The 2016 Wake Awards

The 2016 Wake Awards went down at Surf Expo in the dramatic fashion that it always does. Hopefully you paid attention all night on Twitter as it all unfolded, but if you didn’t, we've got the full list of results below. The night went down as it always does, with the top riders, industry heads and the who’s who of the wake industry staring at the incessant glow of the stage as the winners are unveiled and the masses cheer. We asked Brad Smeele to co-host the 2016 Wake Awards with Dano the Mano, and it was one of the best shows yet.

We’d like to give a special thanks to Malibu Boats, WSIA, Indmar Marine Engines, Rockford Fosgate Marine Audio, SeaDek, ZF Marine, Roswell, Surf Expo, Acme Marine, Sesitec, Wet Sounds Marine Audio, and PTM Edge Watersports for helping make the 2016 Wake Awards a success!
