Wake Park World Championships coming to Playa del Carmen

The 2018 Wake Park World Championships are coming to Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, next month.

The event is organized by the World Wake Association (WWA), presented by Nautique Boats and hosted by the Mayan Water Complex, a venue described as having “proven to be a premiere wake destination, with a world-class park fully-equipped to host the world’s top riders in the beautiful Riviera Maya.”

The competition will host riders from over 30 countries who make the journey to the Yucatán peninsula in the hopes of taking home the 2018 WWA World Champion title.

Participants will compete not only for individual titles but to represent their country and home park, accumulating points to determine a winner in each category. Parks from around the world are encouraged to venture out to the Mayan Water Complex with their teams and global leaders for a chance to win the world title.

“One of our goals at the WWA is to continue progressing wake sports at both an individual and global level. We encourage parks from around the world to bring their teams to the Mayan Water Complex for a chance to earn their park’s 2018 world title,” said WWA president Shannon Starling.

The event will take place near Punta Maroma from November 2 to 4.
