Appalachian Open Men’s and Women’s Wakesurf Competition

June 4, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Appalachian Open is a Competitive Wakesurfing Association (CWSA) sanctioned silver level event.
Professional and semi pro riders from across the United States will be competing for their share of $5000
in cash and other prizes. Event organizers are anticipating approximately 60 competitors from across
North America. All net proceeds from the event will benefit Operation Wakesurf, a non-profit
organization committed to supporting Veterans and First Responders.

Wakesurfing is a water sport that takes place using a towboat that is specifically engineered to create
surfable wakes. The surfers are not tethered in any way to the boat, but are instead free to ride the
endless wave created by the boat as it displaces water. It has gained enormous popularity over the past
several years. The Appalachian Open has divisions for Juniors (under 12) all the way up through Masters
(over 45) plus amateur, Outlaw and Professional.

“We are very excited to bring this new event to Johnson City. Winged Deer Park is an excellent venue for
the competitors as well as spectators, and we encourage the community to come out and see what this
sport is all about.” Said event director, Joe Brown.

The event will start June 4th, 2022 at 8:00 AM at Winged Deer Park Lakefront in Johnson CIty. Please visit
www.thecwsa.org/events/2022/appalachian-open for more information. This event is being sponsored
by CBK Watersports, Centurion Boats, No Coast Surfers, WakeOutfitters, Boardco, Sound Decisions,
H20Proshops.com, Wakeballast, and Ronix Wake.
