2020 – Wake NZ Nationals
October 30, 2020 @ 8:00 am - October 31, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
*UPDATE* – Tues 27 Oct
Due to a lesser than usual number of competition entries we have made a decision to run the 2020 Wakeboard Nationals Competition as a one day event instead of a two day event. The venue remains the same (Horahora Domain, Piarere, Cambridge).
Riding Familiarisation will now take place on Friday afternoon from 3pm for both boats.
Competition day will be now be Saturday 31st October.
We will also be reducing the entry fee to $80 (plus 5% booking fee) for all divisions and will be refunding the difference to all competitors already entered.
If you have already entered and you decide that you now don’t want to participate in the one day event please contact us for a full refund.
We have a few entry places left for the competition event which will be allocated on a first in first serve basis, please sign up via Live Heats here
Any Questions please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our AGM is being held at 5.30 on Friday 30th October at Piarere Hall, 5920 State Highway 29, Piarere (after the familiarisation) we would love to see you there, so please save the date. Questions and contributions from the floor welcome.
