Wavedaze 2008 Wrap-up

Wavedaze 2008 Wrap-up

October 4-5, 2008

Wavedaze 2008 proved to be a growing success with over 97 registered riders participating from 15 different states. The wave Gods failed to favor us this year with abnormally tame surf dominating, but the good times and fellowship ruled the weekend. Several riders took the opportunity to ride 13 miles off shore to the Chesapeake Light Tower. Others joined us on a leisurely cruse up the coast escorted by friendly dolphins and a bit of history at the Cape Henry lighthouse. Freeriders stayed close to the beach and ripped the few waves that came our way. The parties continued into the late evening at Chicks Cafe with entertainment on Saturday by The Hemingway Method.

New Jersey’s own Pancake Pete hosted a surf ride clinic and also received the Big Air award for the weekend. Brian Wilkey won the Sick Trick

Our sponsors really stepped it up this year for our charity raffle, and we can’t thank them enough.  Hundreds of items were given out, including hoods from Waterdog Customz and Watercraft Factory, as well as a complete pole kit from X metal.  The sponsor list included names like Atlantic Jet sports, AWA, Group K, Hydro Turf, Hooters, Jet Ski Solutions, Lehr Performance, MSD, PWC Illustrated, Riva, Ronnie Mac, Skat Trac, Slippery Wet Suits, Sunrise Cycles and Watercraft, Wamiltons and many more.

Giving back to the community is an important part of Wavedaze.  Riders raised $2500 for the Virginia Beach Volunteer Water Rescue Squad and another $1000 for the AWA to keep protecting our riding freedoms.  We look forward to seeing you at the next Wavedaze.
