The goal of this brand new project is to assemble the definitive group of the most important images in Wake and preserve them for the enjoyment and education of future generations.
Photos are getting lost, VHS tapes and films are degrading, and the memories of these pivotal events are fading fast. Now is the time to gather them in one place for all to remember: the WakeREGISTRY in the Wakeboarding Hall of Fame.
Focus: historical importance, iconic imagery, breakthrough moments, cultural significance, pivotal events, timeless artistry, etc.
2015 Season: April-July (4 “winners”, 5-9 additional honored images for each category)
2008 OR OLDER (for 2015 Nominations)
Honored images should be at least 7 years old to have “stood the test of time” and be viewed with some historical perspective.
The May, 2015 category is VIDEOS
What videos did you watch over and over? Why were the influential in Wake?
The Pointless Posse, headed by Shane Bonifay, took two years to complete this breakthrough video that documented a time of transition in the sport.
Now Accepting Public Nominations: 2008 or older
The public is invited to nominate and upload images via our online form.
