World Sports & Marketing Granted License to Produce

Nautique & Rockstar WWA Wake Park National Championships

Orlando, Fla. — World Sports & Marketing, the organizer of wakeboarding’s elite King of Wake series, has been granted the license to produce the 2013 Nautique & Rockstar WWA Wake Park National Championships Presented by Polaroid Action. Taking place at Wake Nation Cincinnati on July 25-27, the event will coincide with and be tied to the Nautique WWA Wakeboard National Championships, which will be held for wakeboard boat riders just 15 minutes away at Voice of America Park in West Chester, Ohio.


“Combining both Wakeboard (Boat) & Wake Park (Cable) National Championships has been something that the WWA has always wanted to do; however, the opportunity just hasn’t come together, until now,” said Rob Corum, executive director World Wakeboard Association. “We are more than ecstatic to see both amazing contests conjoin into a true dual-aspect event and can’t wait to see the riders rip it up behind the boat and on the cable.”

The event features a crossover option, which encourages cable and boat riders to compete in both disciplines. The schedule of events and proximity of the venues allow athletes to compete in both events; however, dual participation is not required.

“We are thrilled WWA granted World Sports & Marketing the license to produce this year’s Wake Park Nationals,” said Chris Bischoff, competition director. “The partnership and involvement of Nautique, Rockstar and Polaroid Action will elevate the event to new levels of production, promotion and credibility while serving as a huge step in the growth of the sport.”


The merger of the two events creates the largest participation for a single event in the history of wakeboarding. To celebrate the landmark achievement, a wake banquet will be held in conjunction with the event on July 27, bringing together hundreds of boat and cable riders for this monumental occasion.
