Wakesurf Contest

Lake of the Sky Wakesurf CLASSIC

Video Contest

The Homewood High & Dry Marina, in conjunction with Superior Boat Sales & Repair and Nautique, are thrilled to announce the first Lake of the Sky Wakesurf Classic – Video Contest!  Submit a 1 to 3 minute video of you, your family and friends wakesurfing on Tahoe, highlighting the story behind a day on the lake in the Sierra Nevada mountains, for your chance to win over $2,000 in prizes.

Prize packages will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and winners will be determined by a panel of judges. We also have a $200 gas card to give away to the video with the most public votes!

We know that not everyone has a drone or a top-of-the-line wakesurf boat, so this video contest is based on the story you can tell, showcasing the lake we all love, with the equipment you have.

Though we have a bias to Nautiques 😉 videos can be captured on any boat, BUT all video submissions must feature Lake Tahoe.

So what are you waiting for?! Get out on the boat and start filming!
