2021 Wake Awards winners

As a result of the current world climate, the traditional event honouring the best things in wake was featured online for the third time.

Much like the ‘Oscars’ of Wake, the Wake Awards winners are voted by a panel of industry experts like the ‘academy’ (unlike the popular Reader’s Poll contest where the fans get to vote for their favourite riders). The annual affair has been running for over two decades and to win the coveted Wake Award is considered to be the highest honour.

This year the show was bigger than ever, with 20 awards presented by the best content creators in the industry, including new awards for Women’s Park, Check Out and Full Scope categories, plus Wakesurfing and Wakeskating men and women got recognized for the first time.

And the winners are…

In the boat category, seven-time-World Champion Meagan Ethell won the female Rider Of The Year award. Ethell has previously won six ROTY titles and was also voted the fan favorite boat rider in the Reader’s Poll.

In the men’s division the top honors went to Italy’s Massi Piffaretti who made the biggest impact during 2021 in contests, social media posts and video edits.
