Tom Fooshee Joins Us For #PassTheHandle Weekend
Pass The Handle weekend is a 2 day event you’re not going to want to miss. Although the official Pass The Handle day is July 24, we are going to celebrate the whole weekend and pack it full of goodies. Founded by wakeboarding legend, Zane Schwenk, Pass The Handle day encourages people of all ages and abilities to get out on the water and experience the one-of-a-kind feeling of being towed around. Backed by the WSIA and the entire water sports industry, Pass The Handle day aims to grow participant levels by teaching people water sports in a fun and safe way. So grab your gear, grab your friends, and get stoked for this epic weekend. Scroll through the itinerary below to see all the festivities.

Final WWA Points Chase Competition: 10am-12pm
The final Points Chase competition of the season will be kicking off the day. The contest will be from 10am – 12pm. Although the park will be closed to open riding, anyone can participate in the competition and it’s totally free to the public to watch. Each rider will be pushing their limit as they fight for a spot on Action Wake Park’s nationals team.
Buy One, Get One Free Passes: 12pm-8pm
Starting at 12pm, we will be offering buy one, get one free passes for those who bring a new guest to the cable park. In order to qualify for the discount, the participating friend must be a first-timer to Action. Pass The Handle is all about introducing people to water sports in a fun and safe way. What better way to learn water sports than with your friends at Action Wake Park.
Ride With Tom Fooshee & Liquid Force: 12pm-8pm
Ride with Mr. Cable Park himself, Liquid Force team rider Tom Fooshee. Tom will be hanging out at the cable all day ready to provide you instruction, sign autographs, and maybe if you convince him, take a doubles lap with you. Liquid Force will also be here providing you with free LF demos all day long!
