pro, Outlaw, Amateur, Masters (45+) and Junior (<17) divisions, with awards for each division winner. By popular demand, registrants are allowed to compete in both surf and skim of the same division. As such, competitor spaces are limited, so we strongly recommend registering early. In past years there have also been upward of 400 in-person spectators and even more online viewers watching the live internet video feed on Wake9.com, making this one of the most widely-viewed wakesurf events. 2014 brings the anticipation of even more top professional riders from around the world, in addition to the increasingly skilled and competitive outlaw and amateur divisions.
The NWWSA Open is sanctioned by the World Wakeboard Association and is a qualifying competition leading up to the World Wake Surfing Championships scheduled for Henderson, Nevada in late September.
