Wakefest - Albany
Wakefest in Albany continues it's run as one of the longest running events in grassroots wakeboarding. For years, the boys down south have been hosting an annual tournament benefiting a local family in need. From its first years of 20 riders and $1500.00 in donations to expanding that by a factor of nearly ten and adding "Wakefest After Dark" - a post event concert with big-name artists, Wakefest has come a long way from its humble beginnings. Long known as home to some of Georgia's best conditions, Wakefest is the soul of the grassroots scene.
"We're thrilled to continue our relationship with Georgia Wake Series for 2017," said Wakefest director, Adam Gilbert. "This year we are returning to Chehaw Park for the wakeboard tournament. We are working on something special in addition to the wakeboard tournament but details on that are going to have to wait!"
