As the Jersey Wakeoff approaches its ninth year of providing family friendly competition, we wanted to take a look back at the history of the Wakeoff.
In 2008, a young, enthusiastic, wakeboarder wanted to fill a void in a region with limited exposure to the great sport of wakeboarding. With the help of Lake Hopatcong Marine, family, and friends the Garden State, Wakeoff was born. For two years Hopatcong State park hosted our great event. In 2010, the Garden State Wakeoff shifted to the Lake Forest Yacht Club, a prime location in Lake Hopatcong’s Northern most cove, with a huge beach venue, and outstanding amenities it was the perfect fit. For 2012 the competition was renamed with some Jersey Fresh style, the competition was dubbed the JERSEY WAKEOFF!
In 2013, spectators and riders arrived at a glassy lake yielding soft winds, warm temperatures, and perfect water conditions. Summertime welcomed the Jersey Wakeoff with open arms!
2016 proved to be the best year in Wakeoff history! Although the temperatures were at record highs that didn’t stop the largest group of riders in history from competing as over 1000 spectators looked on from the beach and their boats! Join us again this year now that everything is finally returning to normal!
