You Don’t Have To Be A ‘Pro’

You needn't be a pro to compete at these events; the AWA offers eight divisions
to cover all levels of experience and expertise. 

The divisions are Novice (no inverts), Intermediate (two inverts or less), Advanced (5 inverts or less), Outlaw (unlimited inverts), Wakeskate, Masters (35 years and older), Groms (11 years and younger), and Women. 

Ask any long-time member of the AWA why they compete, and it's not for the incredible swag that you can win or the killer boats you get to ride behind; it's the people. 

You will meet more people who share your passion at an AWA event than you can imagine. It is a great environment with even better people. Come see for yourself!

Thanks to the AWA's outstanding sponsors, prizes will be awarded to the top
three finishers in each division.
