Events: World Record Attempt at Wake Nation

By Michael Sawan · June 22nd, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

Face it: You love watching people wakeboard. Your heart pounds when you see a kid going 20 mph on a lake.

And Wake Nation? It's the nation's only pully-go-round-a-lake-repeatedly watersports complex.

This weekend some of the region's finest wakeboarders will be practicing their art in order to break some sort of wakeboard-for-a-long-time record. They won’t be going the fastest or the flashiest or behind a boat, but this team of wakers will be going almost all of the weekend.

Awwwww yeah.

Pledged proceeds go to the nonprofit Medlend organization, which provides medical missions to impoverished countries. Admission to watch is free, though riding the lake starts at $25 for two hours. There will also be “photo and autograph sessions, wakeboarding clinics and more” according to the Wake Nation folks.

The park normally operates 10-8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, though expect additional hours to accommodate the record attempt.
