The Wake Awards

Each year The Wake Awards see the nomination of the best American athletes in wakeboarding and wakeskating through an open video contest, where the craziest trick landed (and obviously shot) gets the winner some cash and glory.

The competition saw a monumental switch double mobe from Steel Lafferty that made the cut. A few other guys blew our minds off too, like John Dreiling with a board bending rail to rail transfer, or Cory Teunissen’s massive stalefish double backroll.

For the girls, Anna Nikstad wins the first spot with a KGB 540 off the kicker.

I'm an action sports videographer with a background in snowboarding, kitesurfing, wakeboarding and many other 'ings. After 10 years in Southeast Asia, I've stopped home in France in 2020 for a quick oil change and a pandemic and should be back splitting coconuts shortly.
