The World Wakeboard Association (WWA) has announced it will change its name to World Wake Association.

The subtle modification aims to represent all wake sports better, and not just wakeboarding. The new World Wake Association designation will take effect for the 2017 season.

“Former board member of the WWA, Matt Hickman, suggested this name change a few years ago, but the timing did not seem right even though I always knew this would eventually take place,” explained Shannon Starling, president of the WWA.
