Georgia Wake Series: there will be seven stops on the 2017 season

The Georgia Wake Series has revealed the full schedule for 2017 season.

Coming off a hugely successful inaugural season which saw over 130 unique riders participate in six events across the State as well as over $24,000 in purse and prizes, the organization announced the expansion of the competition for 2017.

This year, the Series is adding an additional stop while balancing the two disciplines of Boat and Park through an increased number of wake park events, including a trip to one of the most progressive parks in the world, the Valdosta Wake Compound.

Alex Graydon might have stepped off of the competitive scene, but he's still out there setting the trends, and taking the sport to incredible heights.

Are you ready to step into wake foiling? The newly launched Wake Foil Academy will guide you through the new wakeboarding discipline.

Slingshot believes that wake foiling is a natural evolution that started with wakeboarding, and then progressed to wakesurfing.

"Imagine feeling like you are snowboarding in three feet of fresh, untouched powder. Or, floating above the water, from turn to turn in any water condition. That is wake foiling," states the action sports company.
