The 2014-15 college wake and cable season will bring about some changes. We wanted to get these posted soon as possible so all teams have some time to adjust and be prepared.
These changes have been made to help keep the college level on the right track to staying a legitimate level of the sport and continue to be taken seriously in the industry. They are also to help Empire Wake continue improving and creating better and more fun events for everyone.
There are also some division changes to improve the level of riding and push the progression of riders so the college level continues to grow away from all the beginners and into the upper levels of riding.
Please take some time to read the rules old and new so you have an understanding of how everything works. We are excited to continue to help grow College Wakeboarding and Cable. We strive to keep it organized and taken seriously without losing all the fun that college wakeboarding should be.

It was another milestone for the Arizona State Wakedevils. After coming off a national title, and looking to repeat, the Collegiate Wake Series stop 4 in Sacramento set another record. ASU took every single top podium spot in all 6 divisions.
Teams headed out to the Watersports Farm north of Sacramento to ride behind a beautiful Nautique G23. They were met with glassy water, sunshine and an amazing weekend of camping.
Chelsea Clark, Sam Foreman, Robert Skousen, Ryan Platt, Cole Kraiss were the winners for the Wakedevils who brought 24 riders to compete. The other teams competing were Sacramento State, Chico State, Boise State, and Washington State. Boise State was without their top women rider Julie Robinson who was nursing an injury. This left the door open for Chelsea Clark to easily take first over Nataley Conner of Sac State and Mariah Smith of Washington State.
It was also an exciting weekend for ASU team president Ryan Platt. This was his final wakeboard event of his college career and he was able to take 1st place and end on a high note. Ryan has been the president and driving force behind this powerful Wakedevils team for the past 3 years.
Chico State was reloading for the first time after losing all their entire national championship team from 2011-12. Justin Payton (3rd Open), Max Morgan (2nd Advance) and Dylan Rogers(3rd Advanced) lead the Wildcats in the Open and Advanced Divisions and team President Daniel Rueger placed 2nd in Intermediate.
