About King of Wake
Viewed as the world’s elite pro wakeboarding series, the King of Wake ties the sport’s most prestigious contests together into one ultimate season-long points chase to see who rules the wake.
Athletes from around the world compete during the course of a season to be named the “King of Wake” – an award based on points accumulated at each stop of the series. The series includes the Wake Games, the WWA National Championships, the WWA World Championships and all five stops on the Pro Wakeboard Tour- a separate series within the King of Wake.
At each event, athletes battle it out on the water for points by performing rail tricks and aerial stunts, while being pulled by a towboat at a speed of approximately 25mph.
The King of Wake consists of eight events, in which the top qualifying athletes compete for points toward the series standings. Athletes are ranked according to their total points earned throughout the season. The highest total points-earner at the end of the season will be crowned the King of Wake.
To keep the points race tight, the King of Wake features the “Chase for the Crown” format. This format narrows the field of athletes eligible for the crown to the top 10 riders in the standings midway through the season. The 10 athletes involved in the Chase will have their point totals adjusted, following the fifth contest of the series, to tighten the race in the standings.
All athletes will still compete at each of the remaining events in the series, but only the athletes involved in the Chase will have the remaining three stops to top each other for the King of Wake crown.
